SPECIAL guest Dan Eley made his way to Weydon School to host its annual prize giving event.

Dan set up The Dan Eley Foundation after suffering a freak diving accident and now fundraises to actively help young people help themselves.

He gave an inspiring presentation at the celebratory event, where students win prizes for achievement within a subject area, for progress, effort and special ‘Weydon Academy Awards’.

The evening was hosted by the new head boy, Ethan Payne and new head girl, Lily Karaceylan, while winning students were congratulated by principal Jackie Sharman and the school’s chair of governors, Peter Brinsden.
