The 2008 Awards Ceremony took place on the 7th November in The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. This is always a good night, we are immensely proud of our students and their achievements and the Graphics staff always turn out in force to clap like mad when the students walk up on stage to receive their awards. After the formal ceremony is over it's always lovely to catch up with ex students and their families, hear all their news about new jobs and all the interesting things they have been getting up to since leaving college in June. This year we were all in very high spirits for some reason, it may have been a sugar overload from the wonderful cakes served at the buffet (more of them later...) or maybe we were all just happy to be together celebrating our students' success on a rainy Friday evening! Whatever the reason, we all had a fantastic evening cheering on the 16 Advanced Diploma, 29 HND and 2 HNC Graphic students who all graduated looking resplendent in their gowns.
Some of the pictures taken on the night:
And of course the staff were on stage excitedly reading the Awards Ceremony Booklet:
But there's always one...
And afterwards we met up with Eddie who joined us to say well done to the students. What dedication to retire then make the effort to attend the Awards ceremony for the last two years! Didn't I tell you we were an amazing staff!
The College kindly provide a buffet for staff attending the awards ceremony...we do need 'our tea' if we are going to expend so much energy on the clapping after all... but look at the wonderful cakes they provided!!
A few more of the staff after sugar overload...
And finally...another photograph of Eddie with two of the Advanced Diploma students...just because he is a fabulous guy and we all miss him being part of our team!
