A STAFF member at Moor End Technology College has been recognised for her hard work at a national awards ceremony.
Madasara Khanum, who is the headteacher’s personal assistant at the Crosland Moor school, took fourth place and received a highly commended award in the SecEd Headteacher’s PA of the Year Awards 2007.
Madasara, 28, was the only PA in Kirklees to reach the final and was one of just 35 PAs from across the country who were shortlisted for it out of 120 nominations.
The awards took place at the Savoy Hotel in London on November 15, where finalists enjoyed a champagne reception and a three-course dinner.
Madasara was nominated for the awards by staff at Moor End because of her loyalty and contribution to school life.
Headteacher Jane Acklam said: “Madasara’s role is the glue that holds the whole school together. She is a fantastic role model for our Asian pupils and thoroughly deserves this award.”
