CONSCIENTIOUS students from 19 Hillingdon secondary schools had their hard work rewarded at a ceremony in Hayes.

The Jack Petchey Foundation Achievement Awards were presented to 138 pupils in the Beck Theatre.

The award winners, aged 11-25, were presented with medallions to accompany their framed certificates and £200 cheques, which had already been presented.

It brings the total amount awarded by JPF to youth groups in Hillingdon to £481,000 since funding started in 2006.

Winners included 13-year old cricketer David Morgans, from Barnhill Community High School, Hayes, sports enthusiast Rosie Castle, also 13, from Bishop Ramsey School, Ruislip, and Maria Angelica Dancel, 17, from Uxbridge High School, who moved to England less than three years ago.

Founder Jack Petchey, 88, said: “I am passionate about our awards scheme which enables young people to be recognised, valued and rewarded for their achievements and positive contributions to society.”
