International Schools Award
On Monday I was lucky enough to attend the prize ceremony for the International Schools Award along with Yasmin Muhidin, Amaia Johnson Legaria, Libby Lynch, Paulina Alekseeva and Tobias Rutter.
The presentation was held in the Mayor’s chambers in the civic hall which are very impressive and was a little intimidating as we then had to give a short presentation to the Lord Mayor about the international projects that have been run at Lawnswood and the work that students and staff have done to make our school part of the global community. After we had finished our presentation and watched Oakwood Primary Academy (the other recipients of the award) do theirs, we were presented with the award and had our photo taken with the Lord Mayor.
We finished off our visit with a short tour of the council chamber (did you know the civic hall was built in 1933 by unemployed people in Leeds?). It was a great experience to share all the brilliant things we have done at Lawnswood and to celebrate that, especially in the current political climate.
