Amazing Chantry Academy students rewarded at celebration night
For these young Chantry Academy students who have spent a year working hard, this was their just reward.
The school in Mallard Way held a celebration evening where approximately 60 awards were given to young people, with prizes for individual subjects as well as a science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) award and one for resilience.

Craig D'Cunha, principal of the academy, said of the event on Wednesday, July 18: "It's a chance to celebrate the success of our students - not just the academic but the community participation element as well."
Even though good exam results are a reward for the students, Mr D'Cunha said it was also important to recognise "broader values".
He added that there were "so many kids who could've won" awards but that judges had to make tough decisions about who to select as the winners.
Earlier this month, year-11 students at Chantry Academy were given "their night to shine" at their leavers' prom.
