Jack Petchey Award Evening
The Jack Petchey Foundation was set up to recognise the outstanding achievement and talent of young people.
On Wednesday 22nd November, our nine winners from 2016-17 attended the Jack Petchey Awards Evening at the Richmond Theatre. Special guests, the mayors of Richmond and Kingston, were also in attendance to congratulate the winners and hand out medals.
Last year, Hampton High students won awards for an array of reasons:
1. Mohammed Deria – national recognition for dramatic arts
2. Tyler Thompson – academic achievements
3. Kieran Moses – volunteering in the wider community
4. Ajay Purja-Pun – outstanding sports achievements
5. Bijay Purja-Pun – outstanding sports achievements
6. Tom Park – active contribution to the school community
7. Lauren Moses – academic achievements
8. Molly Bowker – academic achievements
9. Abi Fisher – active contribution to the school and wider community
It was a proud night. Four of our talented Year 11 girls performed their own choreographed dance called ‘Dark Shadows’ in front of a theatre full of parents, students from neighbouring schools and distinguished guests. Their performance was skilled, moving and precisely timed.
Our performers were Hana Mulaku, Tia Butterfield, Ella Bullimore and Innes Gahn.
The high-quality performance and outstanding achievement of our students made Hampton High stand out amongst the schools within the community. One of our students, Abi Fisher, gained media interest for her achievements.
Congratulations to everyone involved and Miss Harris for the hard work and guidance she has given to her GCSE Year 11 students.
