College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London Games Development student Andre Ferreira attended a special reception at the House of Commons on Wednesday (15 January) to celebrate the positive contribution young people are making in Haringey.
The inaugural event was to welcome many of Haringey’s outstanding teenagers as PYTHONS, which stands for Positive Youth Thriving in Haringey Obtaining Notable Success.
Seventeen year old Andre, a former pupil form Park View Academy, won a Silver medal at the World Skills UK final in November. He spent three long days competing against learners from all around the country to win his coveted prize.
His hard work has now also earned him the role of a PYTHON which means that he will be soon running workshops in schools across Haringey ensuring young people have access to real-life positive role models, inspiring them to achieve.
Jane O’Neill, Interim Principal and Chief Executive said: “I am delighted Positive Youth Haringey has recognised Andre’s wonderful achievements as a Games Developer. I hope he influences many young people to follow in his footsteps.”
