Learning for Living Awards 2017

The Learning for Living Awards Ceremony was held on 8 March at Formby High School – the sixteenth annual final so far!  The essay writing competition is to encourage thought and debate about moral and citizenship issues with the aim of putting into practice principles which would make the world a better place to live in.  All schools in Formby, both primary and secondary, take part and over 400 entries were submitted and reviewed by the judges this year.  Three students from each school were presented with prizes and an overall winner from the primary sector and the secondary sector were presented with shields.  This year’s winning primary school was St. Luke’s CE Primary with a piece written by Jenna about diversity called ‘Don’t Judge a Book by its Cover’. The secondary school winner was Formby High School with a moving piece submitted by Maisie (Year 8) about her brother, Zach.  Sponsorship to enable this scheme to continue is provided by St Peter’s Formby Education Trust and Southport Soroptimists.  Well done, not only to the worthy winners but to everyone who participated this year.
