Today, Bright World's Directors launched the brand new WOW Award. The award recognises the importance of thanking our hardworking staff throughout the year, as each event passes. The first ever winner of this award has already been named.
"The Bright World team is extremely hard-working. They do a difficult job very well and this is very much proven by the large percentage of students who remain with us throughout their boarding school careers and the great feedback we get.
The guardianship academic year is a never-ending cycle of events, many of which overlap. If we don't stop to reflect and congratulate ourselves we can easily just go through the entire year without reviewing all the great work that we do".
These were the words of Bright World Founder and Managing Director, Lana Foster, earlier today. With this in mind, Lana, along with the other company directors, devised the Bright World WOW Awards, which aim to recognise a particularly bright star in the team on each event during the year. There are 12 main events each year which include Arrival and Departure coordination.
The first winner was named as Leanne Poole, Travel and Accommodation Manager at Bright World. With Leanne's scrutinous checking of all our arrival arrangements with taxi companies and her fastidious eye for detail, Bright World has now welcomed ALL our students back, with absolutely NO avoidable issues. This is a superb achievement and one well worth stopping and recognising and certainly deserves a big WOW from us all.
Leanne was awarded a certificate and voucher during our Week Ahead group meeting today and received a rapturous applause from all her colleagues. The next award will be handed out following the first exeat of the year, so watch this space for the winner in early October.
The first exeat weekend is fast approaching. Bright World offers guardianship at UK boarding schools nationwide, and has great host families in the UK, some of whom are still available to host. For more information on how to apply for guardianship contact us today.
"Bright World is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment."
The second winner of the Bright World WOW Award 2018/19 goes to our Accommodation and Travel Manager, Fi Williamson for outstanding work in successfully placing students with host families.
With students from the UK, Africa, China, Hong Kong, Korea, The Middle East, Eastern and Western Europe, Bournemouth Collegiate School A-Level Boarders have achieved record breaking results this year with a fantastic 74% of grades at A*-B, and 96* A*-C.
