Harefield Gazette - - NEWS - By Zoe Drewett zoe.drewette@trin­i­tymir­ror.com

STU­DENTS im­pressed a BBC London news pre­sen­ter with their hard work and de­ter­mi­na­tion to suc­ceed at an an­nual prize­giv­ing evening.

Young peo­ple at Ruis­lip High School wel­comed broad­cast jour­nal­ist Alice Bhand­hukravi to the school in Sid­mouth Drive on Tues­day last week.

The school held its fourth pre­sen­ta­tion evening to cel­e­brate the ded­i­ca­tion, hard work and achieve­ments of stu­dents over the past aca­demic year with par­ents, staff, gover­nors and other spe­cial guests.

The BBC news pre­sen­ter, who vis­ited the school once be­fore to re­port on the cre­ation of a First World War trench by stu­dents and staff, de­liv­ered an in­spi­ra­tional speech about her per­sonal jour­ney to be­come a suc­cess­ful jour­nal­ist.

She said: “I was not dis­ap­pointed by my sec­ond visit to Ruis­lip High this year. I was struck by the en­thu­si­asm and ded­i­ca­tion of the stu­dents, and the strong school ethos. It seems like a happy, hard-work­ing com­mu­nity which is right­fully suc­ceed­ing.”

Prizes were awarded to stu­dents from ev­ery year group across the school for ei­ther achieve­ment or ef­fort shown in par­tic­u­lar sub­jects or ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties, as well as per­for­mances show­cas­ing the stu­dents’ act­ing and mu­si­cal tal­ents.
