Prize Giving celebrations

Scarborough College’s annual Prize Giving event held recently at the Methodist Central Hall was attended by guest of honour and speaker Dee Caffari MBE.  Dee holds a number of sailing world records being the only woman to have sailed single-handedly around the globe three times, in addition to being one of only four people in history (and the only woman) to have sailed the ‘wrong way’ around the world – that is, against the prevailing winds and currents.  She also led an all-female crew to a first ever leg victory in the recent Volvo Ocean Race.  Headmaster Charles Ellison commented, “Dee’s speech was truly inspiring for all of us who were lucky enough to be there to hear it.  Her mantra of ‘We can do more than we think; we just have to dare to dream’ resonated with everyone, pupils, parents and staff alike.  Our leavers, having gained superb GCSE and IB Diploma results with us, are well-placed to follow their dreams as they enter their exciting new worlds beyond the College and we look forward to learning of, and celebrating, many more of their undoubted successes in the years to come.”
