5:00pm Saturday 28th July 2012 in News
A SPECIAL awards evening was held at Halesowen College to recognise the talent and achievement of pupils from six partner schools across the borough.
The college runs courses in performing arts, catering, art and design, animal care and hairdressing for special needs pupils from Brier, Pens Meadow, St Michael’s, Halesbury, Westminster and Cherry Tree schools.
They all received certificates of participation and attendance while special awards and a £10 voucher were given to the Most Improved Student and Hardest Working from each group.
The hardest working students were Louis Ludlow from Halesbury for animal care, Josh Robinson from Westminster and Emma Hookway from Halesbury for catering, Ryan Kearns from Brier for performing arts, Naomi Tolley from Westminster and Harpreet Bajwa from Halesbury for hairdressing and Sophie Brookes, also from Halesbury for art.
Most improved awards went to Sam Cadman from Westminster for animal care, Luke Ullah from Westminster and Liam Haines from Halesbury for catering, Tariq Yehia from Pen Meadows for performing arts, Daniel Hughes from Westminster and Shane Hipkiss from Halesbury for hairdressing and Kamar Pervaiz from Halesbury for art.
Each group showed off the work they had completed and the catering students provided a buffet.
The college’s school liaison director Janet Williams said: “All the pupils have worked so hard and have really done well over the year. It is great to work in partnership and see the pupils learn new skills. It has been the best year yet.”
