Annual awards evening hailed as a success

Sanders Draper School celebrated their numerous sporting successes of the past year at their annual sports awards evening recently.

Prizes were handed out in a host of categories, including Curriculum Performers, GCSE Performers, Outstanding Achievement Awards, Team Acknowledgement Awards, Effort Award and Team of the Year.

The prestigious Sanders Draper Award was won by Jack Hurley and Georgie Taylor, who have demonstrated outstanding achievement in Physical Education, extra curricular activities and participation at a leadership level in the community.

A spokesperson said: “They continually demonstrate attributes that make them role models for all students.

“This is the top award that can be received in PE and one that can only be achieved through continually upholding the high standards and expectations of the Physical Education department.”

Paul Sturrock, manager of League Two club Southend, was a VIP guest speaker at the event and presented certificates and trophies.

Joe Moffat, head of PE at Sanders Draper, said “It was a successful evening, enjoyed by all. The students were a credit to the school and it was a privilege to share our sporting successes with Paul Sturrock.

“The evening was highly enjoyable and the Sanders Draper School is tremendously proud of their award winners. Students deserve the recognition they have received, with all that they have achieved over the past year.”
