It is that time of year, one of our absolute personal favourite moments, when we present our very special “Anne Newson” awards to one child from each year group.
The award was setup a few years ago, in tribute to one of our very loyal and dedicated school governors, who sadly passed away, and at her families request, for us to keep our school in her memory, the award was created. All our teachers and teaching assistants, get together for each year group, and choose one child, who they have felt that are role models, always smiling, always working hard, and even in the face of adversity, have continued to try to do their absolute best, and have have been an absolute inspiration to both their teachers, and their peers.
So this afternoon, we had a very emotional assembly, in attendance were the selected children’s parents who had been told earlier in the week, even though the children had no idea, and we heard from each of the children’s teacher exactly why they had been chosen, and the reasons were inspirational and moving, and all of our 600 children walked from assembly with their heads held high in pride for their friends.
The well deserved awards were presented to:
Millie Grubb, Year 3
Tyler Voice, Year 4
Alyssia Phelps, Year 5
Gabz Shackleton, Year 6
Well done to all of you, you have made our school very proud.
