In April 2018 The Warren School’s 2017-2018 Jack Petchey Award winners were celebrated with a gala evening at The Barking Broadway Theatre. The evening was attended by The Mayor of Barking and Dagenham and other local dignitaries. Our award winners are picked anonymously by their peers for their contribution to both the school and wider community. Our amazing winners were, Kayleigh Imeri, Andrei Stoica and Warin Sarakitgoson.
On the night Priscille Diakiese and Krystal Spiers performed a blistering duet of Broken Strings that brought the house down, both girls were ably accompanied by Mrs Briner on the piano.
Each winner is awarded £250 to spend on areas of the school they feel will benefit the most pupils. Funding this year went towards a guest author, new resources for the library and the EAL department. In addition Mrs Hutchings who won our Leader Award this year has been awarded £750 to fund the improvement of the 6th form Garden, allowing students a place to relax and meditate.
All the winners were ably supported by family and friends and we are incredibly proud of all of them. They are amazing role models for our school and will continue to be supported by The Jack Petchey Foundation by a new mentoring initiative that commenced last year.
