BIG-hearted kids who have backed a foodbank and helped spruce up their neighbouring church have been rewarded for their efforts.
Year 5 class 10KC at Treeton C of E Primary School were presented with the school’s Good Citizenship trophy by borough councillor Amy Brookes.
Curriculum support manager Alison Hallewell said: “This is a new award for our school, which Cllr Brookes has kindly donated and she will present it every year to a person or group in school who work for their community or support a charitable cause.”
This year, Class 10KC have taken part in the Archbishop of York’s Youth Trust Award Scheme.
This has involved collecting donations for a local food bank, attending St Helen’s Church in Treeton every Thursday to support the church coffee mornings and help with spring cleaning the church and organising a prize raffle in school, which raised £300 for the church restoration fund and the coffee morning group.
Ms Hallewell said: “The project has enabled the children to meet new people in our local community and work to benefit others, and Cllr Brookes felt that this hard work should be recognised.”
