Mr Walsh was delighted to present three worthy winners with Jack Petchey awards this week.
The Jack Petchey Foundation was set up to inspire and motivate young people and recognise them for their achievements.
Youssef (pictured), year 11, won the Jack Petchey award for his calm and thoughtful actions when he came across a member of the public who had fallen and injured themselves. Youssef called an ambulance while some of his friends, who also attend St Philip’s, reassured the person.
Abishna, year 12, has taken it upon herself to make a new member of St Philip’s School feel welcome. When one of our year 9 students first started at St Philip’s, she didn’t know anyone and felt a little shy. Abishna would arrange to meet her every day and walk with her to the bus stop. We have recognised this act of kindness with a Jack Petchey award.
Dean, year 14, had to spend a considerable time away from school recently as he was very poorly. Dean stayed positive throughout this challenging time and joined in with remote lessons every day. This Jack Petchey award acknowledges Dean’s bravery and resilience.
