Schools plan big celebration event

May 23 2022

THE trust that runs Mangotsfield School is planning a big event to celebrate students’ successes. 

Castle School Education Trust, which also runs Downend School, Lyde Green Primary School and four other schools, is holding an awards ceremony at the University of the West of England Business School on July 11, and is looking for local businesses to sponsor the event. 

Pupils in all seven CSET schools are being nominated in categories for awards recognising kindness; sporting achievement; creativity; outstanding individual progress; green planet; outstanding team of the year; contribution to the wider community; resilience; unsung hero; and living school values. 

Each nominee will be invited with two family members to the event, which will also feature performances from students.

Event organiser Clare Bradford said: “We are always so inspired by the creativeness, aptitude, resilience and pride that our CSET pupils show, from the wide-eyed four year olds to the mature 18 year olds ready to set foot in the world.

"Therefore, we have decided that now is the time to truly celebrate and recognise them. 

"This July we will hold our first ever trust-wide celebration, where we will recognise our pupils and their contribution to school life and the wider community.

"Academic success is important, but so are pupils’ attitudes and approach to life.

"We are hoping to find sponsors to help us make this event as fantastic as possible for our young people and their families." 

The trust is looking for businesses to sponsor everything from an individual award to the event's catering.
