    West Hatch students recognised with Jack Petchey Foundation awards

    West Hatch is proud to be part of the Jack Petchey Foundation Gold Award scheme.

    Nine students in each academic year are nominated by their peers and staff to each receive £200 which they can elect to spend on an aspect of school life to benefit the greatest number of students.

    Winners Warren Smith, Georgia Norman, Georgia Bird, Hannah Brandon, Deanna Mathers, Rhys Maslen, Gabriel Connolly, Nataskia Lopez Dias and Ella Reeves joined other young people in a night of celebration at James Hawkey Hall, Woodford Green.

    They received their awards from Essex Police District Commander Chief Inspector Denise Morrissey.

    Mrs Julie Smith, mother of Warren Smith - the school's September winner - said: "What a wonderful, positive evening - full of confidence and amazing young people."

    The West Hatch High School Leaders' Award was presented to Geoff Towsey for his work in careers, encouraging students into Higher Education and his behind the scenes support for Heads of House.

    Caroline Haines, West Hatch High School's Jack Petchey co-ordinator, said: "The motto of Jack Petchey - to inspire, motivate and achieve - is what we aim to do every day in our school community at West Hatch. The awards scheme reinforces this."
