Lions in Service Awards

In this morning’s assembly, Deric Quaile, President of the Guildford Lions Club presented seven of the girls with their Young Leaders in Service awards, taking the number of awards completed by pupils at the school to 12. Well done to Sixth Formers Bethan, Katie, Holly G, Jinyan, Emma, Wing Sze and Chloe!

The girls did a variety of activities including one to one respite for disabled children, teaching French and Chinese as foreign languages, marshaling at park runs, assisting in the school library, undertaking voluntary work in charity shops, and supervising junior boarding.

The Lions Young Leaders in Service Awards (also known as YLiS) recognise young people between the ages of 11 and 18 for their community service in a 12-month period. They receive a Bronze (up to 50 hours), Silver (up to 100 hours) or Gold (100 or more hours) award. This is an internationally recognised award and encourages young people to volunteer their time to help others in their community.
