Jack Petchey Achievement Awards 2013
The Jack Petchey Foundation Achievement Awards 2013 were recently held at the Civic Hall in Grays.
Nominated students from Thurrock schools were rewarded at the event, including The Gateway Academy. Students past and present, along with Librarian Mrs Pat Maher, received their much-deserved Jack Petchey awards from The Mayor of Thurrock, Cllr Yash Gupta MBE.
The students were fantastic and Year 8 student, JJ Rogers, despite being ill took to the stage and performed with his guitar a brilliant rendition of Ed Sheeran’s Drunk.
The evening epitomised all that it is outstanding about the Academy; a truly heart-warming event. Visit www.jackpetcheyfoundation.org.uk for more of the evening’s highlights.
Extended Provision Managers, Mrs Bacon and Mrs Fugl said, “We would like to congratulate our students for their great achievements. They were: Thomas Charles, Ben Darby, Nicholas Fleming, Chelsey Howard, Chima Itabor, Sam Richards, Mollie Rimmell, Danielle Robertson and Jason (JJ) Rogers.”
