Celebrating our Changemakers: The Changemaker Awards
‘You are each and every one of you Changemakers.'
Dr Burley presented King’s High’s first ever Changemaker Awards at a special Changemakers’ Breakfast. He explained: ‘We are incredibly proud of the role you all play in our community of Changemakers. These awards are given for numerous different things, but ultimately, for kindness, courage, and character.’
Pupils across the school were nominated by their fellow pupils and staff, and none of them knew beforehand what they had been nominated for. Awards included: working to create awareness on environmental issues; busking at weekends to raise funds for charity; performing in the Friday Open Mic sessions; leading the Big Conversations; working to improve pupils’ awareness on disability; leading the Foundation’s Combined Cadet Force, and for one-off acts of kindness to people.
