Ceremony held to mark achievements of Tower Hamlets pupils
The achievements of 300 of Tower Hamlets’ exceptional students were marked with a ceremony last week.
Students between the ages of 16 and 18 were selected by their schools in recognition of their exceptional contributions, through academic excellence or other means.
One student who was recognised at the second annual Mayor’s Education Achievement Awards ceremony, held at the Troxy, in Limehouse, was 16-year-old Chloe Bowden.
The winner of the award for academic excellence at key stage 4, from Raines Foundation School in Bethnal Green said: “The speeches from the guest speakers were incredibly inspiring.
“They made me think that you need to work hard, but keep a balance because you are only young once.”
