All three guests presented the winner’s with their trophies. Hania’s nomination read: ‘Hania is an outstanding leader who rises to any occasion she is involved in.

Sophia’s nomination read: ‘Sophia is a dedicated and committed individual willing to involve herself in a range of leadership opportunities. Sophia uses her leadership qualities in Brooke Weston to run successful festivals and ensure that any young or old participant has a memorable and enjoyable time.

Annabel’s nomination read: ‘Annabel since the start of Year 7 has always shown a keen interest in sport. She has represented Brooke Weston in a variety of sports such as netball, basketball and sportshall athletics. Alongside this Annabel has been training for motorsports. She trains in the gym twice a week and trains on her bike every Tuesday and every other weekend. In the last year she has won the British Winter Championships and was voted one of the top 10 riders in the British Championship.’
