Today we held our Arts Ties Assembly. An Arts Tie is a prestigious award that is given to Senior students who have been involved in the Arts at the highest level over several years. It is an honour to receive an Arts Tie, and the boys who gain these understand this. The major criteria for recipients is that they have represented the College in events that showcase their talent.
