MP DAMIAN Green was among guests at the Tow­ers Schools awards evening. A to­tal of 150 stu­dents at the school in Ken­ning­ton, Ash­ford, were pre­sented with in­di­vid­ual awards by Mr Green and chair­man of gov­er­nors, Rita Hawes. Mr Green told them: “I am re­ally im­pressed not only by the im­prove­ment in the exam re­sults but the wide range of other ac­tiv­i­ties that the stu­dents take part in. “Both the stu­dents and the staff are work­ing re­ally hard, and it shows. Those who knock Kent’s schools should come to the Tow­ers to see what is re­ally hap­pen­ing. “ The Tow­ers Academy Of Per­form­ing Arts pro­vided the evening’s en­ter­tain­ment. Amy Velvick (Year 12) sang What If and Fern Mur­phy (Year 8) gave a flute solo per­for­mance of Faure’s Si­cili­enne. The Se­nior Singers per­formed a four part har­mony of Queen’s Some­body to Love. Head teacher Malcolm Ram­sey spoke of the achieve­ments of the past year and re­ferred to a re­cent visit by in­spec­tors which de­scribed the school as ex­cel­lent.
