DEDICATED youngsters have been recognised for their positive attitude at an end of year awards ceremony.

Fens Primary School, in Mowbray Road, Hartlepool, celebrated the achievements of top performing pupils, including those who excel in sport, by handing out trophies.

Amy Jackson, a Year 6 pupil, was awarded the best sporting attitude trophy for her impressive performances on the girls’ football team.

Her teachers say the 11-year-old is always pushing her classmates in games and shows great leadership, especially towards the end of school football matches.

Benjamin Hart, 11, also a Year 6 pupil, was given the Bill Ogden Award for his all-round positive attitude and contribution to school life.

The award is in memory of Mr Ogden who was heavily involved in community life on the Fens estate.

Year 6 pupil Joe Tyers, 11, was handed the sports personality of the year award to recognise his all-round contribution to school sport including his performances on the football team and in PE.

Sporty Leo Neville, also a Year 6 pupil, is a keen boxer and was recognised with the community sports award.

The school’s girls football team was also recognised for their performances over the past academic year.

Meanwhile, children from every year group from the nursery right up to Year 6 were also awarded at the ceremony with trophies for their positive attitude to learning.

Claire Atkinson, community links co-ordinator at the school, said: “We are really proud of all of our children.

“It is always difficult to decide which children should be recognised because there are so many little stars at the school.

“I would like to say a big well done to those that received trophies.”

The achievement awards were organised by teacher Elaine Wilkinson.
