“Great scenes of jubilation took place at Stanmore College on Friday, 27th January. Individual students learned a valuable lesson in life; that hard work and determination really does pay off and this will enable them to progress and achieve excellent results in the summer. My congratulations go to all of the students concerned and I also want to thank all of the staff who have played a key role in helping them achieve these fantastic results.” Sarbdip Noonan, Principal.

Stanmore College arranged the 'Grand In Your Hand' (GIYH) initiative to reward students of the College that are showing excellent attendance and hard work in their study programmes. Strict eligibility criteria must be met before the students qualify, including above 90% attendance in all of their study programme, including English and maths lessons. The main reward that students receive is a laptop that is for them to keep. This will help them in their current and future studies and we hope that it will support them to be successful in their careers. Other rewards that students benefit from include free membership of the College's gym, free breakfast/lunch and free software for their new laptop.

The first 54, of in the region of 300 eligible students, attended the celebratory awards’ event in the Social Learning Centre at the College where Principal, Sarbdip Noonan, congratulated each student individually, presenting each one with a Certificate for excellent attendance and a mini laptop. Among the students were Roopa Shah and Durga Jagdish (100% attendance), Noor Al-Jabery (99.6%), Charlotte Phillips, Reema Rajani, Bijay Thapa and Christyn Owusu (99.5%), Natalia-Loredana Cata (99.2%), Siddika Rashid (99%), Rishal Patel (98.9%), Hiren Raichura and Amal Al Onaizi (98.8%) and the remainder were closely behind.

Comments received from the deservedly proud students included “I have gained many skills in this great College and many friends, this College has given me opportunities I never found possible”, “It’s a great College, really makes the students proud when they do well”, “amazing - rewarding students for their hard work”, “Very happy that I have this opportunity with the use of a laptop to help with my work!”, “amazing experience, good learning environment”, “the College is very helpful”, “got a free laptop for excellent attendance - it was amazing!”, “very happy” and “the teachers are really nice and they meet students’ needs”.

The Principal, governors and staff of Stanmore College are extremely proud of the students and offer their heartiest congratulations to those who have shown such excellence. The good news is, for those students who haven’t achieved such high attendance and behaviour, the ‘Grand In Your Hand’ incentive has been extended to motivate them to improve and they will have until Easter 2017 to meet the criteria.

PAFTACongratulations to Sophie Morson who was the winner of the ‘Best Poster Presentation’ at this year’s Paediatric Awards For Training Achievements (PAFTA's).

A PAFTA recognises the unsung heroes in this sector who go the extra mile for their patients and colleagues, and individuals are nominated by their peers as deserving appreciation of their efforts.

Sophie was in a competitive category which included 28 other nominees but she beat the competition with her poster shown in this article’s image. 

Sophie’s poster is targeted at children and help communicates what can be a daunting experience in a playful manner through the use of Lego. 

Well done to Sophie who received a certificate for her work.
