It wasan evening to be so proud of the ‘class of 2012’and their individuality and diversity that hascontributed so positively to enriching the life ofour school community.Always an emotional evening, it wasparticularly so this year with the first presentationof a new Annual Memorial Award – The KwameOfosu-Asare Award for Endeavour in Drama, inmemory of our Year 12 student so tragicallykilled recently. The award was presented toOrlando Spence by Kwame’s father, after whichMr Ofosu-Asare received a standing ovation fromall those present, respectful of the amazinghumility, dignity and strength of character heshows in dealing with such a tragic loss.The KS3 Achievement Evening was also athoroughly enjoyable event with many recipientsof well-deserved awards. A particular mentionmust be given to the Year 7 Football squad, whohave won the English Schools’ NationalCompetition, upholding our strong tradition ofsporting success and excellence.The end of the academic year will be tingedwith some sadness as we sayINSIDE2 Year 11 Graduation 2012 | Kwame Ofuso-Asare Awardgoodbye to a number of long-standing colleagueswho have made the difficult decision to retire aftermany years of dedicated service to Forest HillSchool.Chris Matthews (SFH6 Leader) retires after 38years at Forest Hill!
