A Year of Glittering Success for English Department

2020-2021 was certainly a different kind of school year as many extracurricular activities have had to be suspended or cancelled; at an all-boys’ school, this was disappointing to our boys to say the least, given how active they are and can be.

That said, our boys certainly did not simply kick back and chill out for the year.

Through sheer willpower and tenacity, they participated in various English Department events and competitions that still remained open and pushed hard to meet respective competition organizers’ submission and performance requirements, all the while keeping their health in check at school and in the community.

As the school year draws to a close, we came together as a community to take the time to personally acknowledge our students for their hard work, dedication and perseverance. Despite the trying circumstances, they still victoriously came home with various certificates and awards for:
