Barker Associates is actively engaged in promoting student and staff achievements in and beyond the classrooms. Throughout the year we support various activities that encourage and celebrate student accomplishments.
This year we are proud to support The Academies Enterprise Trust’s – A Festival of Remarkable Lives initiative, Leigh Academies Trust’s Annual Fundraising Cricket Gala and Ormiston Academies Annual Awards.
The Academies Enterprise Trust’s (AET) Festival of Remarkable Lives sits at the heart of AET realising its vision: to inspire each and every child to choose a remarkable life. A programme of competitions has been launched which aims to provide AET pupils with a sense of purpose and to discover a world of possibility, that many would not normally have the opportunity to experience. The programme ends with a grand finale on 4th July 2019 at Guildhall, Northampton.
Barker Associates are sponsoring a Remarkable Volunteer/Community Award. To achieve this Award students are challenged to take part in or develop a community event or project that will help others to live a better quality of life, and through this, contribute to a more remarkable world.
The Leigh Academies Trust (LAT) holds an Annual Fundraising Charity Cricket Festival, where LAT XI team play a round of Kwik Cricket against legendary Professional Cricket Association Masters. This event to be held on 5th July 2019 provides an opportunity for LAT students to build and develop their confidence; skills and resilience they need to apply for higher studies and apprentice programmes. The wealth of opportunities available through funds raised enables LAT students to build their own knowledge of work and importantly make informed decisions about their future options.
Barker Associates are pleased to be sponsoring the LAT XI team kits at this event.
Earlier in the year, Barker Associates jointly sponsored with EO Consulting a Creativity Award at the Ormiston Academies Trust Annual Awards . The Award was presented to two outstanding students –Posy O’Rourke, Year 12 pupil of City of Norwich School and Isla Jade Nelson, Year 6 pupil of Herman Academy, both of whom demonstrated an impressive talent in creative and performing arts.
Since 2010 Barker Associates have sponsored a Barker Associates Special Award at Anglia Ruskin University, Chelmsford degree students. The Award honours the student who achieves the best overall results for Whole Life Asset Management on the Building Surveying course.
Barker Associates are proud to be involved in all of these activities, we know such support and encouragement goes a long way in making make a difference.
