Your Heroes Awards Ceremony
We are delighted to announce that we were awarded "School of the Year" at the Your Heroes award ceremony this evening!
On Wednesday 27th January 2016, we were invited to the Ramada Plaza in Southport to celebrate the achievements of amazing community heroes. Dignitaries and people from across Sefton and West Lancashire were invited to the ‘Your Heroes’ award ceremony, hosted by Sky TV Presenter Neil Newton.
There were six categories, which ranged from School of the Year, Young Heroes, Sporting Heroes, Teams, individuals and the most prestigious award of the night, Hero of Heroes.
Our school were delighted to win ‘School of the Year’ for the following reasons:
Teachers and pupils at Churchtown Primary raised £1,354.68 for charity with a day of dancing. The event, which took place on 'do something funny for money day,' began with a 'wake and shake' in the playground led by Miss Lucas and Mr King. Year six sports' ambassadors, staff, children and parents all perfected their dance moves for a 'lets get ready to rumble' routine. Miss Lucas and Mr King both led a dance- a-thon in the playground, to hits such as Uptown Funk, YMCA and Let's Gets Ready To Rumble.
The school's sports' ambassadors danced for a straight five hours, and we raised lots of money on the day.
To date we have raised £876.68 from class donations, £178 from donation pages and £300 from tickets sales for Night At The Musicals.
Two years ago we made links with Community Link Foundation and have raised money for the charity through numerous events including our charity week last year.
Our continuous work for the Young Carers and CHUGGS along with sportability awareness days continue to add to the excellent support for groups of children at Churchtown Primary School.
Thank you to everyone for all their support
