ST?Mary’s College in Crosby paid tribute to the achievements of its pupils at a prize giving ceremony with a difference this year.
Because of the coronavirus pandemic the normal high-profile event at Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral was replaced by a specially produced video which premiered on the school’s website and YouTube channel.
The pre-recorded event - produced in line with the government’s social distancing guidelines - was hosted by Year 7 pupils Amelia Johnson and Oscar Donnelly and featured a full rundown of all this year’s prizewinners.
There was also a pictorial review of the year by Principal Mike Kennedy and performances by some of St. Mary’s many talented young musicians.
Mr Kennedy said: “Because of the pandemic for the first time in many years we were unable to showcase our pupils’ successes in the spectacular cathedral setting.
“That’s why we opted for a virtual event instead.
“ I am very pleased at how well it has been received and how much positive feedback we have received about the video.”
