Goole High School Scoops Princess Diana Award

Goole_High_School_Diana_AwardI had forgotten to blog about my recent visit to Goole High School to meet with pupils who had received a Diana, Princess of Wales award for their pioneering anti-bullying mentor scheme. The scheme sees older students buddying up with new and younger students as part of a mentoring scheme.


The scheme has been incredibly successful and the young people I spoke to about the scheme really were fantastic. Scooping such an important award is a credit to them and to Goole High School Broughtonwhich seems to be going from strength to strength at the moment.


In other news I spent this weekend at a number of really enjoyable events in the constituency including the truly fantastic Rescue Day at 7 Lakes, Crowle. The event was attended by thousands of people and I was amazed at just how large it was.


Sunday I spent at the Broughton Show where I joined Councillor Ivan Glover, Mayor of Broughton, and his wife Anne. The Mayoress and I had the task of judging the fancy dress competition. It was a tough call as all of the kids had made such a great effort.
