The Hadlow College community came together for a day of celebrations last week (Thursday 20 June), as it held its annual end of year presentation.

The event took place in the College’s Garden Design Studios and saw family, friends, staff and students basking in the glorious sunshine to acknowledge graduating students.

Dan Cotton, Assistant Principal Land Based Curriculum at Hadlow College, opened proceedings by welcoming students and their families, friends and relatives, before passing over to curriculum staff to start the handing out of certificates. Students received their certificates from Sarah Henwood, who is a Governor at the College.

Sarah then talked to students about her background and what she considers the key attributes for success before Vice Principal of Hadlow College, Chris Lydon, announced a series of special awards for students in recognition of their efforts.

Well done to everyone!
