Last night we had a fantastic Awards Evening for last year’s year 8 students when we celebrated the achievements of our pupils for a huge variety of reasons.
It was a real pleasure to be able to make so many presentations of certificates, medals, trophies and vouchers and a few sweeties, too. Year 8 had a number of successes last year and presentations were made not only for academic excellence, but in recognition of all kinds of successes both in and out of the classroom, such as attendance, excellent citizenship, house accolades, and tutor awards.
There were some outstanding individual competitive sporting performances to reward with acknowledgement that at the end of the day the taking part in a sporting fashion is of paramount importance. The quality of musical talent was highlighted by the beautiful singing of Anna Metherall and Heather Gibbon.
Our vision at Workington Academy is to help youngsters to develop into Citizens of the Future – young leaders who demonstrate Respect, Responsibility and Resilience as their second nature. This was most keenly demonstrated last night. Well done to all involved.
