Harry is a happy and caring child who unselfishly decided to dedicate his time and efforts to help those who are more unfortunate than himself.
After seeing the recent devastation in Australia Harry asked his mum if he could donate his pocket money. Being the thoughtful child that he is he then decided he wanted to do more and chose to swim 500m. A distance 5x more than he has ever swam before!
Through lots of training, hard work and dedication Harry persevered to swim that distance and raise a staggering £1600. His efforts were shared across the country and are been recognised by the Koala hospital that he has raised funds for. He is a kind and charitable child that has worked tirelessly to help others. – (Trenance Learning Academy)
After hearing him on the radio and seeing social media posts I believe Jago has a fantastic work ethic which seems to be lacking in people as years go by. Jago offers kind services of dog walking, car cleaning, leaflet distribution, shopping and gardening just to name a few for the people of Newquay, if you need his help, can’t quite make it to the shop, feeling under the weather or just can’t fit a chore into your schedule he’ll certainly be there to help. He works extremely hard and is willing to help people, his hard work deserves recognition. (Lizzie Hughes)
Olivia is a member of the Newquay surf lifesaving club. She has been a member since she was a nipper around 7 years old. She has worked her way up through the club and has completed her lifeguard award and various other awards. Basically, anything she’s allowed to do she does. With all her newly learnt qualifications she gives back to the club over and over again. Olivia has given up her evenings to come and help out at nipper sessions (every nipper session) and she has also been given up her time over the winter to volunteer to patrol Fistral beach alongside another team managed by Nick Penderick. This is completely voluntary our club has done to help keep the beach’s safe when they are not patrolled by the RNLI. Olivia computers for most of them. She is a huge valuable member of the club but also what she has given to the community patrolling and helping to coach young aspiring lifeguards from as young as 7 is such a value. For her age I think she has shown true commitment and passion for giving back to her local SLS club and her community. She is a true inspiration. (Natalie Semley)
Sienna is a very kind and caring young girl with a passion for wildlife and for helping others. Ever since the news of the Australian fires first appeared on Newsround she was determined to help and to make a difference in any way possible.
The very next morning she came bursting into school with a beautiful poster proposing a fundraising film event. She had thought of a suitable film, ideas for donations and when and where it could be held. Not bad for an evenings’ work!
The school decided to go ahead with Siennas film idea and it raised an amazing £544.37 which was split between two Charites, WWF Australia and Port Macquarie Koala Hospital.
This is just one example that highlights Sienna’s caring character. She is a happy girl with a lovely sense of humour who always offers to help others.
She has worked hard throughout her three years here at Trenance and is popular girl with many friends throughout the school. Sienna always tries her hardest at all that she does and enjoys challenging herself in new situations. (Mr. Bowen – Trenance Learning Academy)
In November 2017, I was diagnosed with incurable cancer. Understandably this was, and will continue to be, a difficult diagnosis for us all as a family. Life is definitely a rollercoaster and we try to make everyday count. This being said, Zach has shown amazing strength of character and has/is coping fantastically well. Zach has a selfless outlook and wanted to help others, and so decided to “brave the shave” for Macmillan Cancer Care and The Cove Centre at Treliske hospital. Zach had his hair shaved on 21st March 2019, by his headteacher Craig Hayes (Newquay Junior Academy) in front of the whole school. The other pupils of the school gave Zach a standing ovation. Zach raised nearly £4500. This exceeded his original target of £500!! All monies were gratefully received by the charity. Alongside this, Zach is also an active member of Newquay Hornets Rugby Club and helps out on a weekly basis at CHAT alpaca farm. We are extremely proud of Zach! (Philippa Piper)
