The Simon Richards Award Presentation

On Monday 23rd May 2016  the school Council launched the Simon Richards Award In memory of Simon Richards.

Earlier in the year the School Council and some Year 5 children set up a shop of unwanted toys, to raise money.  They ran the shop in their own break and lunchtimes and raised over £300.  They wanted the money to help purchase something in Simon’s memory.

We commissioned and purchased a memorial plaque and created ‘The Simon Richards Award’ – this will be presented on a termly basis to children who use their talents for the benefit of others.

Anita, Simon’s Mother, was present during the assembly to endorse the Award.
