Our students have yet again produced a wide range of impressive achievements during the Winter term at the Five Islands Academy. Please do have a look at the Da Vinci awards for which they have been nominated below. They range from impressive County-level sporting contributions to highly motivated homework projects, from Grade 7 music achievements to committed volunteering outside school to support good causes. Well done to all the Da Vinci winners!
We celebrated the end of the first half of term with a fantastic assembly, sharing and admiring the mastery-level projects and achievements that have been awarded Da Vinci Awards so far this summer.
Our students’ successes ranged from astounding sporting successes (Megan Woodcock and Jack Austin) to high performance Year 11 learning (Sophie Jenkins and Loveday Lewin), from extra-curricular excellence in Science (Ashley Horton and Henry Dean) to truly committed homework projects on Race and Rhetoric (Rosie Dryden), and amazing ant expertise (Ahab Mawer). Da Vinci Awards were also given to each of our musicians who gained a Distinction in at least one class at last term’s Cornwall Music Festival - the just rewards of a huge amount of practice, dedication and talent. The music awards went to Inca Reynolds, Zachary Hick, Rosie Julian, Remy Lewin, Josh Carss, Sienna Hathway, Piran Julian, Libby Shave, Deya Reynolds, Isla Hicks and Megan Woodcock.
Isla Hicks was awarded a Da Vinci Badge - worth 10 Da Vincis - for her beautiful Autism Awareness video, which is touching people’s lives well beyond the confines of our school and these islands.
