Jack Petchey Foundation - Douay Martyrs
Thursday April 19th 2018 marked the occasion of the Hillingdon Jack Petchey Award Evening. A fantastic occasion to celebrate the incredible successes of nine of our wonderful students at Douay Martyrs Catholic School and one incredible member of staff. All recipients have gone over and above their daily lives contributing to the school community and epitomising the ‘Douay Way’. This year’s celebrants were:
Leader – Ms Brazier our referral unit
Last year’s Year 13 a true Douay Ambassador – Sam White
Our Head Girl – Oliwia
Multi-talented and academic Year 13 Agnes
All-round supportive and mathematical Sixth-former Filip
Talented Musical Year 13 twins Shirley and Vivian
One of our year 10 Ambassadors – Chardonnay
Year 10 fantastic academic and musical all-rounder Jessie
And Daniel our Key stage 3 student who has tackled the challenges of secondary school life with aplomb.
All achievement winners were presented with their awards by the Mayor of Hillingdon and were supported by staff, students and families of over 20 local schools. The evening at the Beck Theatre had an incredible atmosphere. TDMCS had huge numbers of staff and students supporting our winners and enjoyed and fantastic evening together. As is tradition Douay was able to provide our musical talent and this year Vivian and Shirley played a beautiful piano duet – Turkish March and Agnes mesmerised us with her beautiful voice singing Beyonce’s Sandcastles. All winners are given £250 to spend in areas of improvement around the school and a number of faculties, departments and recreational areas have large items provided by the Jack Petchey Foundation and these are enjoyed and taken advantage of by huge numbers of our students of all ages.
As a ‘Golden School’ TDMCS has the maximum number of 9 students per year to nominate together with a worthy leader. Staff and students are currently voting for this years’ first cohort of Jack Petchey winners.
