The end of the academic year at Barry Comprehensive School is a time to celebrate our student’s many achievements and successes. Parents, students and staff all recognise the link between good attendance and academic attainment and this year attendance was at an all-time high.
Achievement assemblies were held for students to reinforce the importance of attendance, behaviour, effort in class and contribution to school life in musical performances, performing arts, sport and the student
parliament. Year 10 student Joseph O’Sullivan stood out as the top attendee with a 100% attendance record since he started at the school in year 7, a fantastic achievement.
Year 7’s reward assembly was extra special this year with parents being invited to attend and cheer on their sons. Gold, Silver and Bronze certificates were awarded to every year 7 pupil based how well they had done throughout the year. A team of year 7 boys (Edward Beer, Caleb Bowsher, Oliver Coborn, Bradley Farr, Dylan Hooper , Kai Ludvigsen, Max Pruce , Sam Stacey and Owain Woodfin) spoke to the audience to highlight particular areas of success.
Year 7 pupil of the year was awarded to Jacob McSheehy of 7GW for 100% attendance, excellent academic progress, effort, politeness and his contribution to school life. Mr Williams, Senior Learning Mentor for Year 7, described Jacob as a ‘model pupil’.
Congratulations to all the students involved.
