East Grinstead Mayor presents End of Term Awards

September 5, 2018 at 2:45 pm

East Grinstead Mayor, Rex Whittaker, made himself available to present the end of term awards for both Manor Green and St Stephen’s Primary School. Earlier in the term Rex came along to several sessions watching the children ride and has since chosen East Park as one of his three charities to support this year. We are very grateful for his interest and support.

Every term the pupils are set targets, individual to each child. By helping to choose the skill they want to improve they take ownership of the improvements they need to make to win their Endeavour awards. Each session, within the lesson, they focus on the element they have chosen and together with their leaders work toward making the improvements needed.

All six riders from Manor Green School received their Endeavour Awards, Grade 1 Riding Certificates and Grade 1 Horse Care Certificates and badges.

Fourteen children from St Stephens received their Endeavour Awards. Four received the Grade 2 Riding and Horse Care certificates, one received Grade 1 Riding and Horse Care certificates, and also one received Grade 1 Carriage Driving certificate. Ten of the children had entered into the Regional Artwork competition and won 2nd prize so also collected their beautiful blue rosettes.

The Mayor also presented individual achievement awards and they were:

Most Improved Newcomer, Continued Best Effort, Improvement Award, Challenge Award, Carriage Driving Award, Outstanding Accomplishmen,t Effort and Achievement.

Woodfield School’s riders passed their Grade 1 Horse Care and Riding having had a very busy term covering all the required elements.

Six endeavour awards were earned by the children from The QE II School for their hard work and effort during the term.

Sally O’Neill went to the Clifton Hill School’s annual prize giving awards, held at Surrey National Golf Club in Chaldon, to present the children’s endeavour awards in front of their parents and school staff.

All our riders have consistently worked hard during the summer and we are very proud of their accomplishments.
