Jack Petchey Awards Ceremony
On Thursday 11th July our three Jack Petchey Award winners received their awards in the Southwark ceremony in Westminster. It was such a pleasure to see these wonderful students, along with those from the other schools, receive their awards. Their parents/family members who came were bursting with pride!
Moustapha is a member of the Academy Orchestra, Jazz Band and Chamber Choir. His commitment to his musical studies is outstanding! He recently supported with the Peckham Songfest, where he visited 6 local Primary schools to teach the students the songs and improve their singing. He was excellent with the primary students and indeed, this extends to the support that he shows all students in helping them to improve and progress. He is genuinely one of the most naturally talent musicians I have met and is integral to the success of music making in Peckham!
Evida is a highly motivated individual who was instrumental in organising the year 11 prom. She formed the prom committee, delegated roles to other students, and motivated her peers to reach their goal. She did this alongside preparing for her GCSE examinations.
Luna is an outstanding young footballer. She has been an inspirational member of our Football Beyond Borders group and has helped to lead and guide other members of the group in a positive way. They have just finished interviewing famous inspirational role models and have published a magazine called, “The Women who Changed the Game.” She is a very talented footballer and plays to a high level in and outside of the Academy. Luna has had a real impact in terms of breaking down stereotypes towards females in sport.
