  • The Bradford West Rotary Award

    President Robert and Vic represented the club at Dixons Allerton Academy Awards evening on Thursday 11th December 2014. There were 250 teachers, students and guests in the audience who received or witnessed no less than 85 prizes given out for various academic and practical achievements. Dixons Allerton Academy is a reflection of the Bradford community in every respect and there are no less 40 languages spoken by the students and staff.

    The Bradford West Rotary Award was the only prize given by an external organisation and it was at the top of the ‘Special Awards’ section above the Principal Award(s) from the head teacher, the Governor Award and Dixon Award. The Rotary Award went to Miss Areej Rashid, her citation is printed below and I am sure you will agree that is she not only a worthy winner but a credit to her family, her school and the whole community in Bradford.

    The evening was very rewarding for everyone who attended including the Rotarians. Bradford West received gratitude in abundance and we were treated with great respect and kindness. I would like to extend our thanks to Rotarian Vic for his work with the School and to everyone involved in the organisation leading up to the event.

    A photograph is awaited


    Areej has completed her Bronze Duke of Edinburgh award with the school. As part of her Award, she has shown that she can work as part of a team towards a common goal. She completed a three month project at Lilycroft Police Station in drug and alcohol awareness education as part of her volunteering. She also joined a boxing club to increase her fitness and for her skills section she learned how to cook. She should be commended for her part in the two expeditions which she has completed. Her impeccable map reading skills ensured her group successfully navigated through a variety of terrain and arrived safely at the campsite. In addition she completed a St Johns Young First Aider award to ensure her team had the relevant skills should they come under any problems.

    Areej is now completing her Silver Award with us and has already started volunteering for the British Heart Foundation every Saturday. She is also attending the gym weekly for the Physical section of her Award and is developing her Sports Leadership through helping younger students learn how to trampoline.

    Throughout both of these awards Areej has shown that her strengths lie in her ability to help others, contribute positively to a team and her ability to manage her time so that she could complete all sections of her Award whilst completing her academic studies. Well done Areej.
