PUPILS across the city will be rewarded for their hard work this year at an awards ceremony.

The dazzling Pupil Oscars will celebrate Portsmouth pupils’ successes over the past academic year.

The nomination categories are attendance, service to the community, overcoming difficulties, curriculum achievement and contribution to school life.

There is also a special award for outstanding achievement.

Councillor Rob Wood, cabinet member for children and education at Portsmouth City Council, said: ‘The Pupil Oscars are a fantastic way to celebrate students’ achievements over the past year.

‘It also gets pupils involved in the nomination process, and lets them decide who they think should be put forward for each category.

‘I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate everyone that has been put forward for an award. You’ve all worked really hard and I hope you enjoy your special evening.’

School councils and individual pupils are all involved in choosing the nominations, one pupil per category per school.

The event, which takes place at the Kings Theatre tomorrow night, is supported by the Council of Portsmouth Students (CoPS), the Portsmouth Youth Parliament (PYP), and the Integrated Youth Support Service (IYSS).

The winner for each category will be awarded with a £50 gift voucher and a trophy.
