AWARDS for kindness, friendship and helpfulness were presented to pupils at a special end of year school celebration.
Students at Beaumont Hill Primary Academy, part of The Education Village Academy Trust, Darlington, were rewarded for being part of ‘an awesome year’ at the school’s annual record of achievement event.
The specialist academy, which supports children with a range of abilities from profound and multiple learning difficulties to severe and complex needs, welcomed hundreds of parents, carers, family and friends to an afternoon celebration, hosted by head teacher Tess Wright, to watch the children receive their trophies, certificates and awards.
“It is wonderful to be able to welcome so many people to Beaumont Hill Primary Academy to once aging celebrate the wonderful achievements of our pupils,” said Mrs Wright.
“It has been extremely difficult to choose who should receive an award; our teachers are very passionate and they all wanted their students to win.
“I would like thank all our pupils for their hard work – they have wowed us all again this year – our teachers for their dedication and passion and all the mams and dads for their continued support. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your children’s lives, they really are amazing young people.”
Recognition was given to winners and runners up in a host of academic and sporting subjects including maths, writing, reading, computing and swimming, alongside certificates for attitude, behaviour, sharing, and attendance.
Entertainment was provided by the school choir, singing A Million Dreams from The Greatest Showman, before the Year 6 leavers sang Count on Me by Bruno Mars, followed by a whole school sing along to You’ve Got a Friend in Me from the movie Toy Story.
“I’d like to thank our Year 6 pupils and wish them all the best for their move to secondary school in September,” added Mrs Wright.
“They have been an awesome year group and although they will be leaving us they will always be a part of the Beaumont Hill Primary Academy family.”
