Congratulations to our Jack Petchey Achievers!

Congratulations to our Jack Petchey Outstanding Achievers, Jessica and Joshua, who were both nominated by Joseph Clarke’s School Council. Joshua received his medal and certificate when attending the evening Award Ceremony at the Assembly Halls in Waltham Forest, on Tuesday 10th November, 2015. Unfortunately Jessica was unable to attend and she is being sent her medal and certificate in the post.

Jessica was nominated for having faced adversity after a long-stay in hospital. Despite having a very difficult time, when she returned to school, she was positive and continued with her studies. She missed playing ball games and used the money donated from the Jack Petchey Foundation to purchase a range of sports equipment for the school.

Joshua had been coping with an extremely difficult situation but he also came to school smiling and trying to help others. He wanted the Jack Petchey Foundation money to buy some benches and large games to be used by pupils in the playground, during break-times and lunch-times.

Thank you to the Jack Petchey Foundation and congratulations to our Outstanding Achievers: Jessica and Joshua!
