Another Jack Petchey Winner
We are pleased to announce our 12th winner of the Jack Petchey Achievement Award. This time the award goes to Emma Bronsdon, who has been making leaps and bounds since joining ADO in October of last year.
ADO Senior Manager, Kate O'Brien, has certainly been impressed with Emma's progress and now her peers have resoundingly voted for her to win the achievement award.
Kate mentioned, "Emma has been an apprentice at ADO since October 2018. She made a huge jump and left her sixth form when she was just starting year 13, as she saw the opportunity come up with ADO and felt that it suited her perfectly. Emma has stepped in to her position at ADO so well, we could not imagine anyone else filling the role.
On a daily basis Emma is supporting some of the most vulnerable children within the local boroughs, all of which have complex SEMH difficulties. Emma wears a smile as part of her uniform, and even when the children are having a particularly hard day, they know that Emma is there with open arms and a big smile. Emma is wise before her years, and is an absolute gem to manage. Our children and staff felt that Emma was deserving of this award due to her kindness, her positivity, having the ability to help the children believe in themselves, and generally being awesome.
Emma has spent her money on a new sports storage area, where she is able to keep the resources tidy, safe and well looked after whilst minimizing risks for the children. Emma loves her storage area so much, she threatens to sleep in it!"
ADO C.O.O. Gary McHolland-Pilcher continued, "Its refreshing to see a young talent, given the opportunity to forge a career for herself, not only take the opportunity, but to excel in it as well."
WELL DONE EMMA!!!
