On Tuesday 25th April our peer mentoring group attended the Wandsworth Young Person of the Year awards ceremony at Wandsworth Civic Centre. The awards evening gave recognition to the winners of the WYP2017 in the borough. Southfields Academy won the Group Award, this was presented to ZaKia Ali 12BGM and Jeff Santiago 13BTR; the young people collected a cheque with a grant of £500, a certificate and a trophy from Mayor, Councillor Richard Field. Both of these students have excelled whilst studying at Southfields Academy.
At Southfields Academy peer mentoring provides an opportunity for senior students to volunteer as mentors to support EAL students and to participate in our Edu-Tainment Project- to engage young people with activities to learn about our British culture. For More Information Visit the link.
