Gibraltar College held its awards ceremony last week and opened a photo exhibition.
Students enrolled in the Personal and Social Development course opened an exhibition of their photographs at John Mackintosh Hall on Tuesday.
The photos were taken during the Youth Arts Jamboree program run by Gibraltar Cultural Services in association with the Gibraltar Photographic Society and will be on display until the end of the week.
“This was an opportunity to promote the Marigold Project, an experience where students grow marigolds, collect seeds and design PR materials to promote it,” said a college spokesman.
Then on Thursday, Gibraltar College celebrated its 11th awards ceremony at Boyd’s King’s Bastion.
Fourteen students received awards in front of an audience consisting of Minister of Education Dr. John Cortes, joining Education Director Kerri Scott, parents, staff and friends.
“Thanks to the generosity of their sponsors, Trusted Novus Bank, the event was a complete success,” the college said.
