Leeds East Academy


Student of the Week

Outstanding Sportsmanship & Leadership

Each week, Leeds East Academy celebrates progress and achievement in our regular Student of the Week feature.

This week, we are delighted to honour the achievements of an outstanding student who has excelled in sport.

Ms Precious, Behaviour Modification Leader, said: "Well done to Byron who demonstrated outstanding leadership skills to take our rugby team to second place in a tournament last week; Byron led the warm up and strategic team talks after each game, with Leeds Rhinos' coaches being very impressed with his organisation skills in addition to his playing technique. They commented how Leeds East Academy were the most organised, well-drilled team - which was down to Byron's inspirational leadership."

Mr Stokes said: "Well done Byron. Not only have you shown great talent on the field, but you have also demonstrated outstanding tactical skills and leadership ability. The manner in which you brought out the best in the team is truly admirable and I hope you will continue to demonstrate this within sports and all your other subjects. Congratulations on bringing home a second-place victory for Leeds East Academy."
