It is with great pleasure that we can announce that the prizes for January, February and March can be awarded this month. Having checked with the Jack Petchey Foundation, only one student per month can receive an award and as three students were involved in a charitable act, they have to be awarded a month each. The Jack Petchey Foundation is happy for this to happen.
Chris Doré, Sam’s father, came to school to collect the cash and said how Sam and the family were delighted the boys had done this on his behalf. The family donated the money between the Teenage Cancer Trust and the CLIC Sargent charities, so that further cancer research can be supported.
We would like to thank Billy, Charlie and Lewis for their act of kindness and generosity of spirit. The Jack Petchey Achievement Award is given to any student who achieves something significant for either themself or others. There are many students who would deserve to receive this prestigious Award, so please make your nominations using the form at the back of the newsletter.
