A SELECTION of Thurrock’s “High Achievers” officially recognised by the Mayor of Thurrock and other dignitaries.
The event was part of the Full Council meeting which took place in the council chamber, Civic Offices.
Recent outstanding examination successes were recognised by Thurrock Council with the Mayor of Thurrock presenting a certificate and gift to each of the 20 students in front of the Chief Executive, Councillors, friends and family.
Two pupils from each of the borough’s secondary schools were nominated by their head teacher who felt their hardwork and commitment should be recognised.
The Mayor Thurrock, Cllr Yash Gupta said: “These young people are a shining example of what you can achieve when you work hard.
“It is important that they, and the many other young people in Thurrock, are told how well they are doing and for the community to appreciate this”.
