Awards for best students in first semester at Neeson Cripps Academy

It was the end of the first term of school at CCF’s Neeson Cripps Academy (NCA) and time to recognise who has shone in the classroom.

While all the pupils at the academy are stars in our eyes, only the best would be up for one of the achievement awards, given to those who have gained the most outstanding results in their class.

Average scores were collected to grade the students and find the top five.

In a ceremony at the NCA, 45 pupils received framed certificates in recognition of their sparkling performances and commitment to learning.

With her certificate in hand and a big smile on her face, Kanha, was clearly thrilled at coming out third in her Grade 10 class.
“I am very happy,” she said. “There are a lot of outstanding students in my class and I just tried my best.”
Watching her collect her award was her proud mum.
“I didn’t know I had won until they called my name out,” added Kanha, 16, who has also been chosen as one of the 10 CCF students attending the Global Youth Leadership Summit in San Diego in July.

Another award winner was Khourn who came fourth in her Grade 11 class.
“I worked very hard so I am pleased,” she said.
Before the awards were handed out, there was a traditional blessing dance followed by speeches from NCA students, parents and a teacher.
Paul Shelton, CCF’s Head of Education, said the awards event “was really strong evidence about the power of education, and our approach at CCF.”

“It shows that our students have achieved so much but more importantly that they understand that this is just the latest step on their journey to truly become the leaders of tomorrow”.
