It was my privilege and pleasure to be able to congratulate our students on their achievements and also share the sense of prides from their families and friends. Every year I see more students and their families and friends attending than ever before. The achievements of our further education class of 2015 are amongst the highest ever, with many gaining top grades, places at university and national recognition in top industry competitions.
