Pupils receive Jack Petchey award for tough and generous efforts
Star pupils who bowled over teachers with their feats of generosity and endurance have spoken of their delight after they were honoured for their efforts.
A group of high-achieving teenagers at the Stanway School were presented with Jack Petchey awards recognising their hard work and tenacity.
Charlotte Smith, Lily Waterson and Melissa Chapman each received £250 to put towards a department of their choice.
Lily Waterson, 16, left headteacher Jonathan Bland stunned when she managed to climb the three highest peaks in Great Britain in under 24 hours with her father.
