Mrs Derrick meets The Duke of Edinburgh
Mrs Derrick was delighted this week to receive a commemoration photograph of her visit to St James's Palace, London on 13 October, when she met HRH The Duke of Edinburgh at the Duke of Edinburgh's Gold Award Presentation. Invicta student; Morgan Walby, also attended along with a number of young people across the region, to receive their Certificates. It was a lovely celebration for such a well deserved award. HRH The Duke of Edinburgh was very charming, asking Mrs Derrick about Invicta's achievements for the Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards, as we have been recognised as one of the centres with the highest number of students participating in the Award. He praised the school for such commitment, and complemented our staff for the hours they work in order to support our students. Comments like this in front of the whole ceremony naturally filled Mrs Derrick with pride! It was a day to remember! Well done Morgan - all that teamwork, problem solving, and effort was worth it!
Invicta would also like to thank Mrs Smart, our Duke of Edinburgh Co-ordinator and her team for the hard work they put into supporting students achieve such fantastic results
