Northfield Student Awarded ‘Young Person Award’ 2016/17

Year 10 Liani was awarded the ‘Young Person Award’ last week at the Mayors Civic Award Ceremony at Billingham Forum.

Liani, who has volunteered at ‘Let’s take Action’ for the past four years was recognised and commended for her outstanding contribution to the Borough Stockton on Tees after she was nominated by members of ‘Youth Direction’. She has strived to help younger people develop and gain confidence and make new friends through organising and assisting in different activities and events.

The very humble Year 10 student spoke about how she has “enjoyed residentials, activities and being a guest speaker at events like the Corporate Parent Conference” and she said “my confidence has grown a lot and it’s been good dedicating time to younger people in the community and other local authorities”.

Many awards were given out to people who have helped others and the community but Liani was thrilled to be given the one of the six awards given out over the year for her hard work and dedication. Northfield School & Sports College is very proud to have such a positive role model for young people and would like to congratulate her on such an achievement, well done Liani!
