Student highlights from 2021

It’s pretty safe to say that it’s been a challenging year with the disruptions of the pandemic across the globe and all the adjustments we have had to make to our normal everyday lives.

But in spite of this, some pretty amazing things have happened for our students and our alumni that are really worth celebrating.

In no particular order we take a look back over some of the successes of the year…
