A host of sponsors, students and local dignitaries gathered at Greenwich Community College for the Annual Student Awards on Wednesday 28 October.
The event celebrates the achievement of students from the previous academic year.
Winners included, Donna Travis (pictured with Sponsor – Argus Electrical Services and Geoff Pine, Principal), song writer and recording artist Brainlokk (Daniel Blake) and the 2008 Student Union Executive team.
Former Student Union President, Muhammad Aasim Mirza attended to give a speech and provide inspiration to those moving on to jobs and higher education: “Greenwich Community College has given me nothing but opportunities for the future. The teachers are great, the staff are great and the corporation are great.”
At the ceremony, students were presented with certificates and gift vouchers donated by sponsors including: GLL, Focus on Business, Homrad, Charlton Athletic, and Access to Music.
Paul Archer from City & Guilds was happy to lend his support, saying after the event “I wanted to express just how pleased I was with your Annual Student Awards. I like the other sponsors took great pride in congratulating the numerous students whose achievements was celebrated”.
Geoff Pine thanked the sponsors and looked back at another successful year for the college as a whole:
“This annual awards evening gives us the opportunity to celebrate the remarkable achievements of our students. They are the living proof that we are achieving our College goal of becoming an outstanding college with an organisational climate that supports our students and staff in their endeavours.
The evening also gives our sponsors the opportunity to celebrate their links with the College by providing the funding for the awards and for this we are always very grateful. Not all our students can receive awards of course and those you will see tonight are just a small number of those individuals who make up the extraordinary student body that is Greenwich Community College”.
