Eagles stu­dents cel­e­brate with award win

Try AngleKizzie Mab­ber­ley, Aston Fred­er­icks, James Warnes, Archie Lucas, Alfie Hughes, Josh Parker, Zach Churchill and Steven God­den rep­re­sented Eagles House by attend­ing the Dis­trict Try Angle Awards on 4 Dec at the Rams­gate Youth Centre.

Amidst over 100 nom­i­na­tions across Kent, the stu­dents of Eagles won the cat­e­gory award for Com­mu­nity Action after rais­ing almost £3500 in recent years for char­ity. As the top fundrais­ers over the last three years these 8 stu­dents were invited to rep­re­sent the 90 stu­dents over­all who have par­tic­i­pated in events.

We had the famous 2015 KES to Paris Chal­lenge which involved using the school gym to run the dis­tance from KES to Dover, row from Dover to Calais and cycle from Calais to Paris, all rais­ing money for Can­cer Resear UK and Breast Can­cer Care.

In 2017 stu­dents stayed awake from 8 pm — 8 am in the school sports hall in the All Nighter Lock In event, par­tic­i­pat­ing in sport­ing phys­i­cal activ­i­ties and rais­ing money for Barnardo’s.

In 2018 we hosted For­mula Run, where the chal­lenge was to com­plete the equiv­a­lent dis­tance of all twenty F1 race tracks on the school run­ning track — rais­ing money for the Pil­grims Hospice.

This award is thor­oughly deserved to the House and the stu­dents involved and they should be rightly proud of them­selves for mak­ing such a dif­fer­ence to the lives of oth­ers. Well done Eagles!
