Year 7, 8 and 9 prizegiving
We welcomed new governor and Sydenham High alumnae, Margaret Ambrose, as guest speaker this year. She presented awards to students for academic excellence and the Crysanthemum cup for all-round achievement. Three girls also received the new Diamond award, introduced to mark the Queen’s Jubilee year. It was awarded by each Head of Year for contribution to school life.
After the ceremony, parents and students enjoyed a showcase of students work in the Lecture Theatre followed by a celebration tea and tennis on the lawn. A huge cake to celebrate the school’s 125th anniversary was decorated and then devoured by students!
