On 26th June The Herts Advertiser School Awards 2019 celebrated all that is great within St Albans and Harpenden Schools.
These awards recognised both pupils’ achievements, inspirational members of staff and schools which go above and beyond to make a difference. We got that recognition and were declared winners under the School of the Year (Primary) category.
Here is a little acrostic poem to share the great news:
We sat in the auditorium, of Oaklands Campus Hall,
In our smartest clothes, friendliest smiles, hoping to win all.
Nervously we sat there, waiting anxiously to hear,
‘Now to announce the winner of Primary School of the Year!’
Eagerly in silence we sat there as the nominations were read out,
Really loudly, we cheered when Park Street was called out.
So thank you to everyone for this fantastic year:
of creative learning, engaging lessons, active PE, Mental Health and Well-being and everything else we hold so dear.
Thanks to all the children who have continued to display Outstanding Behaviour, as judged by our School Improvement Partner;
the staff who have continued to develop an exciting and motivating curriculum and offer a tremendous amount of support;
all those parents who have offered amazing support and encouragement, time and effort.
