MORE than 100 pupils have been commended for their hard work at an annual prizegiving evening.

Students from Priory School in Southsea gathered at the Royal Maritime Club in Queen Street.

There were drama performances, dance demonstrations and music. Dr Joy Watts from the University of Portsmouth and the Lord Mayor Steven Wylie were invited.

Dr Watts gave a talk on her work as a microbiologist and how her career has taken her around the world, including working on cocoa plants in Trinidad.

Headteacher James Humphries said it was a good night.

‘We are tremendously proud of all of our pupils at Priory School and it is wonderful to celebrate with families and staff.’
