Jack Petchey Winners 2024

Meet the LAET Jack Petchey Winners of 2024!

Every year, the Jack Petchey Foundation celebrates outstanding students and staff who go the extra mile to make a difference within the school and community. Each winner has now won significant funds they can invest back in the community however they choose. In previous years winners have spent their grants on dance hoodies, girls' football kits and equipment for specialised science experiments and bake sales for charitable clean water initiatives.

Meet this year's winners of the Achievement Award: Saya, Daniella, Rafiul, Adam, Andrei, and Layla. And let's not forget our exceptional Leader Award recipient, Mr. Matthew Inniss. Their dedication and hard work truly set them apart.
