Pembrokeshire College last week celebrated the glowing achievements of students studying on technology related courses in its annual awards ceremonies.
Attended by students, their families, College staff and award sponsors, a total of 28 awards were given out to students who have excelled in their studies, showing exceptional motivation and effort.
College Principal, Sharron Lusher, opened the awards and commented: “It is a real privilege for me to be here tonight to celebrate your achievements with you, you should all be very proud of what you have accomplished. Our role is to ensure that learners leave the College with the skills needed by employers. Matching skill demand with skill supply is key to the success of the College.”
Sharron continued: “Our students have shown endeavour, enthusiasm and hard work, all qualities that employers are looking for you should all be extremely proud of your achievements.”
For the engineering awards, Martin Rees from Bluebird Speed Records was the guest speaker continuing the theme of ‘speed’ that has been incorporated into the annual awards. Martin congratulated the students on their achievements and commented: “The quality of the students that come out of Pembrokeshire College is extremely high and I hope that in the future some of you will go on to be involved in the Bluebird project. We are extremely proud to bring this venture to Pembrokeshire, what you see us developing today; you might be driving in the next ten years.”
Andrew Phillips from Carreg Construction was guest speaker for the construction awards and commented: “In today's tough climate it is imperative to improve and work hard in order to succeed. These awards show that you are all on the path to success”
Kaycee Blake picked up the award for most improved student of the year and commented: “I started college on the army prep course but decided to swap to brickwork. My dad thinks I’m a tomboy, so it wasn’t a shock to my parents when I enrolled. I’m loving the course and I’m proud of my achievements so far. I’m hoping to progress to levels two and three and would someday like to build my own house!”
