Every year, a Good Citizenship Award is presented to one of the pupils. A selected panel from the school considers a number of guidelines before choosing the best candidate for the award.
Before presenting the award at this year’s ceremony, PC Whittaker explained to the audience the reasons behind the panel’s choice:
“Looking back at this school year we have seen this pupil grow and make some extraordinary changes. His aim was, like most young people, to try and do well at the school and make some friendships along the way. He has achieved all of this and much more. Along with his educational, sports and community attainments which have been mentioned earlier, there have been notable acts of kindness and empathy. For example, we observed him helping new pupils settle in when they arrived at the school, noticed him being polite and friendly when meeting people and giving up his own time to feed and take care of the school’s chickens even during the cold winter days.
He is a highly respected member of our school community because he thinks and puts others before himself. The effort and attitude that he has shown throughout the year and his enthusiasm to learning is remarkable.
Community Police, along with the school, would like to present the Good Citizenship Award to Bradley.”
Very well done, Bradley!
