Tejan Patel, from Tapton School, was nominated for the Inspirational Ambassador category in the North region.
“Tejal Patel has been a true ambassador for girls gymnastics at Tapton school this year. She has committed to working with year 7 and year 8 gymnastics during lunchtime practices every week and has been a true role model to those students, along with Holly. They encourage the girls to come and support all students whatever ability during the session. Their coaching knowledge has significantly improved and they are both very competent gymnastics coaches. When the teacher that was taking the sessions was unwell for a number of weeks these students carried the club on without being asked and ensured pupils were ready for the big annual movement evening event they were working towards. The students in the clubs look up to them and love being coached by these girls. They are true ambassadors for gymnastics and Tapton school and we are very proud of them.”
