The Jack Petchey Foundation was established in 1999 to support organisations that work with young people aged 11-25. Since its formation over £85 million has been distributed. At Charlton Park Academy we select winners by year group on a monthly basis. The School Council votes on the winner after nominations have been made by classes.
Last night was the annual Jack Petchey awards evening and three of our students were able to make it through all of the Take That mayhem at the O2 to get to the cinema in order to receive their awards. They confidently stood in front of seventeen other secondary schools from the Royal Borough of Greenwich and the Mayor of Greenwich.
Paris, Carlton and Rasharn all made an amazing effort to look smart and they represented the school amazingly well. Paris and Carlton even made it all the way to the end of the ceremony at 9:30! They all behaved impeccability and were a real credit to Charlton Park Academy. Kathryn Stowell also received her leader award at the event.
If you see Kathryn, Paris, Rasharn or Carlton around school today please take a moment to congratulate them on their achievements.
Lastly, thank you to Deb, Rachel, Jo and Sian who came along and supported us last night too.
