Lambeth College's Health and Well-being Centre at our Vauxhall Centre is pleased to be a part of the Jack Petchey Foundation. The Health and Well-being Centre has been granted the Gold Achievement Award Scheme, which enables the College to nominate 6 outstanding learners per academic year for sports achievements. Each learner will be awarded a certificate, a “Young Achiever” pin badge and a voucher worth £200, to be spent within the Health and Well-being Centre, which will benefit all Lambeth College learners!
Sports Coach, Rytis Kumpelis, annually awards sports ambassadors who represent the College’s table tennis and football teams, and also for taking part in the College’s annual Super Strong Man/Woman Competitions. Awarded students are outstanding performers in the field of sports and are overall leading examples of the Health and Well-being Centre.
The Jack Petchey Award is the highest sports leader award at the College given to promising students within the Health and Well-being Centre. The scheme has proven to be one of the best means, and positive reinforcement, to inspire our learners; they have embraced the scheme with a huge omount of excitement and respect. The Award Scheme has helped to encourage more learners to participate in the Health and Well-being Centre programmes, and motivates them to perform well, excel and gain leadership skills. In addition, the Award Scheme has inspired the sports leaders to share their skills with other learners.
Every year the award winners are expected to attend the annual Jack Petchey Foundation presentation event to receive their boxed medallions.
