Sixty-eight pupils from nine senior schools in Islington came together last week to receive prestigious Jack Petchey Foundation Achievement Awards at Islington Assembly Hall.
The event saw winners aged 11-25 receive medallions to go with their framed certificate and a cheque for £200, already presented.
The students were nominated by their peers and leaders, with awards for a variety of achievements – both big and small. Two adults were also honoured with Leader Awards for demonstrating an ability to motivate young people.
Winners included 11-year-old Angelica Bailey-Giordano, a sports ambassador for her form at Highbury Fields School. Angelica, who has also played in two national cup football games, spent the grant on a sports hall athletics running board, table tennis balls and shin pads.
Others included Zenari Singh, 15, from Holloway School and Mia Oyesiku, 11, from Elizabeth Garrett Anderson School.
