October’s Jack Petchey award was given to a Year 7 boy last week.
This is a very unusual step for a new student to be given such an accolade but this student impressed the Head so much the rules were broken to accommodate this excellent pupil.
Brian Chyzowski who is 11 and joined St Bonaventure’s 12 weeks ago from Shaftesbury Primary School and settled straight in.
Although Brian is a new Bon’s boy he has already demonstrated lots of enthusiasm and organisational skills and determination.
He went to see the Head about starting a card club and set about designing posters and marketing them. The club is proving popular.
“The club is a good way for new students to get to know each other” commented Mr Halliwell. He added: “Brian is very keen and he is to be applauded for his direct approach and can do attitude.”
Brian plans on designing and buying special badges and awards for his club with his £250 award money.
