This moment is just one big part of a bigger part of your life and if you keep dreaming big: keep taking those big bold steps,( what I call Apollo thinking )and not pay attention to those doubters, then I am confident you will go on to do incredible things. So wherever your future takes you, let it take you somewhere where you simply have to trust the process. Life is a journey and all the accomplishments we achieve during its course should be taken as the launching point for further success. I would like to give you two pieces of advice: Do what you love and be a lifelong learner.

It is the culmination of any high student's life: Graduation ceremony. On June 24, 2021, The Sheffield Private School celebrated Graduation Ceremony for the Class of 2021. A total of 23 graduates participated in the ceremony, celebrating their academic and non -academic achievements throughout the year. The event was hosted by two Year 12 students, Akshita and Mehara. The ceremony began in style, with a procession in the venue by the proud graduates, looking distinguished and smart in their graduation robes and caps.

In his address to the graduates, the Principal, Mr James Batts, encouraged the graduates to go out into the world with optimism and confidence. The ceremony was attended by special guests, Mr Roger Hancock and Mr Mohamed Binkaram.

We are pleased to announce the two members of the Class of 2021 who have been named the year's "Valedictorian" and "Student of Honour". Each of these students has devoted long hours, hard work and dedication to their studies at TSPS and rightly deserve this time-honoured recognition. Both are exemplary students and citizens and have also been involved in numerous community services and in-school activities at TSPS.
