This month was Hillcroft College’s Student Celebration and Achievement Day. It was a special day in many ways. First and foremost, it was a chance to recognise the effort and success of all our students.

This year we were pleased to award many students LRC certificates for completing and participating in reading groups and challenges. 4 students completed the Reading Ahead challenge, having read 6 books or other items. 23 students attended one or more reading groups. We appreciate finding time to work on skills and interests outside of class time is difficult. We hope you enjoyed the extra support with digital and reading skills. Well done!

It was also the official occasion when the LRC unveiled its new name and dedicated plaque to a former student. More details to follow soon.
