I would also like to acknowledge the boys who are working hard to raise their grades in different subjects or across the board. Whether that be raising a D grade to a C, or a C to a B. Or improving your Diploma Grades it is all important and a credit to the time and effort you are putting in. The improvements you are making worth striving for and you should be proud of them.
