On Thursday 12th July, The Bromfords School and Sixth Form College hosted their seventh Sarah Kitchener Awards Evening.
Sarah Kitchener was a student at The Bromfords School between 1991 to 1998. Sarah was an outstanding student who contributed to all aspects of school life. In 2006 Sarah Kitchener was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour. When faced with this life-threatening illness Sarah’s strength and determination to keep achieving never waivered. Her courage to work hard and challenge herself when faced with adversity was an inspiration to all who knew her. In March 2010 Sarah sadly lost her battle for life. The school work closely with Sarah’s family and in honour of an outstanding person like Sarah it was proposed to have the Sarah Kitchener Endeavour award. One student per year group was nominated by staff for their outstanding contribution to school life and personal accomplishments.
Year 11 student Rylee Doe won The young MacMillan Champion Regional Fundraiser Award for his outstanding commitment to fundraising. A representative from MacMillan Cancer Research surprised Rylee on the evening and presented him with his award.
