Westminster Kingsway College celebrates Student Achievement Awards
26 May 2010
Westminster Kingsway College held its Student Achievement Awards at the King’s Cross Centre yesterday to celebrate the hard work of students who have excelled this academic year.
The awards were in recognition of both 14-19 students and adult learners at the King’s Cross and Regent’s Park Centres, with nominations coming from teachers, tutors and staff from the Learning Centre and Student Activities. The award categories included best student group, awards for students who had excelled in individual learning and for students who had made exemplary progress in their learning.
Kim Caplin, Vice Principal 14 – 19 Pathways, said: “At Westminster Kingsway College, the Student Achievement Awards is our chance to say how proud we are of the students at the King’s Cross and Regent’s Park Centres for all their hard work and achievements. The awards are also a form of encouragement to the students to keep up their hard work.”
The award for overall independent learner went to ESOL Entry Level 1 student, Diana Nyandeng Arop. Diana, was chosen as she balances her studies with caring for her three children and shows outstanding motivation and dedication to her studies. She was also praised for her support of others in class and at College.
Diana said: “I’m so very happy to have won this award. I am enjoying my time at Westminster Kingsway and I can see why the College came so highly recommended to me. I enjoy the extra curricular activities here, especially the Learning Centre Reading Club. When I finish my studies, I would like to work in Childcare.”
The overall winner in the group category went to the BTEC National Diploma for IT Practitioners – Group A. The group won the award for their consistently good attendance and outstanding commitment to their studies. They were also praised for their punctuality in meeting deadlines and the high standard of their work.
Genora Parker, Westminster Kingsway Tutor, said: “The group has maintained a high attendance record even though a number of them have had a range of external pressures that would have meant them staying away. I’m very proud of them.”
Alex Poliakoff, BTEC First Travel & Tourism student, was awarded the overall winner for distance travelled in his studies. He was commended for consistent and committed approach to work and his drive and determination to work independently.
