IMPRESSIVE pupils from Gainsborough’s North County Primary School were awarded certificates for showing remarkable progress.
The school on Ropery Road present pupils with certificates at the end of each term to congratulate them for coming a long way – both academically and in personal development.
Plenty of parents were on hand too to provide applause and encouragement as their children were presented with their awards and praise.
Headteacher Mrs Julie James said that it was important to celebrate that the children were coming a long way.
“We reward the pupils for doing great work in reading, maths, personal learning and they also get certificates for politeness and being helpful and friendly,” she said.
“We like to recognise their social and emotional development as well as their academic progress.”
Mrs James continued: “It’s not always about those pupils who are the best at certain subjects, but it’s about recognising the huge amount of effort that all of the children put into their work.”
“They are all very eager and keen and they love discovering all sorts of new things and they really enjoy hands-on learning.”
“The children are all very supportive of each other and have very good and positive relationship with all of the adults in school too.”
Dozens of proud and beaming parents were also in attendance to cheer on their children as they collected their well-deserved awards.
“The school is very well supported by parents,” said Mrs James.
“The scene of plenty of happy mums and dads in the school hall is a regular site.”
“We’re very much a school at the heart and centre of the community.”
Mrs James added that congratulations were due to every student at North County Primary School, for their relentless hard work and improvement.
“I’d like to say a huge well done to the staff for their remarkable talent and effort, and congratulations to every single of our children for all of their achievements and individual successes,” she said.
“Please keep up this momentum and build on this to achieve greatness in your lives.”
She added: “I’m sure that you will, but please keep up the great work.”
“We are all very proud of you here at North County.”
