The G15 Celebration of Success evening was held in Gloucester Cathedral on Thursday 21stJune 2011 and was described by the Lord Lieutenant of Gloucestershire, Dame Janet Trotter, as being ‘A magnificent event! A fabulous way of showcasing the talents of all Gloucester City’s pupils’.

For those of you who have not come across G15 before, it is the partnership of all 12 secondary schools in Gloucester City, Gloucestershire College, the Pupil Referral Service and The Milestone School.

Dame Janet, in the company of the Deputy Mayor and Sheriff of Gloucester, Councillor Pam Tracey and Mrs Sally Morgan, the Mayor and Mayoress of Tewkesbury, Councillor and Mrs David Waters, Lieutenant-Colonel Simon Butt of Imjin Barracks, the Dean of Gloucester Cathedral, The Reverend Canon Stephen Lake and many representatives from organisations in the City of Gloucester, presented awards to many young people for their sporting prowess or for their outstanding commitment to their community whether local, national or global. The audience of proud family members was also treated to a variety of performances from the participating schools.

A number of students from across the year groups at Millbrook Academy performed ‘You Can’t Stop the Beat’ (a hit from Hairspray) and ‘Do you hear the people sing?’ (taken from Les Miserables). They appeared very confident and their charisma and enthusiasm for Performing Arts really shone through!

    

 

Jenny Cameron, Head of Performing Arts, said “I was incredibly proud of the Millbrook students, who took performing in a huge space in front of a very large audience in their stride. Their lively performance received lots of praise from audience members. It was also fantastic to perform in the finale with students from other schools, and they should all be commended for their commitment and energy.”

A retiring collection was taken for the Royal British Legion. G15 has pledged to contribute to Gloucestershire’s ambition to raise £90,000 for the Royal British Legion in their 90th anniversary year – 90K4BL/2011.
