Dual honours for Eastleigh College team
Eastleigh College Chief Executive, Tony Lau-Walker and College House Manager Tracey McAdam, were this month presented with their Queens Honours by The Princess Royal at an investiture ceremony held at Windsor Castle.
Tony, who was recognised in the 2013 Queen's Birthday Honours list for his outstanding services to further education said:
"The day at Windsor Castle with The Princess Royal was full of splendour and ceremony. It was well organised and made everyone there feel special. It was a real celebration of achievement for the seventy-nine recipients, their families and friends."
Tracey, who was recognised in the 2013 Queen's New Year's Honours list for her outstanding services to education said:
"I really enjoyed the investiture at Windsor Castle. It was wonderful to talk to Princess Anne, who was very interested in Eastleigh College and its work at College House".
Highly appreciative of the honour and occasion, Tony added:
"I was so pleased that both Tracey and I received our awards on the same day. The Princess Royal noted that two recipients came from the same college and asked how special Eastleigh College was to achieve double recognition in the Honours List.
"We both thank all the staff who work so hard at the College to deliver a quality provision and succeed so well in meeting individual learner needs".
The Prime Minister announced that GCSE and A level exams would not take place this summer, and that vocational examinations would continue as planned. We understand how disappointing and concerning this news is and the College seeks to reassure all learners, parents, guardians and employers that the College will seek to ensure no learner is disadvantaged and that we will work to provide as much information and guidance as possible as soon as information is available to us.
