Christmas Awards Ceremony 2004
The Sixth Form Awards are given out each Christmas as part of the festive celebrations. Unlike the other awards that are given at the end of each term and at the end of year, these awards do not recognise the hard work, effort and achievement of the students. Categories such as “Best Hair” and “Hottest Girl” are eagerly fought over, while people pray not to get less encouraging awards such as “Too Posh To Wash” and “Most Likely To Appear On Crime-watch”. The awards are decided by the Sixth Form, and generally represent a consensus view, although some rigging may have taken place.
The 2004 Awards took place in a venue chosen because it represented the value of the awards themselves. That is, the school canteen. Everyone was handed crackers and party poppers, which lasted about 5 minutes before they were all pulled; the exciting prizes inside (jigsaws, clackers etc) were swapped and the ‘jokes’ cracked. With everyone dressed in suitable festive gear (paper hats), the awards could be presented.
