28 Harefield Academy students honoured at annual presentation evening.

The Harefield Academy

Despite the poor weather, The Harefield Academy hosted it’s annual presentation evening last night (01/03/2018). 28 students were awarded with a certificate and an award, all being presented by Adrian Mariappa (Watford FC Player & Academy Graduate) and Terry Alderton (comedian, Actor and TV Presenter). Both guests spoke at length about their life experiences and offered their advice to our award winners on ow to deal with life’s ups and downs.

The overall theme for the evening #THAPROUD was reflected in the wide range of students’ work which was on display. Further works on display were named in honour of notable people in history who had a connection to Harefield Village. The evening was a demonstration of just how much pride there is in both the Village and The Academy.
Guests were also treated to music courtesy of Sixth Formers Riya Kapoor, Connor Lowden and Matthew Smith, who also accompanied a beautiful tribute to the three former students Josh McGuinness, Harry Rice and George Wilkinson who passed away recently.
