    As the school year is coming to an end (although most of us have already been off for a couple of weeks now) I was wondering whether anyone's school had had an awards evening and whether anyone had won anything?

    I've just been back from my school's awards evening because a was nominated for the "Oliver Tailor" Award, an award to remember a form student who raised lots of money for charity and sadly passed away. 21 people were nominated and the winner got £250! I didn't win though .

    Oh well, at least I got a certificate.

    Yep, well, I'm Tennis City Champion at present, I went through the season unbeaten. Was chuffed. I played in a squad with three other girls, so we won the school's "Best Sporting Team" award for the year. That was quite fun.

    Erm, but we haven't got our upper school awards evening until next year, in the sixth form. However, I did win the coveted award of "Funniest Girl" in my year (voted for by the school year group itself), that was quite fun. (To be published in the Year Book!) And I came second for the "Cleverest Girl" and third (or second can't remember) for the "Sportiest Girl" award.

    Our awards evening is sometime in the new school year, when we're in year 12. I doubt I'll have been nominated for anything though.

    We had a "presentation ceremony" in the December after our GCSEs and I won a Humanities award. There's also one in December this year for me for A-level awards. Doubt I'll get anything this time! I got a couple of AS prizes, but they are more minor lol.

    At our GCSE awards day there was one girl that won so many that she just kept circling the stage (up the steps on the right, down the steps on the left, round the front of the stage and back) and at one point had so many that someone had to help her carry them.

    It looks like a lot of you are having your awards evening in the new school year then but well done to everyone who won something. I was suprised of the amount of people that didn't turn up to mine. Everyone who got a design award this year were absent and so were some of the people that had a chance of winning £250!


    (PS - Thanks to whoever gave me positive reputation for this thread, even if I have no idea what giraffes have to do with it .)

    Ah yes! The awards ceremony!

    We had that on leavers day.

    I got 2 awards (pieces of paper). 1 for 100% attendance (woo), and another for "doing well" in a list of subjects.

    Last year I got an award for art (a subject I don't even do).

    There was 1 cash prize, and that was given to a chav.
    Errrr sorry, I mean "the person whose behaviour has improved the most over the year".

    Great.
