On Saturday 25 November 2017, The College of Animal Welfare’s head office in Cambridgeshire played host to the 2017 Student Awards Ceremony.
The annual awards celebrate and recognise the achievements of students who have displayed a high level of excellence, whether it be achieving high grades, overcoming personal challenges or making a positive impact within their group or to the College as a whole. George Sim, personal achievement winner in Business Administration, said, “I’ve learnt a great amount of knowledge regarding the business administrative sector and it’s also provided me with skills that I didn’t know I could achieve, and I’m really, really happy about that.”
The event gave everyone the chance to come together and celebrate the hard work and efforts made throughout the year. Sheila White, personal achievement winner in Leadership and Management, said, “I personally felt it was a big achievement for me and then to have somebody else recognise that external to my family is a really nice feeling.”
Barbara Cooper, Principal of The College of Animal Welfare, said, “It’s an occasion that they [award winners] can look back with fond memories. Fond memories of the hard work that they had in achieving both their qualification and also the award that they received.”
She continued, “It’s a time when they’ve been able to celebrate with their family, their friends, their colleagues, and also those tutors who they have taken messages from, and I would hope that it’s an opportunity for them to really have huge pride in being able to share some of that in the future.”
