Evening of Celebration
We were delighted to hold our Evening of Celebration on 22 June 2023 providing the opportunity to recognise and celebrate our wonderful students’ achievements this year.
It was a fantastic evening with a welcome and introduction from Mrs Crampton, CTK St Mary’s Principal, followed by a talk from one of our alumni, Seni Fawehinmi who attended CTK Emmanuel in 2008-2010 studying Business and Travel and Tourism. He has since been involved with Metric Capital Partnership and continues to support their work with CTK.
The Guest speaker was John Sinik, Managing Partner of Metric Capital Partners, who has been working with CTK over several years in many different ways, including offering scholarships to some of our most deserving students. The scholarships have provided financial support to help them through their higher education studies. John himself received similar support when he was a student and is very keen to give other young people the same opportunity. John talked about his experience of setting up the scholarships and the effect it has had on both him and the students involved, after which he was kind enough to present the awards. His advice to guests was, “Be bold, the world is changing, find something you love and run through walls to make it happen!”
As guests arrived they were welcomed by one of our talented students, Sudhirsing, playing the piano which was a beautiful way to commence the celebrations.
After the awards had been presented and to close the formal proceedings guests were served refreshments and had the chance to meet speakers, staff and students.
It was a wonderful evening providing the opportunity to celebrate our fantastic students and their achievements.
