Supportive Hunstanton student receives Rotary prize
A Hunstanton sixth form student who has worked with police and younger pupils has been honoured by the town's Rotary Club.
The club presented its 14th annual Centenary Award for Community Service and Enterprise at the Smithdon High School sixth form leavers' assembly last Thursday.
All sixth form students were invited to apply for the award with a prize of £250 with details of community and enterprise work.
The shortlisted candidates were asked to give a 10 minute presentation on their work to the awarding panel.
And the winner was Kay Naveh, who has acted as a classroom assistant helping year 7 students with their reading and written work, as well as helping at workshop events in nearby primary schools.
She is also a Norfolk Youth Commissioner, working with the police to gain feedback from young people, has worked as part of a government ‘buddy’ scheme where she befriended an autistic person and completed the National Citizenship Service programme.
The club awarded prizes to three highly commended students, Aiden Doughty, Jessica Wood and Danielle Young.
Head of year 13 Steve Chapman said: "The school is grateful for its continued links with the Rotary club and its support for the award in recognising community work."
