Bolton School Wins Place at vInspired National Awards Ceremony
Thursday, 13 March 2014
Bolton School has won a place at the vInspired National Awards Ceremony! The Sixth Formers’ dedication to volunteering has ranked the school as top in the region, with the highest proportion of students registering their hours and also achieving awards at 50 or 100 hours of voluntary work.
The pupils have now registered over 9000 hours of volunteering – and 3129 hours were logged in February alone! This is an amazing achievement, and each pupil should be very proud to have contributed.
Eight Sixth Form pupils and two teachers will be representing the school at the awards ceremony on the 27th March, which will be held at the IndigO2 in London. The Boys’ Division chose Thomas Chia, Andrew Clelland, Paul Greenhalgh and Thomas Howarth as their representatives, while Ananya Baksi, Katie Nightingale, Lisa Quinn and Amber Tobin will go on behalf of the Girls’ Division.
These pupils were selected not only for the number of hours of voluntary work they have completed, but also because they have done a variety of activities and contributed in a big way to the wider community. They were also chosen for the impact the work has had on them, as much as for their involvement.
The Sixth Formers will travel down to London with the Head of Community Action, Mrs Entwistle, and the Boys’ Division Community Action Coordinator, Mr Howard. There, they will enjoy a three-course meal, entertainment, and get to watch the individual awards ceremony. They will also learn more about the volunteering experiences of some of the other participants.
This is a fantastic achievement for the Sixth Formers and for the school, and we would like to congratulate them for their achievements.
