''Lord of the Wings'' Receives a Wings of Hope Achievement Award
Collingwood's fundraising team for the Wings of Hope charity receive award.
On Thursday 2 May a group of our Year 9 students, aka Team ‘Lord of the Wings’, were invited to attend the 2013 Evening Awards Ceremony for the Wings of Hope Achievement Awards (WOHAA).
The ceremony was held at the Royal College of Surgeons in London. This was the culmination of the fundraising activities competition for which the team had been declared semi-finalists. Our students were accompanied on the trip by Mrs Green (Year Manager - Year 9) and Mrs Lee (Pastoral Assistant - Year 9). They were chosen as only 10 award winners from around 320 original entrants to the competition. The team writes:
“We were really excited on the train, laughing and having fun. With the girls in fairy wings and face paint we entered the Royal College of Surgeons which was beautiful and very grand. We ate dinner and then went and sat down. There was a really cool presentation and with music blaring they started handing out the awards. They got through many, then they said “and the runner-up for the best presentation is……..The Lord of the Wings”. We were all really excited and went up to collect our award; we all got beautiful trophies. A photo was taken with the co-founder of WOHAA (as shown above) and then we sat back down. As we left we were really excited at the prospect of next year which we have already decided to participate in.”
Many congratulations to ‘Lord of the Wings’ - we are extremely proud of your achievements and look forward to hearing about next year’s fundraising activities.
