Well done to Conner and all the other pupils from our schools in Wallsend that were nominated for one of the North Tyneside Learning Star Awards.

* This year, and for the first time, we delivered our award ceremony virtually via Zoom with the North East’s Matt Bailey compering the ceremony.
* There were 10 awards this year, each award sponsored by a business/organisation with a presence in North Tyneside
* We received over 260 outstanding nominations for children and young people. Nominations could be submitted by anybody (teacher, family member, friend etc) and any child/young person could be nominated, regardless of age.
* We received 57 nominations from 10 Wallsend schools.
* A shortlisting panel, made up of staff from North Tyneside Learning Trust and our main sponsor Vision for Education, spent 2 days shortlisting 4 finalists per award
* The final decision for who would win each award was given to the sponsor and announced at the award ceremony
* All finalists received a prize bag which contained various gadgets, toys and sweets
* Each winner was presented with their trophy at school.
