One of our most precious and favorite time of our school year is when we present our Anne Newson and more recently our Spirit of Sport award.
Anne Newson was a governor at our school for a long time, and when she passed away her family wanted to honor her memory with a once a year award where one child from each year group are selected by the teachers unanimously for displaying outstanding contributions to one of our school values, or have overcome challenges, or have shown an amazing attitude to school.
We also present a “Spirit of Sport” award to one child from the whole of our school, for showing an outstanding attitude to all our sports, in a way that we as a school are proud of, this award is in memory of Ursula Woods who was a TA at our school for many years, who sadly passed away last year, and her family wanted to preserve her memory with this award.
We normally have a whole school assembly to present the awards, where the parents and carers of the selected children attend, and the children who have been selected are completely unaware that they have been chosen till the assembly, however because of the current pandemic we have not been able to have assemblies, so the Teacher of the student and the Lower / Upper school Deputy head surprised the children by turning up at their residence! It was a very emotional surprise and the moment was certainly not any less special with this unusual presentation, we would like to congratulate and thank the children who received the awards.
Anne Newson award for Year 3 went to Samuel, Year 4 to Gabriel, Year 5 to Joshua and Year 6 to Stela, and for Launchpad Izzy
Spirit of Sports award went to Kaylee from Year 5
Congratulations to you all.
