Our celebratory evening, ‘Speech Night,’ where we recognise the achievements of 2022/2023, took place at the Citadel, in Sale.
The evening opened with a brilliant performance of ‘I Just Can’t Wait To Be King’ by the Seedling Choir supported by ND, NH and ZW from Year 6. Mr Booth welcomed everyone and spoke about what it actually means to be a ‘Forester’.
A Forester gets involved with all aspects of school life, from sport to academia to swinging on a zip wire at residentials, to dancing the afternoon away at the Coronation Street Party to performing in the very professional End of Year Show and to always choosing kindness. Mr Booth emphasised that ‘school days should be the best days.’
Awards were given in a number of categories including Maths, Phonics, Progress and Endeavour for each year group. As always, a big fuss was made of Year 6, the Class of 2023.They were all recognised individually for their unique contribution to school life. This ranged from Friendship, to Public Speaking, to Artistic Excellence.
The evening closed with full audience participation of the Forest Hymn, ‘Living and Learning.’
All staff, pupils and parents had a lovely evening reminiscing and reflecting on the highlights of the 2022/2023 academic year.
