Wilstead Present First Golden Star Award

Gold Star WinnerSuccess at Wilstead Lower is recognized and rewarded regularly, sometimes for a small thing, sometimes big but always important to the individual.  All our children work hard and this work is rewarded via our House Points, Golden Time or Star of the Week Award.  Sometimes, one of our children does something really special that deserves recognition, for that reason we created the Gold Star Award, our very own “Blue Ribbon” award.

Recently at a Celebration Assembly we heard about a competition win for one of our children outside of school.  The next week there was more success so we decided to find out more.  What we discovered left us speechless.

We are proud to announce that the winner of the first ever Golden Star Award  –

We wanted to find out more about this unusual sport so we asked Elizabeth’s press team to tell us all about it:
