Winner Christian Hacker

Young Leader - Christian Hacker

This award is for a young person who has worked with younger or older children in developing activities or services, such as after-school or weekend clubs.

An exceptional young man who consistently gives up a lot of his time in order to support his school. He is quick to help others and rather than join in with the school’s wake and shake, he listens to readers, plays maths games or supports children in maths targets each morning, even though he loves dancing. He has demonstrated and encouraged others to participate in ballet as he is incredibly passionate about this and is an excellent ballet dancer himself.

He actively seeks out ways in which he can make the school a better place for others; he visits each classroom and asks for feedback after class council meetings and takes this feedback to the school council.

He is an exceptional role model for others; children are keen to join the school council because of his enthusiasm and passion.

The award was presented by the Melksham Community Youth Officer, Ceri Evans.
