Congratulations to Grace Felstead; she is the Jack Petchey Award Winner for January 2016.
Grace was nominated for working amazingly hard to bridge the gap between people who can and cannot hear. She set up her own class in Earls Colne where once a week she teaches finger spelling and sign language for all ages and abilities. This enables deaf people, like herself, to have somewhere to go and build confidence and self-esteem, interacting with people who can hear. She is a conscientious and thoughtful member of the school community.
Mr. Panayi presented Grace with a Certificate, Badge and Cheque on Thursday 28 January 2016.
Very Well Done Grace!
