Last night, at a presentation evening held at Telford College, three Sixth Form Students received the High Sheriffs Award for their outstanding display of good citizenship.

The recipients were Elizabeth Evans, Chris Johnson and Nicholas West. All three students have been supporting individual younger pupils as part of their voluntary contribution within the Support for Learning Department. During the presentation evening they all had the opportunity to speak to the High Sheriff, Anna Turner about their volunteering and fund raising efforts.

Whilst studying for their A levels and supporting younger pupils at the School, Elizabeth has done much fundraising for the Schools nominated African charity, Monduli Green and Chris has coached hockey to Lower School pupils.  Also, whilst studying for the International Baccalaureate Nick West has been volunteering in his local Oxfam shop.

 It was Ros McCarthy, the teacher who runs the Duke of Edinburgh programme at the School, who originally nominated Elizabeth, Chris and Nicholas for the Young Citizens Award. She commented, All three students are stalwart senior members of the School and have for many years patiently supported individual pupils, giving them additional support for learning, listening to them reading and helping with prep. I was delighted to give them the opportunity for this external recognition of their good citizenship.
