Headteacher’s Values Award Winner
The Headteacher’s Values Award was presented to Flynn Hunter, in Year 12. Flynn was jointly nominated by Mrs Lundberg and Dr Scott.
Mrs Lundberg wrote: “I would like to nominate Flynn Hunter, in Year 12, for the Headteacher’s Values Award. I attended an open evening at the 2040 Richmond Squadron Air Cadets this week. As well as talks from the Officers in charge, a number of Air Cadets presented to the audience of prospective recruits and their parents. Flynn, a Corporal Air Cadet, spoke confidently to the group about his experiences of flying with the Cadets and really engaged the young people. Not only was Flynn a pleasure to listen to and clearly knew his subject well, he was immaculately presented and treated his peers, commanding officers and the young people and their families with the utmost respect. He demonstrated many of the school’s values including independence, excellence, teamwork and respect. I am sure that together with the other cadets who also spoke very well, Flynn inspired a number of new recruits, many of whom were from Richmond School. He was a credit to himself, the cadets, his family and Richmond School and Sixth Form College.”
Dr Scott wrote: “I would like to nominate Flynn for the outstanding degree of respect and commitment to teamwork he has shown over recent weeks at Royal Air Force Cadets in preparation for an Open Evening at Richmond AFC. Not only has Flynn spent time and effort in preparing his presentation for the evening but he also gave up additional time helping to set up technical equipment and supporting his peers with their presentations. At the Open Evening, parents from Richmond School and neighbouring SFX, Risedale and Wensleydale Schools were impressed by his professionalism and confident delivery. Five parents informed me of his politeness in showing them to their seats and of his welcome at the door. Flynn has shown himself to be a worthy ambassador not only for Richmond AFC but also in his representation of Richmond School.”
