TV presenter Anthea Turner and former St David’s College pupil Jack Harley-Walsh presented an award on behalf of the school at the British Dyslexia Association last weekend.
The Gala Awards dinner took place at the historic venue of Drapers’ Hall, in London.
For the first time the school has sponsored the St David’s College Cadogan Award through the BDA for a young person who has shown resilience through a challenging educational journey due to dyslexia.
Jack Harley-Walsh graduated from SDC 18 months ago and is in his second year studying automotive design at Swansea University.
He was chosen to present the award on behalf of the school as he is a role model for resilience and is a past winner of the BDA Dyslexia Young Person’s Award winner three years ago.
This year’s award winner was Jonathan Middelditch, a pupil at Moor House School, in Oxted, in Surrey.
Rev Tim Hall, who attended the event with headmaster Andrew Russell and his wife, Kate, said: “It really was a spectacular night in a spectacular venue.
“Hundreds of people were there all passionate about children with dyslexia.
“Jack’s speech was hugely inspirational and he did St David’s College proud.”
