Students Celebrated at Annual Awards Evening
Hardworking students were honoured for their achievements over the last academic year at New Line Learning's annual awards evening.
More than 70 students collected prizes at last night's ceremony, which was presented by NLL's Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl, after being nominated by teachers in recognition of their dedication to certain subjects.
The winners' families who came along to the event were treated to a montage of clips for each year group, showing the nominees explain why they enjoy their lessons.
NLL’s Principal David Elliott and the Mayor of Maidstone, who both gave speeches during the evening, presented the certificates and gift vouchers to each student.
Chair of Governors, Marilyn Hodges, had the honour of presenting the Governors’’ Cup award to Year 12 student, Laura Valach.
Laura was chosen for the prize in recognition of her impressive five A* and A GCSE grades, and for her initiative shown during work experience week. Laura managed to secure a placement in the Czech Republic, working in a psychiatric hospital. She arranged the whole trip by herself and arranged to stay at the nurses’ home.
Mr Elliott said: “The evening is a great way to celebrate the successes of our students with their family, friends and staff.
“All of the deserving winners are a credit to NLL and are excellent role models to our younger students. Congratulations to them all and also to our senior students who presented the event. You were all fantastic hosts."
