The St Helens Reporter is once again running its hugely popular and prestigious Education Awards, sponsored by Carmel College.

Over the next two weeks, we will be outlining the twelve categories within these awards and inviting YOU to get involved by making nominations.

Today, we want to hear about youngsters who are great ambassadors for their school! If you know one, then why not nominate them for the Primary Pupil of the Year award, sponsored by The Hardshaw Centre.

This award will recognise primary school pupils who make an outstanding contribution, academic or otherwise. We want to hear about pupils who exert a positive influence on other students, are approachable by staff and pupils alike and are happy to get involved in activities for the school. In fact - all round good citizens for your school!

Last year’s winner was Aidan Winstanley of Nutgrove Methodist Primary School who overcame many challenges in his life and showed great strength, self-control and courage. The judges said that Aidan was an exceptionally well humoured child who was popular throughout his year group and the entire community.

The Hardshaw Centre in St Helens, Merseyside is delighted to support the awards by sponsoring this category. The Centre has a wide range of well-known stores as well as the popular Cafe Zinho and Country Kitchen for those in need of a break from shopping. Visiting the centre couldn’t be easier as the Centre adjoins the St Helens main bus station, and St. Helens railway station is located nearby. For those travelling by car the roof top car park has 180 parking spaces and is accessible from Bickerstaffe Street and operates free parking on Saturday and Sunday.
