It was another night of celebration for Falmouth School students at this year’s Summer Commendation Evening. Students in years 7, 8, 9, 10 and Falmouth College were recognised for a term of hard work in the five faculty areas of: Communications, STEM, Humanities, Performance and College. There was also the much-anticipated Student of the Year and the Significant Contribution awards.
In each category students received awards for either superb attainment throughout the term, or an excellent ‘Ready to Learn’ score, with awards handed out to Lower (years 7 and 8) and Upper School (years 9 and 10) students. In the first category of the evening the winners for attainment in Communications were: Lauren Davis, Matthew Thomas, Katie Etchells, Callum Stephens.
