Jack Petchey Award WinnersPosted on: 09/12/2020
The King Edmund School is celebrating the latest Jack Petchey Award winners. Three students have been chosen from the nominees this term:
Nathan, Year 10, found transition to secondary school challenging, but with the help of school staff, his family and in particular, his own determination and resilience he has grown in confidence and gone from strength to strength academically and socially.
He has become a Mental Health Ambassador at KES and is using his experiences to help others in similar situations.
Jonathan, also in Year 10 is another student who applied and succeeded in becoming a Mental Health Ambassador. He has shown great determination in overcoming his ASD and is knowledgeable and open about this topic, always helping others who may be finding ASD a challenge.
As someone who is working hard to give back to the KES community, he fully deserves the Jack Petchey Award.
Always positive, Lillie in Year 8 has never allowed her visual impairment to prevent her from achieving her best and takes every challenge in her stride. Her teachers at KES have commented on her inner strength, her work ethic and positive attitude. She is an excellent role model and example to everyone.
Congratulations to all of our winners.
