Huge congratulations to Year 10 student, Callie Butler, who has been awarded 'Student of the Month' for January 2019.
Callie has been a part of the College community since starting in Year 7; she has been involved in the work of the Anti-Bullying Ambassadors, has performed and spoken in assemblies and is an integral part of the College's thriving Electric Car Club. She is a brilliant student, as is shown in the comments below. A massive 'well done' from all of us, Callie!
S Shute, Team Leader of Religious Studies
“Callie is in the electric car club and has been since Year 7; she is very keen and helpful and particularly good at improving the appearance of the machines and driving them. She is very good at driving the electric car and given a good performance in practice laps at races. She is a natural hovercraft driver and there are not many of those. She is currently involved in designing a new nose cone for our electric car, Lucy.”
Leader of the Electric Car Club
“It has been a privilege over the last four years to see Callie grow in inner-confidence. Callie overcomes challenges every day yet still insists on being treated with equity. Callie is always enthusiastic and is a natural leader. Callie put herself forward in September to be my co-tutor. She rigorously monitors equipment checks and scrutinises uniform every day. Her role on the Befrienders Team is extremely important to her; she is very proactive and swiftly goes to into action at a moment’s notice, as this is a matter near to her heart. She is now setting her sights on becoming a Prefect, which I fully support. I am amazed at her eagerness and energy to get involved with so many activities both in and out of College, skiing being one of them!”
L Cooper, Tutor and Teacher of Design and Technology
Callie shows so much resilience in every Design and Technology lesson. She is able to change and adapt her ways of completing a task using her own learning strategies; she is becoming an excellent problem solver. She comes to every lesson with a smile and has an exemplary attitude to learning.
