Students praised at end of year awards

August 13, 2014

Inspiring students from West Cheshire College are celebrating after being recognised in nine separate award ceremonies for their achievements over the past year.

Public services, sport, engineering, health and social care, childcare, travel and tourism, hospitality and catering, business and performing arts all held their own award ceremonies to reward those students who have excelled.

Alana Rugsby, 17, from Ellesmere Port, who won Student of the Year in Public Services, said: “I love studying public services and I’m so pleased to have won the award.

“I have just finished my first year on the course and have one year left. When I finish I hope to become a Police Dog Handler.

“The award came as a massive surprise to me. It’s all thanks to the course and the tutors that I now have the confidence to pursue my career path with the Police.”

Adam Gee, 17, from Eastham, who is studying Professional Cookery Level 1, said: “I’m so surprised to have won the Future Manager Award in Hospitality and Catering.

“I think I won the award because I’m always happy to help if there is ever a problem. Plus, when we are catering for events I try to always help and support my course mates.

“In September I am going to continue with my Level 2 and then progress to Level 3. I have a real passion for food which is why I’m so enthusiastic on my course.”

Performing arts held their annual Pete Southcott Awards in memory of the College’s former Manager of Performing Arts who died in 2007 and was presented by Pete’s partner Carol Maynard.

Students put on acting and dancing performances and one winner was selected from each category by a panel of judges. The awards were presented by former performing arts student Joel Anderson.

Nigel Davies, Principal and Chief Executive of West Cheshire College, said: “We have some fantastic talent at the College and it’s great that our students are rewarded for all their hard work and dedication.

 “Our winners are all inspirational and we wish those students who have left the College this summer the best for their future careers.”
