Event to honour students' achievements

Students at Dudley College were honoured at an annual awards ceremony to celebrate their success.  Over 100 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 that they thought deserved recognition for their special achievements, and students who, through their sheer determination and effort, have reached their goals. Student entertains guests

On arrival over 300 guests were greeted in a marquee where students dressed as 'living tables' were served Caribbean cocktails and canapés.  Invited dignitaries and guests congregated in the courtyard and were entertained by music students and theatre design students before taking their seats. 

The evening started with a vibrant Catwalk Extravaganza from the Fashion & Textile students followed by the presenting of the awards.  After a formal presentation to the prize winners the Musical Theatre students performed an extract from their latest production 'Songs from a New World'.

College Principal, Lowell Williams said: "The ceremony is an overwhelming demonstration of how our students continue to achieve through difficult times and exhibit just some of the outstanding talent we have, right here in Dudley.  The presentation of these awards gives us the opportunity to applaud the outstanding achievements of some of our very best students."
