Students should be congratulated for their hard work and dedication; they have been a privilege to teach. The work on display in both the creative and performing arts is first class and a real credit to the College. I am also so proud of our dedicated staff who continue to raise the profile of the Arts amongst our young people, helping them to take risks, reflect, explore and comment on the complex world around them.”
