We attended the GCSE presentation evening at Torpoint Community School on the 14th, as the youngest of the offspring was due to receive her certificates. The photo shows Lizzie, about to be given her certificates, receiving a pen from her former tutor Mr Keane. The GCSE certificates were presented by Amy Cole (who apparently appears on BBC Spotlight, but as we don't have a television, I've never heard of her). Ms Cole is impressively short, even in enormously high heels and gave an entertaining "motivational" speech to the assembled throng.
Lizzie was surprised and delighted to also receive a special award for her overall performance in English.
Proud parent bit over - I'll get back to the normal drivel in the next posting.
