The Samworth Church Academy is extremely proud of Year 7 pupil, Maja Antoskiewicz, who received a Children of Courage award on the 4th March 2019.
The commendation from Mansfield District Council and The Rotary Club of Mansfield, was presented during a luncheon held at Portland College, Mansfield. Maja is an active and enthusiastic pupil, participating in everything the Academy has to offer, from the usual lessons such as English and maths, piano lessons and an upcoming Bushcraft residential.
Maja’s achievements are made more impressive as she is registered blind. Miss Kerry Simons introduced Maja to those assembled, giving a heartfelt speech about how inspiring Maja is for everyone who meets her. Maja collected one award from the twelve issued to students from in and around Mansfield and District.
