THE achievements of PMGHS GCSE pupils were celebrated last week at our annual awards event. The ceremony was held at the Royal Banqueting
Suite in front of over 300 invited guests.
The GCSE certificates and subject awards were presented by two ex-pupils, Dr Alina Hashmi and Dr Fauzia Suleman. Since qualifying as doctors they have now returned to Preston and are currently at The Royal Preston Hospital. They reflected on their time at the school and how the school has gone from strength to strength, and how they have seen great improvements in its facilities and a great increase in the number of pupils in
the school. They spoke directly to our pupils inspiring them to aim high and to work hard and to set their sights on what they want to achieve in the future.
The Special Awards were presented by Mark Hendrick MP and Mufti Javid, Headteacher. Mark Hendrick has been a friend to the school for many years and has closely followed its progress. He warmly congratulated the school on its recent successes and said how pleased he was to have been asked to present the trophies at this year’s ceremony.
All pupils came on stage to receive their GCSE certificates and then the Heads of Faculty gave out awards to recognise individual performance in each subject.
The evening culminated with the presentation of five special awards. The Highest Attainment Award was given to Maryam Patel, the school’s highest ever achiever, with all 12 of her GCSEs at grade A*. The Contribution to the School
Award was given to Tehreem Haq, for her outstanding role as Head Girl during the year. The Most Improved Award went to Maariyah Master and the Endeavour Award, given to those who have overcome adversity or difficulty to achieve was awarded to Kulthoom Mangera. The final award, The Headtecher’s Award, was given to two pupils Fatimah Zahra Patel and Nusaibah Batan for their outstanding work as Deputy Head Girl and Senior Prefect during the year.
The other highlight of the evening was the nasheed choir who performed with confidence for the assembled group.
Well done to them all and to all of our staff, parents and pupils.
