Leeds students celebrate at the Diana Award

Sixth form students from St. Mary’s Menston, met Prince William last week at the Diana Award ‘Inspire Day’ in South Shields. Kavi Appuhamy and Chloe Tindale were invited to the event because of their school’s pioneering work in South Africa, using sport to promote education, health, leadership and global citizenship, which is now in its seventh year.Image

Kavi and Chloe were part of the St. Mary’s team of students to visit South Africa this summer where they were responsible for mentoring Zulu students in leadership. Both students were grateful for the Royal family’s recognition of the charity.

The future of the project looked bright as Kavi expressed that “speaking to Prince William and attending the Diana Award event, I can truly say that I have been inspired and empowered to strive to do more for the development of the Bambisanani Partnership which has received huge admiration.”
