Jack Petchey Celebration Evening
Congratulations to all our Jack Petchey Award winners
This year’s Jack Petchey Award winners attended a Celebration Evening at Waterman’s Theatre on Wednesday 25th May to receive their awards. They are pictured above with newly appointed Mayor of Hounslow Councillor Ajmer Grewal.
It was a lively event, fully supported by family and friends.
The Award winners are pictured below being presented with their medals by Councillor Tom Bruce who is the Hounslow’s Cabinet member for education and children’s services. There are also details of their nominations based on students’ and teachers’ comments outlining why these amazing students deserved a Jack Petchey Award. As well as the medals the students receive money to spend on an activity for their school friends – some have already been to a show, Matilda.
