Two pupils and three teachers at a secondary school on the Isle of Dogs have received ‘Community Champions’ awards from east London transport bosses.
Sixth form student Mazharul Islam from George Green’s Secondary received an Outstanding Achiever award, while fellow-pupil Luke Boyle-Reader was made Young Carer of the Year.
The awards were presented at Canary Wharf’s Radisson Hotel, organised by British Transport Police, TfL, DLR and its franchise operators Keolis Amey.
Award sponsors went out to the five London boroughs linked by the DLR and received a flood of nominations.
The school’s PE teachers Mark Davies and Thomas Murphy shared the award for Teacher of the Year—judges thought they were such a great team that they couldn’t choose between them, so they were both named equally.
Mark and Tom had many nominations from parents who attend the Saturday morning football sessions they hold who praised their work with the pupils.
Year 8’s learning manager Ryan West had a Highly Commended award for being a role model for pupils and “an excellent mentor”.
