THESE four young people were among students of Bulwell Academy who received special awards at a ‘celebration evening’.

They are PEGAH MEHRVAND (pictured), who was selected as Young Entrepreneur of the Year, LEE TAYLOR (Young Citizen of the Year), HANNAH LEE (Senior Vice-Principal’s Trailblazer of the Year) and JAMES GROCOCK (Achievement Against Adversity Award).

A spokeswoman for the academy, on Squires Avenue, said the awards were a fitting way to acknowledge the initiative and hard work shown by students in the last year.

The ‘celebration evening’ was the second event of its kind at the academy. Teaching and support staff, as well as parents, were present.

It was also a chance to say farewell to the academy principal, Graham Roberts, who has now retired.
