Congratulations to all the prize-winners who attended the College’s annual Prizegiving celebration in November. During a memorable evening, over 100 students received awards, applauded by proud family and friends. Books and trophies were presented in various categories including high performance, excellent attendance, service to the college and to the local community.

 

This year’s special guest was former Wyvern student Lizzie Dearden, who shared the interesting story of her career path to becoming Home Affairs and Security Correspondent at The Independent. She outlined her current role which involves reporting on terrorism, extremism and crime, and her previous post where she specialised in foreign news and had the opportunity to go on one of the ships that rescued refugees and to the desert that many of them crossed in Mali. In addition, she gave students some helpful hints and tips including encouraging them to seek work experience opportunities and emphasising the importance of networking to make useful contacts. She concluded by advising students not to limit themselves, and saying that the secret of success is finding what you like doing, whatever that is, and doing it the best you can.
