Congraulations to the recipients of the 2014 Student of the Year awards who were as follows…
Alton (senior) – Eoin Hosking (Pictured above)
Alton (junior) – Taran Sangha
Aldershot (senior and Junior) – Steven Pulanco and Josh Ordonez
Guildford (senior) - Maxim Boyce Davies
Guildford (junior) – Sebastian Clayton
Eoin received this year’s award due to his efforts and spirit with regards to competition, his constant drive to push himself in class and his respect and etiquette towards his seniors.
Taran was recognised as he had a bit of a setback when he failed to gain promotion to Blue Belt earlier in the year. But he came back stronger, retested and passed. He also has excellent “dojang etiquette” and is an excellent example to the other juniors in the class of how to behave.
Steven is another example of a student with good Taekwon-Do etiquette, but he was also chosen because of how much he has improved over the last twelve months.
Josh is another of the junior’s that didn’t quite make it at his last grading, but he is back in class and persevering, and is also a good example to the other junior students in his class.
Maxim received his award this year for simply coming on leaps and bounds in terms of physical improvement and just generally being involved with “all things Taekwon-Do”.
Sebastian was chosen by Miss Haymes, 2nd degree (who is currently running the Guildford Junior class). He is always very well behaved and always makes an effort. He always gets on with learning his terminology early on and listens well in class. Another great example for his class mates.
Our other classes in Farnborough, Fleet and Church Crookham haven’t yet matured enough to have a student of the year, but I think that will change in 2015.
