Leeds West Academy

Rotary Award Winners

Two Leeds West Academy students have been awarded the prestigious Leeds Rotary Citizenship Award.

Sophie Downham and Carter Ambler were commended for outstanding community service in a ceremony held in the Banqueting Suite of Leeds Civic Hall, in the presence of the Lord Mayor of Leeds.

Ms Ward and Ms Banks nominated the students for the awards. Ms Ward, who attended the event, said: “Sophie and Carter represented the Academy in an outstanding manner, demonstrating to our wider community that they are indeed inspiring role models, both in and outside the classroom. I would like to thank Ms Banks for collating all of the information required for the student nominations and for being their marvellous Year Manager."

The Lord Mayor, who presented the awards, commented that the students were not only a credit to Leeds West Academy but to the Leeds community.

The annual Young Citizen Award Ceremony is organised by the Rotary Club of Leeds. More details about Rotary International can be found at their website http://www.rotary-ribi.org.
