Wilmslow Express - - NEWS - Paul Har­ri­son

THE fan­tas­tic achieve­ments made by our schools are to be cel­e­brated in the Manch­ester Schools Awards.

The awards, be­ing run for the sec­ond year, are open to all pri­mary, sec­ondary and in­de­pen­dent schools across the re­gion.

There are nine cat­e­gories and nom­i­na­tions can come from the schools them­selves or staff, gov­er­nors, par­ents or stu­dents.

Among the win­ners last year were Ash­ton-onMersey School, for its fundrais­ing work, and Moor­field Pri­mary School in Stock­port for its veg­etable patch project.

El­iz­a­beth Seers. from the Heaton School in Hea- ton Moor, was named Head­teacher of the Year.

Events manager Suzanne Davies said: “The awards were a great suc­cess last year.

“It was fan­tas­tic for us to be able to re­ward the great pupils, teach­ers and sup- port staff and cel­e­brate the best in ed­u­ca­tion across the re­gion. Nom­i­na­tions aren’t just open to teach­ers or pupils we are en­cour­ag­ing en­tries from any one in­volved in ed­u­ca­tion.

“It’s a great op­por­tu­nity to thank, re­ward or cel­e­brate peo­ple en­gaged in learn­ing.”

The Manch­ester Col­lege will once again be spon­sor­ing the awards. Prin­ci­pal Lisa O’Lough­lin said: “We are ex­cited to be in­volved with the Manch­ester School Awards for the sec­ond time.

“It is im­por­tant to cham­pion the ex­cel­lent work go­ing on in our re­gion and we are very proud to spon­sor this cel­e­bra­tion for schools and their pupils.”
