“Each and every student should feel a great sense of pride in their contribution this season.
“We are sincerely grateful to college staff, volunteers, parents and relatives who have supported us in practical ways and from the sidelines.
“One of the biggest pleasures of this job is knowing that wherever we travel or whoever we entertain the conduct and professionalism of West Suffolk College students remains as high as it has ever been.
“Trophies and accolades are something to savour but the compliments from outsiders, who regularly comment on our students' behaviour and conduct, put the icing on the cake.”
