A Bishop Vaughan School student has been nominated for a national mentoring award.
Kaitlyn, a GCSE student at the school, was nominated for the Brightside Mentoring Awards after participating in an e-mentoring scheme run by the Mullany Fund. The Mullany Fund is a life science education charity that breaks barriers to social mobility. The Fund has worked with BVS over the last two years to offer an e-mentoring scheme to support students interested in life science careers. Kaitlyn took part in the scheme earlier this year and was nominated by her mentor in recognition of her enthusiasm, positive attitude and commitment to the scheme.
Kaitlyn will be attending a ceremony in London next month, where her hard work will be celebrated along with other nominees. Miss Siddika, the school’s MAT co-ordinator, said: ‘The staff and students at BVS are delighted at Kaitlyn’s achievement which demonstrates the hard work and effort she puts into all she does. Kaitlyn reflects the best of BVS and we are all rooting for her to win next month.’
