Last Friday, 2nd December 2022, Ashton School held its annual Prize Day Ceremony, which recognises students for their academic and extra-curricular achievements. During the ceremony Principal Adrian Landen also reported on the highlights and activities of the school year. After the Prize Day Ceremony, Bishop Paul Colton was awarded with the Ashton School Hall of Fame Award in recognition of his achievements as Bishop, Scholar, and Citizen.
In his speech Bishop Paul said:
I want to thank everyone in the school community who nominated me for today’s award, and the Board of Management for granting me this immense honour. I am truly pleased by it. Looking at friends of my school year, some here today, who said nice things about this award on social media, reminded me of what a great group of people you all are, and of how so many of my Ashton contemporaries have done wonderful things and made a real difference to their communities and to people around them in countless ways; so I feel humbled.
