Jack Petchey Award
The Jack Petchey Achievement Award recognises and rewards achievements of pupils aged 11 – 19. Students are nominated by their peers, staff members, parents and friends of the school for something they have worked exceptionally hard at or something really positive they have done for others.
An award winner is selected each month by the Jack Petchey Co – ordinator for the school Michael Sinanan. The winner receives a certificate and money to spend on a school project, resources for their classroom or a school club etc. The school council may also be involved by drawing up a list of suggestions for ways the money may be spent in school.
Spring Term Winners are Conor Flynn and Joshua Pocock.
Connor is an outstanding role model through his polite, co-operative and helpful behaviour; an example to both older and younger students, and is often able to help in a difficult situation with his honesty and mature attitude.
Joshua was nominated by students and staff on the performing arts residential school journey for the outstand effort he made throughout the week to care for and support the other students. He was an excellent role model.
Joshua is taking his class out on a trip later in the year and is also going to buy something special for school.
