Learners, parents, staff and partners of Portland College came together on Wednesday 4th for the 2018 Awards Ceremony, presented by Principal Mark Dale and Phil Constantine from Atmospheric Interiors. Twelve learners were presented with sponsored awards of specialist categories ranging from the Mansfield 103.2 Award for Student Voice…swept up by Ryan McDade, to the County Battery Award for Employability - won by Davey Bentley. Winner of the Mansfield HARTS Shield for Performing Arts, Hamish Pearson, performed a heart-warming rendition of Robbie Williams, Angels that saw the audience joining in and waving their hands along with Hamish.
The morning was a huge success and a fantastic opportunity to showcase the great achievements of our learners. Mark Dale also took the opportunity to welcome and thank all of our partners, such as Mansfield Building Society, and The Mansfield and Ashfield Chad. The day was also broadcast live by radio station Mansfield 106, who dedicated a special track to the staff and learners of Portland College.
Thank you to everyone who helped to make the ceremony such a memorable day for all involved.
