Well done to Hollie!

Well done to Hollie!

St John’s Sixth Form student Hollie has been named as one of York College’s students of the year.

The prestigious Vocational Student of the Year title was awarded to Hollie who excelled in her studies on the Foundation Information and Creative Technology course.

As well as excelling in her studies, Hollie metevery deadline and submitted excellent assignments.

The college noted: “Hollie has performed incredibly well on the Level 2 Information & Creative Technology course, producing work of an excellent quality and achieving distinctions in every unit.

“Her attitude and approach inside and outside the classroom has been superb and she has taken pride in everything she has does. On her study days Hollie also studies at St John’s Catholic School for the Deaf therefore, unlike a lot of students, she works full-time, 5 days a week.

“She also travels a near 300 mile round-trip at weekends to go home (requiring her to set off at 5am to attend College on Monday!) Her commitment and effort has never wavered.

“Hollie has studied English alongside her main study programme and again, she has been 100 per cent committed to her studies, doing everything asked of her and more.  Hollie is also overcoming and improving her listening ability which is allowing her to produce excellent quality work. Everyone is delighted that Hollie is progressing onto the Level 3 Extended Certificate in IT in September.”

A huge well done Hollie – everyone at St John’s is so proud of you!
