Invicta student receives a Diana Award
Konrad Eke in 13C will be receiving a Diana Award for his hard work and time spent volunteering. Conrad volunteers at the Kent Libraries in Maidstone. David Castle, Customer Service Officer wrote this about him “It is difficult to give specific examples of his work with us, as two of his skills we most prize are his initiative and ability to go unsupervised. I can say though, his work as an IT Buddy at the Kent History and Library Centre has been diverse and undoubtedly demanding. Konrad has helped an incredibly wide range people, such as the elderly, the very young, customers whose physical or mental circumstances mean using technology unassisted is difficult, and those with so little IT exposure that the very idea of using a PC is too intimidating. He has helped the curious research their family history and shown school age children how to produce their homework”.
Konrad will receive his award at a prestigious ceremony at Canary Wharf in July. In addition to a sparkling Awards Ceremony, the day offers a menu of inspiring speeches, training in key employability skills and social action workshops. Award Holders will not only receive specialised training to help them develop their own projects, but will also be given the practical tools to work with other young people and teachers within their school or youth group to kick start new and exciting social action initiatives!
Well done Konrad! We are proud of you. This is fantastic achievement. We are so pleased you have received this recognition.
