Year 11 celebration
So here we are at the end of five years at Lincoln Christ’s Hospital School.
For some of you, you have been dreading this moment. For others, it can’t come soon enough. And within weeks/months – many of your lives as they currently are will change dramatically. Your lives will alter, develop and grow and, step by step, you will come closer to your ultimate aims.
But this is not the end for most of you – this is merely the end of a chapter as most of you will return as Year 12 where you will be encouraged to gain further skills and knowledge for university and employment.
I would like to pay tribute to and thank all of the members of staff – tutors, teachers, support staff, mentors, teaching assistants, Heads of Year and many, many more who have stuck by you through thick and thin and have helped you every step of the way – what a great bunch of people! We all owe them a great deal for seeing us through to today.
These special moments, this assembly, your prom, your lessons, sports events ,will stay with you for the rest of your lives. If you ask any members of staff, many will remember the people they went to school with, they will remember the good times and bad times they had together. We all have a story to tell.
This is the last time you will meet like this as a year group in this setting. And today the school loses something. Every year group is special and every student within each year group is special – and the class of 2016 is no different. Our school today is losing a little bit of its identity and we will be left with the memories. These are what we will cherish in the years ahead.
Our school has a long history – and you have now earned your permanent place in the history books of LCHS. Many congratulations on reaching this point. But remember this - no matter how many years pass, you will always be a student of LCHS. No matter where you live or what you move on to, you will always be a part of our community.
So all I really have to say is – good luck with your results and take care of yourselves and one another over the summer period.
