Community Awards

The Academy were the proud sponsors of two awards at the recent Cornishman Community Awards evening held at the Carbis Bay Hotel.


The evening was a celebration of everything that makes the community here in Penwith so special.


Mrs Davey presented the Child of Courage Award to two special and inspiring children. Joanna  Nankervis who after years of dialysis finally underwent a transplant and has since took part in the transplant games winning many medals. Joseph Elseworth, who is only 4 years old, was diagnosed with the condition Treacher-Collins and has had many complex operations but despite all this remains a cheerful and happy boy.


Mrs Davey said afterwards; ” We were delighted to be involved in such a high profile event. The evening was a fantastic celebration of our community and the two Children of Courage are an inspiration to us all.


Our Applied Minds Teaching School also sponsored the Teacher of the Year Award which was presented by former students Ben George, Isaac Blackbourn and Ellie Peters.


Mr Hall, Director of the Teaching School said; “It was great to have the opportunity to sponsor the Teacher of the Year. Bilbo’s story is a wonderful example of how children love to learn in a variety of different ways and that it is up to us as teachers to give them as many opportunities as possible”.


Mr Eddy also made a starring appearance collecting the Sportsman of the Year award for his fantastic Triathlon performances throughout the year.


Congratulations to everyone who was nominated, you are all a credit to our community.
