On Wednesday 16th December 2015, former students were invited back to Kingsbury High School to attend an Awards Evening.
The evening was made up with a mixture of nostalgia, as alumni looked back at photographs of their time at Kingsbury High School; pride, as they collected their awards; entertainment, as they watched current students perform in a musical interlude; and reunion, as they were reunited with their old classmates.
Awards included Achievement in the Face of Adversity; the Most Outstanding Contribution to the Life of the School; and Outstanding Public Service.
Gopi Vekaria, who left last year and is currently working as an apprentice at the school, won Most Outstanding Contribution to the Life of the School. Speaking about the evening, she said “It was a beautiful and inspirational evening and to be invited was an honour. It was lovely to see so many friends who came back from university and to catch up with them. What made my evening was receiving such a meaningful award and I am touched and humbled by how the staff have regarded my efforts and commitment. It has made me who I am today and I will be forever grateful. Thank you Kingsbury.”
