Way, way before Lockdown but the children deserve recognition and we all could all do with a bit of heart-warming news at the moment... 

Year 6 pupils at the Learning Academy Partnership’s All Saints Marsh Church of England Academy at Newton Abbot have been taking part in the Torbay and Newton Civic Award 

Pupils have to prove their participation in key areas, which includes active citizenship in both their school and home community, starting a new hobby, and attending a residential experience that involves sleeping away from home and joining outdoor activities.

Pupils have already shown impressive creativity, with Year 6 pupil Nicole running a ‘Crazy Hair Day’ to raise money for the Children’s Trust, which happened alongside an own clothes day for Children in Need. The joint fundraiser raised £112.
