Students at Fairfield Farm College have won the Student Council Award at Westbury Young People Awards 2022.
The event, hosted at Matravers School saw the students from the Student Council pick up the accolade for their hard work and commitment to their roles. From fundraising efforts to supporting their peers during the pandemic, the Student Council have shown great strength, determination and have always represented the student voice at the college.
“For the past three years, I have had the pleasure of working with and supporting the Student Council. They have brought the thoughts and ideas of the college community to life. A huge congratulations to Josh, Lucy, Brook, Kyle, and Elliott on their well-deserved win.” said Lindsay Elkins, the Fairfield Farm College Student Council Lead.
Another award was won by Ann, who picked up the ‘Young Leader and Community Spirit’ accolade. For the last three years, Ann has worked tirelessly with the Student Council and led her peers to collect countless boxes of food and essential items for the local food bank in Westbury. Her compassion and generosity toward others are amazing, even thinking of Christmas and Easter saying “everyone deserves a bit of chocolate”.
