Students praised at CedarBridge ceremony

More than 100 students have been celebrated at CedarBridge Academy's prize-giving ceremony.

The event, at Ruth Seaton James Auditorium, recognised youngsters in S2, S3 and S4 for their efforts, including earning grades of A or B on international exams in science, art, music, drama, English, French and Spanish.

Several students were praised for leading CedarBridge in championship titles for various sports, including volleyball, football (girls and boys), junior varsity basketball, track and field, relay, badminton and rugby.

The school also has several youngsters in S2, S3 and S4 who are dual-enrolment students, who study full-time at Bermuda College. Speaking at the event was former student Vanessa Paulos, who graduated from the school in 2007 and is now an accountant.

“I can't believe it has been seven years since I graduated from CedarBridge Academy,” she told the students. “I sat in those exact same seats thinking I had all the time in the world to do all the things I wanted to do in life.

“How you react to what you are faced with determines what kind of outcome the rest of your journey through life will be like.”

She also told students that it was important to identify and face your fears.

“Surround yourself with people who can encourage and support you when you begin to doubt your abilities,” she said.
