Honoured to be part of newly-launched education awards evening

New City College was honoured to be part of the first-ever Redbridge Education Awards evening, held to celebrate those who have made a difference to the lives of young people.

As well as being one of the main sponsors of the event, New City College organised the technology, and provided Photography students to take pictures along with Performing Arts students to sing for the VIPs, winners and their guests.

Principal of NCC Redbridge campus, Narzny Khan, said she was delighted to present the Employee of the Year – Early Years Setting Award.

Narzny said: “New City College was honoured to be one of the main sponsors of such a brilliant event. It was fantastic to attend and to celebrate with such inspirational people. I am also very proud of our students who helped with setting up the technology, taking the photos and all the young performers who gave us such wonderful entertainment.”

The 14 winners were presented with trophies in categories such as Teacher of the Year, Champions for Change, Inclusivity Award, Employee of the Year, School Leadership Award, Vision Award and Lifetime Contribution Award.

The awards evening, held at Wanstead Golf Club on April 27 and hosted by legendary BBC Radio London broadcaster Eddie Nestor, was created this year for the first time to appreciate those special individuals who have shown commitment, hard work and dedication in providing innovative learning opportunities for young people across the borough.

Winners on the night came from a wide range of nurseries, special schools, multi-academy trusts, primary and secondary schools in the London Borough of Redbridge.

The New City College students who sang at the awards were Anycia Murray, Aleisha Thompson and Nicole Alexandra Gaspar Leite, who are all students at the Redbridge campus. It was the first time they had performed in front of an audience and they were very well received by all the guests.

Music students from Ardleigh Green campus – Grace Daniel, Tom White and George Widows – also provided musical entertainment, performing as the Red Velvet Band during breaks in the ceremony.

Suzanne Wright, Head of Family, Young People and Customer Services at Redbridge Council, said: “We had over 350 nominations for 250 teaching, support and early years staff across Redbridge. These were shortlisted down to three per category and finally to our 14 amazing winners. It was a great evening to celebrate our wonderful education staff with excellent entertainment from students at Wanstead High and New City College.”
