Celebrating the achievements of our SHINE youngsters

The achievements of Year 5 pupils from Heath View Academy, Greenhill Primary, St. Michael’s CE Academy and Flanshaw J&I were recognised on Saturday during a special 'SHINE' celebration.

Over the last 10 'Serious Fun on Saturday' sessions, the youngsters had relished taking part in fun and engaging initiatives touching on all areas of the curriculum including Science, Food Technology, Music, Drama, Sport and Geography.

Student-led by Sixth Formers from QEGS and WGHS, and with the support of staff from both schools, the smiles and excitement of the visitors week in and week as they fully engaged in the activities on offer was contagious.

There was no better way to conclude this inaugural SHINE initiative than with a morning of celebrating all the youngsters achievements - with individual prizes- in front of their teachers and families.
