A day of celebrations

24 November 2017

On Thursday we celebrated the Junior Years Awards Morning and the Middle and Senior Years Speech Day and Prize-giving. The Empire Theatre was packed for both events as special guests, students, parents and staff gathered to acknowledge the academic achievements of our Glennie girls.

Celebrations included an address by Mrs Elizabeth Gillam, Chair of Council and The Right Reverend Cameron Venables, Bishop of the Western Region gave the blessing. Guest speaker at the Middle and Senior Years celebration was Professor Helen Chenery, Executive Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences and Medicine at Bond University. All three special guests took part in presenting prizes to their worthy recipients.

An enormous amount of work goes into preparing for these presentations. Not only do the girls rehearse for the various performances, but staff in both Junior Years and Middle and Senior Years have worked late into the evenings to make sure that all the prizes are allocated correctly and everything is in order for such an important day.

Mention should be made of the sponsors who contribute towards the named prizes that are given annually. These generous members of the Glennie community are greatly appreciated.

Congratulations to every girl who earned an award. Special congratulations to the winners of the major awards.
