Rotary club awards

AS PART of its project to reward young people who have made a valuable contribution to their schools and communities, the International Rotary Club of Almancil has presented awards to five students at the Vilamoura International School.

Renata Costa, in year 12, achieved five A grades in her GCSE exams and also raised money for the Cancer Association. Marie Whitfield will sit her GCSEs next year despite her forced absence from school when her father was ill. She is popular with students and staff alike.

Sara Wahnon, who now studies in Lisbon, was an outstanding student at Vilamoura and was always willing to work beyond the required levels. Kieran Lynn is a hardworking student, a great help to students and staff alike, and spends a great deal of his free time raising funds for charity.

Rotary Vice President, Peter Hinze, outlined each student’s achievements and presented them with their awards. Marie Whitfield, as runner-up in her group in the Algarve, received an iPod, a pen, a calculator, and the Rotary certificate.

Renata, Keiran and Sara each received a pen, a calculator and a certificate, and Liliana Domingos, who was unable to be present, was named as the winner of the Portuguese section and was awarded an iPod, a pen and calculator, and a certificate.
