Jack Petchey Spring Winner
The school council selected Jake (Year 12) to receive the Jack Petchey award. Jake was nominated for his excellent attitude and efforts since joining Cheam in the Sixth Form.
His nomination praised his great help to the Technology department – volunteering at open evenings and each night of school productions. He has completed ten hours of volunteering within the department and continues to help out in any lower school practical lessons where he can and to mentor two boys from the lower school once a week. He has also signed up as a Youth Ambassador for the Daniel Spargo Mabbs Foundation - this is the sixth form charity for this year. Jake helps at evening and weekend events; this can be anything from walking around shopping centres with a bucket collecting money to helping to set up talks and working with groups of young people. Jake is also a competitive swimmer - he has reached county level competitions and he is also a swimming teacher.
For winning this award, Jake will receive a framed certificate, badge and membership to the Jack Petchey Foundation. Additionally, he receives a £250 donation from the Jack Petchey Foundation to spend on an event or resources for the school of his choosing.
Well done Jake!
