A champion of diversity, a talented dancer and a rising musical star are just three of the youngsters who are set to be recognised at a Camden awards ceremony.
The Jack Petchey achievement awards – taking place at the Camden Centre on Wednesday, November 8 – will see a host of youngsters rewarded for their hard work over the past year.
Camden School for Girls has two students on the roster who are on the head girls team – Abi Adelekun and Calla-Rae Brennan Marle.
Abi, who has worked to raise awareness about LGBT rights at the school in the past, is involved with both the orchestra at Camden School for Girls and the Camden Youth Orchestra.
As well as running occasional sessions at the school’s feminist society, Abi recently took the role of dedicating each day of black history month to a prominent figure in the black community.

Calla has also been making waves in musical spheres after excelling at a series of concerts, as well as being in charge of the school’s ‘battle of the bands’ competition, which helped to raise £7,000.
Parliament Hill School students Primavera Jones and Nadia Djilali – both 12 – have also been recognised. Primavera has the most ‘parli points’ in her tutor group and has been a dedicated member of the library action group. Nadia has wowed staff with her dancing talents, as well as helping fellow students who are struggling at the discipline.

William Ellis School student Juan-Angel Tamoyo’s musical talent has seen him record pieces in a professional studio, while fellow student Jamil Hasan has received more than 300 praise points from his teachers, “which is a reflection of his overall attitude to school life”.
Cagla Akis of Maria Fidelis Convent School was nominated for the award due to her hard work and dedication to science. Despite not having the same experience as others in her applied science A-level class, she has been working diligently to catch up with the other students. During the placement at the Wellcome Trust, she became interested in student’s mental health and wants to help develop support for younger students at school.
Also up for an award is fellow student Samira Rahman, who continues to surpass her target gardes through “hard work and dedication”.
