Neale-Wade student Ania Uribarri-Daniels has hit the gold standard.

The Year 8 pupil is the first ever student to earn the March school’s Gold Ambassador Award.

Student Ambassador Awards were launched at the Neale-Wade in September 2013 with the aim of encouraging pupils.

The three levels, bronze, silver and gold encourage students to participate in a host of leadership activities both in and out of the classroom.

Activities range from team leadership to exemplary attendance and participation in extracurricular events.
