Derwen College celebrated the amazing achievements of students at a recent Graduation Ceremony.
The ceremony saw 47 students graduating with more than 200 guests, VIPs and governors attending the ceremony which took place at Lion Quays, near Oswestry.
Principal Meryl Green said it was a wonderful day where she felt proud of all our 2019 leavers.
“We were delighted Oswestry Mayor Cllr John Price joined us at the ceremony along with so many parents, friends and families of the students. We are so proud of the achievements of our students, and this celebration provides an opportunity to showcase their amazing journey. Their time at college has seen them progress in their work skills, independence skills, taking part in national sports and vocational competitions and initiatives such as Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards. They continue to inspire us all,” she said.
Former students who left the college in July this year returned from across the whole country to be at the event, returning with updates on where they are working, volunteering and some living in supported living. During the ceremony there were also 14 trophies awarded in various categories to celebrate outstanding achievements in different areas of work, independence and sport.
