Still time to en­ter ed­u­ca­tion awards

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - 24 Hours -

SOME great schools do­ing won­der­ful things across the city have been put for­ward for the ET’s Ed­u­ca­tion Awards – but there is still time to sub­mit your nom­i­na­tions.

This year is the 10th an­niver­sary of our awards, and we want to make them the best yet. To do that we need your help, as we need you to tell us about all the good work go­ing on in schools in and around Peter­bor­ough.

We want to know about all the un­sung he­roes in ed­u­ca­tion, be it the care­taker who is an in­te­gral part of school staff, or the young­ster who has shone in the arts.

One school which has been nom­i­nated is Queen’s Drive In­fant School, who have been put for­ward for the En­vi­ron­ment Award.

Jill Fos­ter, who works for Peter­bor­ough En­vi­ron­ment City Trust, nom­i­nated them.

She said: “The school has made a ma­jor com­mit­ment to be­come a Sus­tain­able School. They are ad­dress­ing all the ar­eas of the Depart­ment for Ed­u­ca­tion Sus­tain­able School Frame­work.

“They held a two-day Sus­tain­abil­ity is Fun event where the pupils took part in ac­tiv­i­ties on all as­pects of sus­tain­abil­ity, in­clud­ing re­cy­cling, en­ergy use re­duc­tion, gar­den­ing, tra­di­tional play­ground games to en­cour­age more out­door play and road safety.

“They have limited space avail­able for a school gar­den but are grow­ing in pots and other con­tain­ers.”

Hav­ing been nom­i­nated, Queen’s Drive In­fant School could be among those at­tend­ing the glit­ter­ing awards cer­e­mony which will take place at the Key The­atre, Peter­bor­ough on Wed­nes­day, July 14.

As well as the pres­ti­gious ti­tle, the win­ner of each cat­e­gory will take home £250 for their school.

ET deputy edi­tor Nigel Thorn­ton said: “Our Ed­u­ca­tion Awards are a fan­tas­tic way to recog­nise both achieve­ment and ef­fort from pupils and staff mem­bers alike.

“Nom­i­nat­ing a school, group or in­di­vid­ual couldn’t be eas­ier as we have both paper and on­line forms avail­able, so we hope lots of read­ers will get in­volved.”

To en­ter the awards, fill out the form on this page, and send it to Linda Pritchard, Ed­u­ca­tion Awards, Peter­bor­ough Evening Tele­graph, 57 Pri­est­gate, Peter­bor­ough, PE1 1JW, by 5pm on Wed­nes­day, June 30.
