The awards ceremony is the most important part of the year and a closely guarded secret.
The title Victor Ludorum literally means "the winner of the games. " in latin, but at Millbank the title is award to the most outstanding pupil academically and socially too, the female version is the Victrix Ludorum. Because of the very high standards at Millbank they are not always awarded each year but it is testimony to just how nice the children are that we felt that we needed to award distinction certificates too, as there were so many lovely pupils.
In a similar fashion many of the children could have won the Nicola Howell's Cup awarded to the most caring pupil because there are so many nice children in this year. But a well done to the winner.
Many parents still recall Mr Thorn -the head teacher before Miss Allen joined us- with great affection. He was at the school a long time before he became head and left funds for the most improved award. Given to the pupil who has worked extra hard and shown improvement.
