Celebration Event to Honour Students’ Achievements
Students at Dudley College were honoured at the annual Celebrating Success Awards event on Thursday 14 June. Nominated students picked up awards for their hard work and determination over the academic year and celebrated with their family, friends and tutors at a glittering ceremony held at the Broadway campus.
Tutors at Dudley College were asked to nominate students who they thought deserved recognition for their special achievements, and students who, through their sheer determination and effort, have reached their goals.
Over 300 guests were greeted in a marquee where students dressed as 'living tables' and 'Candy Dandy' hosts served 'Food from around the World', cocktails and canapés. There were also two special golden characters present, who were commissioned by the Olympic Committee for the launch of the Olympic torch at Lands End in May. Invited dignitaries and guests were entertained by music students and theatre design students before they took their seats.
The evening began with a vibrant Catwalk Extravaganza from Fashion & Textile students followed by the presentation of the awards. After the formal presentation to prize winners Musical Theatre students performed excerpts from their latest production 'Thoroughly Modern Millie'.
College Principal, Lowell Williams said before the event, "The ceremony is a fabulous annual event which showcases our students' talents and diversity. Every year this event demonstrates how remarkable our students' achievements are, it also highlights the outstanding ability and skills we have right here in Dudley. The presentation of these awards will give us the opportunity to recognise the exceptional achievements of our very best students."
