'Fight for what is right and challenge injustice'
THE talents and achievements of students at De Aston School were celebrated at the annual awards evening.
Students and parents packed the hall for the event, which also proved a welcome reunion for those who left the school in July and are now preparing to depart for university or work.
Head teacher Ellenor Beighton told them that although they will always be De Aston students, it was time for them to take their place in the world.
She said: "The future is literally yours to make. What an excitingly terrifying possibility.

"Young people have a heightened sense of injustice on which the world depends.
"As parents and teachers, this can be infuriating, as young people constantly challenge us. Yet the future of our world depends on young people and their ability to question the way the world is, for it is a world that is far from perfect."
She said that De Aston was very proud of what these young people have already done to challenge unfairness, through their support of a wide range of charities, citizenship campaigns and their evident care of each other.
She added this had been a key part of their wider education while at De Aston, and that it said as much about the school as the record breaking results achieved this year.
Mrs Beighton said: "As you progress at De Aston or move on from De Aston, hone your sense of injustice, increasingly turn outwards to a world that so desperately needs it.
"Use the qualifications you have gained, and will gain, to move that sense of injustice from the ordinary to the extraordinary.
"Strive to see the big picture and to influence it. Fight for what is right, wherever you find yourself and whatever you find yourself doing."
