Jack Petchey Success

23rd October 2015

Two of our Stormont House School pupils have been awarded the Jack Petchey Award from their out of school provision at Centre 404. They both attended the Islington Regional (Clubs / Youth Organisations) award ceremony at the Camden Centre, Kings Cross on Wednesday 14 October. Jordan attended the ceremony with his mum, dad and sister who were all extremely proud of his achievements.

Jordan received the award for making a difference to the centre, being a leader, being kind and improving his relationships with others. Jordan has been contributing to a group at the centre called ‘Aiming High’, being part of the group has helped Jordan’s confidence to work with others. He feels that it has given him the ability to help others and be able to support other members  to get the most out of the group.

Victoria attended the ceremony with her mum, she  was incredibly proud of her daughter’s achievement.  Victoria has previously won the Jack Petchey Award at school.

Victoria was chosen for the award by the Social Media group volunteers, she had been put forward by one of her peers in the youth group that she attends. The reasons for her nomination were:

 

“Victoria is always happy to try new activities at Youth Group. She tries everything without worrying about whether she will be good at it or not. She's always happy, energetic and enthusiastic.” Victoria decided she would like to spend her £200 on sports equipment for the Centre and a party for her group, including food, party games and prizes.
