Galileo House Star
Thursday 9 May 2013
Our recent Galileo House celebration assembly was the usual fantastic event we are becoming accustomed to. Students won tons of awards for their achievements and we lost count of the number of stars that were handed out. Special recognition was given to outstanding Year 9 student, Jermaine Wilson (pictured above with Mrs Langley-Sadler), who was nominated by staff and his peers for his contribution to Form Time activities and the Academy Action Group. Watch out for Jermaine in the future, he is aiming to be Prime Minister one day!
