At Drumbeat School we are part of the Jack Petchey Award Scheme. Claire Tillotson is our co-ordinator.
What is it?
The Jack Petchey Vision and Mission
The Jack Petchey Foundation established 1999 (a registered charity and company limited by guarantee)
Our vision is of a world where young people have high aspirations; the opportunity to develop their potential; the chance to be architects of their own future; to play a full part in society and to be valued and recognised for the positive things they achieve.
To enable young people (aged 11 – 25 years in London, Essex & the Algarve area of Portugal), to achieve their potential by inspiring, investing in, developing and promoting activities that increase their personal, social, emotional and physical development.
The Jack Petchey Foundation draws on the ideology, vision and values of its Patron Jack Petchey CBE who epitomises the saying: “If you think you can, you can!”
For the academic year 2012 – 2013 our winners have been:
- Scott Lynch,
- Rabie Babiker
- William Mukui
- Cameron Smith Johnson
- James Noulton
- Caroline Cheng
We were all invited to an award ceremony at The Albany Theatre in Deptford where our students were presented with a medal from the Major of Lewisham.
As well as this winners receive a £200 cash prize which they spend with their class. This has included trips out in London, Go Cart racing and visits to the cinema.
