Students at a Moorlands college have been recognised for their recent success.
Painsley Catholic College was able to return to a face-to-face awards evening on Wednesday, April 6, after a couple of years of disruption due to the pandemic.
The event was still scaled down, in order to reduce infection risk, however, 147 students were invited to receive awards on the special evening with one guest to accompany them.
Students from Years 7 to 10 received Outstanding Attainment and Progress Awards, 64 of these going to Year 7 students who started at the College in September. Students from Year 11 received Subject, Outstanding Effort, Senior Sports, D&E Matthews Award for Cricket and Special Awards and students from Year 13 received fourteen Special Awards.
Sophia Ferocino, James Howard (Year 10 students) and Madelyn Hammonds (Year 8) received the Robert Bickerton Endeavour Award, given to students who received the most number of nominations from all departments within the school and who have also had at least three 100 per cent effort certificates this academic year. William Simpson (Year 10) was the Faith in Action award.
Special guests in attendance included councillor Sue Walley, Mayor of Cheadle, and her consort, Mr K Walley who presented a civic award to Emre Tezgel. Councillor Lyn Swindlehurst, Mayor of Leek and her consort, along with Mr P and Mrs A Lomas from the Cheadle Rotary Club.
Chief Executive Officer of the Painsley MAC Steven Bell was the ‘Guest of Honour’ and he presented the awards.
Rachel Waugh, Principal at Painsley Catholic College, said: “The Painsley Catholic College Annual Awards evening is one of the main events in our calendar.
“Although we had to reduce numbers this year, it was fantastic to be able to return to holding the event in person.
We have an excellent cohort of students and it is amazing to be able to reward our learners with such a prestigious event.
“Congratulations to all of our winners, and my thanks to our special guests who were able to attend.”
The college has also had presentation ceremonies for all year groups following the evening to share additional awards for effort, sport, drama, music, UK maths challenge and world book day winners.
