Pupils were rewarded for being innovative and for working hard in the community, and if they regularly take part in a hobby that benefits the community.

Ms Dinenage was proud to present the pupils with their awards and said: ‘It is wonderful to see young people taking part in activities which will help them become citizens who are mindful of our community and actively involved in society.

‘This initiative encourages young people to take part in extra-curricular activities from an early age and I was delighted to hear from all the pupils.’
