13 July 2017
On Tuesday 4th July Alex McGowan received the Longbenton Rotary Award for Service to the Community. Alex is currently a year 12 student who has contributed a massive amount to the school, which includes in-class support, lunchtime supervision, technical assistance in musical and drama productions and support on open nights and parents evenings. In addition to this he has worked since October 2014 with the 2344 Longbenton Air Cadet Squadron. He has achieved the rank of corporal and spends many evenings and weekends training younger cadets and fund-raising. Alex thoroughly deserved this award that is given each year to a student in the school who has shown excellent service to his or her local community. Well done, Alex !
