Orchard Hill College wins The Don Rowan Memorial Trophy!

A few months ago, students and staff from Lomond House were nominated for “Disability School/Group of the Year” for all the amazing work that they do at Streatham Leisure Centre every Wednesday.

Frank, Lecturer said “it was so nice to be selected from such a large group of schools and colleges. The sessions on Wednesdays have been my favourite of the last year.”

Last week students and staff from Lomond House were invited to the Oval for “The Cricket Society Spring Lunch and Award Ceremony”. At this event, two students, Jordan and Alfie were called up to stage to receive the Don Rowan Memorial Trophy, which is an award given by Surrey Cricket Foundation. They were given a very impressive trophy and were able to say a few words each.

The awards host said “Orchard Hill College was nominated for being the most outstanding college in using cricket to help those with special needs. This award is recognition of the commitment and enthusiasm Orchard Hill College students have shown and acknowledges all of their hard work.”

Kerry, Head of Centre, said “We are very honoured to receive this award. I’m so proud of the two students that received the award for having the confidence to go up on the stage and address the attendees!”

Well done to all of our students and staff who won this award!
