EN PE and Public Services students scoop end of term awards

Students on courses in the Physical Education and Public Services curriculum area at East Norfolk Sixth Form College have been recognised for their exceptional work throughout the 2018-19 academic year.

Students have been nominated by their teachers for the student of the year award, with all nominees considered for the end of year award which is decided by those who have taught them.

Curriculum Team Leader Chris Duffy said “We’ve been overwhelmed by the standard this year and the competition for these awards. The nominees should be really proud of the recognition they have been given and we hope the award winners are now fully aware of the exceptional progress they have made this year. It was really hard to pick the winners in many cases which really is testament to the hard work put in by our students throughout the year.”

“I have to say a huge thank you to Pink Office Ltd who sponsored the awards this year and have given their support to us a number of times in the past. This has been an excellent year for these courses at East Norfolk with teachers on these courses also gaining national recognition from the exam boards for their exceptional work. We are already looking forward to next year where our current first year students will have to see if they are able to once again win the award”.

Connor Newton, winner of the 1st year Sport Science Extended Diploma student of the year award said “I chose to Sport Science as it’s a forever evolving subject which explores a multitude of academics. The support the teachers give is incredible. They go out their own way to help and support your learning, which I found extremely motivating. I’m grateful to have a supportive environment around me continue to develop my learning”

Morgan Collings, winner of the Public Services Subsidiary Diploma student of the year award commented “'My first year as a public service student has been a great way to start my college experience. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is interested about the public services. There has never been a dull moment in public services and each lesson is different. The amount of support and help that I have received from my teachers is great, whether work related or not, they are always there to give a helping hand”
