We were delighted to be introducing the next cohort of Nexus students last night at our annual welcome evening. We are very proud of our close relationship with our students and their families, so when 21 future Nexus students arrived to receive their new Nexus badges it was exciting to see the Nexus family growing.
The welcome event began with drinks and nibbles before Mr Ian Kenworthy, the Headteacher at Camborne Science and International Academy, began the formal part of the evening congratulating the students on their successful application to the Gifted STEM Programme and told them that the coming year was going to be very exciting for them.
Dr Foster took over to introduce the Nexus ethos and explained the role that Nexus and the Gifted STEM programme play at CSIA. The students who are joining the Gifted STEM Programme will be presented with a huge array of opportunities and Dr Foster stressed the importance of rising to the challenge of being the best they can be. Other key members of Nexus and CSIA staff were introduced and explained a bit about their roles.
The highlight of the evening came with the presentations. Each student received a personalised certificate congratulating them on their success and also received their Nexus badge which will be worn on their uniform next year.
The final part of the evening came as current Nexus students gave tours of the Lower School building, where the Key Stage 3 programme operates. We look forward to seeing the new students in September and welcoming their parents back to Nexus for the Christmas Exhibition Evening in December.
