City College Plymouth recognised the achievements of some of its students at a special ceremony on Thursday 12 December.

Joined by family and friends, the prize winners enjoyed a two-course meal before being presented with their Student of the Term awards. A total of 17 prizes were handed out on the night to a group of deserving students, all of whom have shown outstanding commitment to their work.

At the ceremony, which was held at the College’s PL1 Restaurant, Principal and Chief Executive of City College Plymouth, Jackie Grubb praised the winners for their determination, hard work and commitment, saying that each one of them had something to shout about.

Jackie said: “It is an honour to publically recognise those who have shown such great determination and outstanding qualities in order to succeed. Some of our winners have had to overcome great personal difficulties and barriers to be able to achieve and I hope you will join me in congratulating them.”

The awards honoured students across the full range of courses that the College offers. Those interested in finding out more can do so at the College’s Course Information Drop-in Evening on Wednesday 8 January, 4.30pm to 6.30pm at Kings Road.
