Civic Award Presentation Ceremony

Congratulations to Year 6 pupils from Foundry Lane who were presented with their Civic Awards for Young People certificates by the Right Worshipful The Mayor of Southampton, Councillor Peter Baillie, at the Civic Centre last week.

To receive an award, the pupils have to keep a record of community service activity, an after-school hobby and a sporting achievement over a six-month period. Many will then go on to study for Duke of Edinburgh and similar awards.

Speaking after the awards presentation, the Mayor said: "It was a pleasure to meet these hard-working young people, whose determination, resilience and teamwork are a credit to their schools and the city as a whole. Well done to them all and the teachers, parents and carers who have supported them."
