Jack Petchey Achievement Awards
A massive well done to these students for their incredible attitude, hard work and determination which has paid off in the form of being named recipients of the Jack Petchey Foundation Achievement Award. This prestigious honour is awarded to students to publicly recognise a whole range of fantastic accomplishments. This includes excelling in schoolwork, engaging in fulfilling extra-curricular activities or selflessly helping to improve the lives of others in the community. They were nominated by their peers and leaders, winning awards for a variety of achievements big and small, but always for doing their best.
On Monday 19th March, an incredible 98 young people from schools across Tower Hamlets came together for the annual presentation ceremony (held at Cineworld, West India Quay) to receive their accolades. Each winner was presented with a framed certificate, a Young Achiever medallion and £250 to be spent on a school or community project of their choice.
Students not only impressed the audience with their outstanding achievements, some brave performers also came up on stage to sing and provide entertainment for the evening. The entire event was filled with uplifting music and there was an electric energy in the room from start to finish.
Police Borough Commander, DCS Sue Williams (who presented students with the awards) said: “I am immensely proud of the achievements of the young people of Tower Hamlets. This is one of the most amazing and uplifting events I have had the pleasure of attending. Well done to all the award winners and many thanks to the Jack Petchey Foundation.”
Winners: Tanvir Abdul, Munsur Moni, Fokhruzzaman Wildhan, Ishmam Ahmed, Ahmed Duale, Jame Huynh, Nusrat Rima & Salih Ibn Abdurrahman
