Celebrate! - our 2nd Spring Award Ceremony!

We had another fantastic opportunity to do what we do best this week, celebrate! We hosted our second Spring Gold Award ceremony and welcomed 400 children, parents and carers and school staff to the Town Hall to celebrate their achievements.

Families visit our marketplace full of Learning Destinations

Children from Mansel Primary receive their awards

These ceremonies mark the first time we have hosted our CU primary school ceremonies at the University, and had children in their Hallam sponsored University style caps and gowns there too! This change has been made as a result of fantastic partnership work with Sheffield Hallam and our current wider consultation/pilot scheme which will hopefully inform our award ceremony structure in the future. It was fantastic to see so many children looking so smart and proud, and its provided some brilliant photos!

All ready for the start of the ceremony!
