Our two secondary schools don't send their nominations in until nearer their annual prize presentations, so the following are last year's responses:
Carr Hill HS -
"Voluntary work with Barnados"
Kirkham Grammar School
"Significant fund-raising for scoliosis and cystic fibrosis local charity"
Very rarely do I receive any acknowledgement for the recipients of these awards (i.e. the children themselves) but this year the following two came through the post, to which I wrote letters of reply:
1. From a grateful pupil of Newton Bluecoat School:
"Dear Mr. Stacey,
I am writing this letter to say thank you to the Rotary Club for the Citizenship Award I received at the Newton Bluecoat Leavers Service. I am really proud to receive this award."
2. From an appreciative pupil of Treales School:
"Dear Mr. Stacey,
I won the Good Citizens Award at Treales School this year. I would like to thank you for the book token kindly donated by the Rotary Club. I will enjoy choosing a new book with this."
