Leeds West Academy


2019 Rotary Award Winners

Two Leeds West Academy students have been awarded the prestigious Leeds Rotary Citizenship Award.

Poppy and Mohsin were commended for being outstanding individuals in a ceremony held in the Banqueting Suite of Leeds Civic Hall, in the presence of the Lord Mayor of Leeds.

Poppy received the award, as she is a wonderful, friendly, hard-working, committed and reliable student. Poppy is always willing to stay after school to help events run smoothly and is always willing to help students.

Mohsin was also awarded the prestigious Rotary Citizenship Award for his amazing work as part of the Police Cadets and St. Johns Ambulance.

The Lord Mayor, who presented the awards, commented that the students were not only a credit to Leeds West Academy but to the Leeds community.

The annual Young Citizen Award Ceremony is organised by the Rotary Club of Leeds. More details about Rotary International can be found at their website http://www.rotary-ribi.org.
