Jack Petchey Award Winners 2018Posted on: 25/02/2019
The Jack Petchey Foundation’s flagship programme is its Achievement Award scheme – a reward and recognition initiative which enables schools and youth organisations to celebrate the achievements of their young people as well as receive additional funding for projects, events and equipment in their schools. Nine of your young people gained the award in 2018 and were presented at the Harrow Ceremony on Tuesday 12th February at The Watersmeet Theatre in Rickmansworth by the Mayor of Harrow.
We would like to congratulate them all and say how proud we are of all their achievements.

In addition, students are given the opportunity to perform at this event. Tia Pilgrim from Year 9 sang a solo – a fantastic performance of “A million Dreams” from “The Greatest Showman”.
Each Harrow school also has the opportunity to nominate a member of staff from their organisation for recognition. This year our award went to Georgiana Daviduca-Motfolea (pictured below). Georgiana is our Romanian Parent Ambassador (2 days a week) based in EAL department and a TA with the SEN department for 3 days a week.
Since she joined us on a voluntary basis in September 2014, she:
• has become a Parent ambassador – working in school and within the Borough delivering ESOL classes, liaising with parents and families, supporting new arrivals at school and into the country;
• readily translates for any meeting involving Romanian families;
• has put herself through training courses to Level 4 Advanced SEN ( gaining Distinction), Higher Level TA course (Distinction) , Level 3 Community Interpreting course, plus Parent Ambassador course.
Georgiana works above and beyond – is cheerful, lovely and flexible. She has worked hard to win parents’ trust and build a superb relationship with our Romanian community who truly value her contribution and we are so grateful to have her.
Thank you, Georgiana.
