Witchford Village College’s ‘Oscars’ Awards Ceremony took place on 19 July 2018. It was attended by students and their families who were given the full red-carpet treatment. Students had been nominated for awards by College staff in recognition of their achievements throughout the academic year. Two awards were presented for each subject area, with students being acknowledged for not only their academic success but also for their willingness and commitment to achieve. There were also Community, Governor, School Contribution and Principal’s awards. These were presented in recognition of students’ achievements both within and outside the College. Many were identified for their Charity work and willingness to help others less fortunate than themselves.
Awards were presented by the hugely inspirational Mr John Willis, founder of Power2Inspire. He gave a motivating speech about his life and achievements despite being born without fully formed arms and legs. He set up the Charity, Power2Inspire, to promote sport for everyone. During the evening, performances were given by pupils Sarah Jones on the piano and Rosie Scott on the harp showcasing some of the College’s musical talent.
It was a memorable evening, with very proud parents and their children enjoying the celebration. Staff had also turned out in force to support the event. Special thanks to John Willis who made an excellent guest speaker that we hope to see more of.
