On Wednesday 27th June our year 9 students were invited to a surprise graduation ceremony to congratulate their transition from KS3 to KS4.
After walking the red carpet they received flutes of fizzy elderflower cordial as a treat and were presented with certificates to acknowledge the hard work and progress that they had made over the past three years at Ark Elvin Academy.
Our year groups Valedictorian, Mamadou Diallo also gave a speech to his cohort praising their journey so far and encouraging them to remain focused and determined moving forward into year 10.
The assembly ended with video clips from a few familiar faces, past and present staff who wanted to send in their congratulations and well wishes to students. The graduation ceremony was a lovely way to end their time as KS3 students and an occasion that will hopefully become Ark Elvin tradition.
