Hayling College Prize Evening May 17th

May 18, 2012

This evening Elaine & I attended the prize giving evening at Hayling College. We were welcomed by the Head Girl and then entertained by singing by 6 of the pupils before the prizes were awarded.
The College is divided into 4 Houses, Illustrious, Invincible, Victorious and Vigilant and the guest speaker was Captain Martin Connell, RN, the Captain of HMS Illustrious. He brought with him the Ship’s Bell from the World War II aircraft carrier of the same name. The bell shows the damage caused when the ship was attacked on her way to Malta on January 10th, 1941.

All those present were then invited to an excellent buffet which was prepared in-house.
