Student of the Week
Singing to Success
Congratulations to Ana who is Leeds City Academy's student of the week.
Ana came to Leeds in the Summer from Cluj Napoca, the largest city in the Transylvania region of Romania, and joined Leeds City Academy in Year 7 this year. In that time she has expanded her skills in English and Literacy, as well as driving forward great progress in all her subjects.
Ana said: "My English is getting better all the time. I really enjoy singing and am told that I sing very well. I used to sing solo in church in Romania, accompanied by pre-recorded music and I am really pleased that I have now been asked to sing for my church in Leeds. The music I sing is Christian pop. My favourite singer is Elena Gheorghe who is very famous in Romania."
Ms Foy said: "Well done to Ana who has really accelerated her English skills through reading, writing and singing. Ana has demonstrated phenomenal progress through a determination to work hard whilst contributing to the school community by supporting her friends in everything she does. Keep up the good work!"
Ana adds: "I am looking forward very much to having singing lessons here at Leeds City Academy as I really love music. I hope to take part in the school performances and shows too."
