Last night was not only our Year 9 Guided Choices event, but also the first Golden Apple Education Awards, held by the Hull Daily Mail - and Malet Lambert nominees walked away with TWO trophies!
Head of Creative & Expressive Arts, Mr Cook, collected an award after being nominated for Innovation in the Arts, for students' amazing art sculptures.
The sculptures can be seen all over the school and also in the local community, and are created by Year 10 & Year 11 students for their exam art projects.
This initiative, by Mr Cook and the art department staff, has helped create a unique identity for the school, a talking point for visitors and raised achievement in the arts at Malet above the national average.
The second award for a Malet Lambert representative went to Year 9 student Harry for Most Enterprising Student of the Year.
Harry has had a whirlwind year as a young entrepreneur with his tourism card game, Hulls Top Trips.
He won the Badgers Sett Challenge 2013, visited Downing Street and met Lord Young, spoke in front of hundreds of business professionals and students at the Youth Enterprise Summit and Global Entrepreneurship Week 2014, and shook hands with royalty when Prince Andrew visited the school to experience enterprise activity in Hull.
Now, his year of success has been cemented by winning this award.
In runner-up position was another talented Malet Lambert student, Loui Fowler.
Loui was nominated for his strong presence in the local business community since winning the Badgers Sett Challenge in 2012.
Since then he has sold his main product - expandable mini-banners - to a variety of sports teams and events, and now continues to expand his product range while studying for A-levels at Wyke College.
Well done to everyone!
