PUPILS from a South Derbyshire school celebrated their achievements in a prize giving ceremony attended by hundreds of people.
Pupils in Year 11 and Post 16 at the Pingle School, in Coronation Street, attended the event to celebrate their achievements, all of whom had been chosen by their teachers because of their hard work and progress throughout the year.
Invited guests included Ann Hood, chairman of the South Derbyshire District Council and Pat Bullen, the chairman of the recently formed governing body of the school.
Viv Sharples, acting head teacher, said: “The students of the Pingle School never cease to inspire and amaze me. They demonstrate the personal qualities that will ensure they are the best they can be, of commitment, determination, stickability, curiosity and strength of character. I feel truly blessed to be part of the Pingle community.”
