The Hackney Sports Awards 2016 took place at Hackney Empire on Wednesday 8 February 2017. This ceremony is a highlight of the sporting calendar in Hackney and it acknowledges the participation and achievement of individuals and teams at all levels of competition. Among many guests from across the borough the event was attended by Mr Hajdrych and a selection of students from Stormont House School that took part in London Youth Games 2016:

The London Youth Games Boccia team, Boys Football team and the Swimming team from Hackney were nominated for the Inclusion Award which is sponsored by ‘Better’. The award recognises an individual or an organisation that has made significant achievements in disability sports provision. The Swimming team were selected as the winners of this Award, Mr Hajdrych collected the award on behalf of the team members from Stormont House who were unable to attend the event. Well done to our swimmers Joe S and former student Kane for winning this Award.
During the event the guests had a chance to meet Asha Philip who competed in the Rio Olympics in 2016, winning a bronze medal in the 4 x 100m relay. The ceremony was compered by Kat B who is a comedian working for MTV and Choice FM. The ceremony was a huge success and Mr Hajdrych was very pleased to be attending the event with some of the athletes who had done so well in the 2016 competitions.
Mr Hajdrych has high hopes for the 2017 London Youth Games competition, many of our students will have the opportunity to compete over the coming months and represent our school and Hackney Borough in the biggest sporting event of its kind in the world.
