It was my pleasure to attend the TryAngle Awards organised by Kent County Council on Wednesday 18th September 2019 and watch 3 King Ethelbert Students collect their awards having won in the categories they were nominated for.
Lara Watkins is now at college but won an award for her work in the community during Years 10 and 11 at KES using British Sign Language — BSL. Lara worked at schools in 2 different roles, at a local primary she supported a deaf pupil 1:1 using BSL, and at a secondary school helped teach a class of year 7 BSL.
Phoebe Palmer won her award for COURAGE. Phoebe has had a difficult year and yet puts 100% effort into her school work, worrying about others more than herself despite all the hospital appointments she has had. No matter what has been going on for her medically she is always focused, polite and kind.
Lisa Marie Money won the category of Young Carer and Friendship for her positive outlook and her caring nature to all. She is starting her first year at University of Aberystwythin Wales on a scholarship.
It was a fantastic evening and I was immensely proud of our students. They looked stunning!
It was also rather emotional, but I only cried 4 times!!
