2020 Awards: Key Stage 4 – Ways of Being
KS4 CO-OP ‘WAYS OF BEING’ AWARDS
Key Stage 4 students have worked extremely hard, this year, in spite of the recent circumstances and there were numerous contenders in all categories for these awards. We have chosen three individuals and a group, all of whom are a credit to the Academy and to themselves and thoroughly deserve this recognition for their efforts and contributions.
The KS4 ‘DO WHAT MATTERS MOST’ AWARD goes to …
When Mrs. Welford took over his coaching group at the start of Y11, all students were really welcoming, Kian particularly so. He is a kind, friendly and considerate student, who, since lockdown, has been in touch frequently, regularly checking that he is not missing any work or information and keeping up with the tasks set, as well as enquiring after staff to see how they and their families are doing in these challenging times. Kian works hard to overcome his natural shyness to get involved in coaching and class discussions. He never has a bad word to say about anyone and he always does what matters most, which is to be kind and to look out for others. Well done, Kian!
The KS4 ‘SHOW YOU CARE’ AWARD goes to …
When you picture a nominee for the ‘Show You Care’ Award, Grace is the definition of this way of being. She never fails to consider the wellbeing and feelings of those around her, whether that be her fellow coachees, a passing student in the corridor or, indeed, her teachers! She greets everyone with a smile, no matter who they are or how well she knows them, unaware of how such a small gesture can make someone’s day a little brighter. Over the past year, Grace has shown humility and consideration for others in situations that haven’t always been easy and this has not gone unnoticed. She is a role model in how to show you care. Well done, Grace!
The KS4 ‘SUCCEED TOGETHER’ AWARD goes to …
Kiran Bahia, Rabia Rahim, Anisah Afzal, Qasim Ali and Afif Choudhury
These students had attended at least twelve hours of extra Maths revision before the school closure due to Covid-19. They worked really well together and it is amazing that they were already attending revision classes in Y10. They have all made great progress, this year, and have shown themselves to be capable of brilliant academic work and exceptional effort. Congratulations to you all!
The KS4 ‘BE YOURSELF ALWAYS’ AWARD goes to …
This award describes Henry perfectly. A popular member of his Year Group and within the Oasis area, Henry really is ‘himself always’, never compromising to ‘fit in’. Henry is an individual, who will always try his utmost to challenge himself and who will always stand up for others. It gives me great pleasure to announce him as the winner of this award. Well done, Henry!
