Certificates Evening 2019
Last Tuesday, we welcomed the GCSE & A Level classes of 2018 to our annual Certificates Evening, a wonderful event to celebrate the achievements of all our students in public examinations. Our guest speaker was Channing Alumna, Rebecca Worboys, former Channing head girl and now the youngest economic advisor at the Cabinet Office. Last year’s Year 13 students came back to be presented with their A level certificates and to catch up with their friends’ news of first terms at university, Art College or gap year adventures. Year 12 students provided a wonderful musical interlude before joining their peers to receive their GCSE certificates.
Rebecca (Class of 2007) spoke with real passion about her life experiences over the past twelve years, and expressed her gratitude for the many advantages she felt she had been given by Channing. She and her sister Meriel were also astonished to see the fabulous new facilities, and both said how lucky the current and future generations of Channing girls are to be at the school in 2019. Also accompanying Rebecca were her parents, longtime Channing Association supporters, and not least, 8-month-old Sebastian, Rebecca’s son.
Congratulations to all the classes of 2018 and all the best for the future!
