Have your say

PETERLEE youngsters bagged honours at an awards ceremony hosted by Hartlepool United manager Colin Cooper.

The Pools boss was at St Bede’s Catholic Comprehensive School and Byron Sixth Form College to hand out well-deserved accolades to students during the Westway-based school’s annual awards event.

About 150 awards were presented to 125 students from across all year groups.

Assistant headteacher Paul Dickson said: “This was a chance to celebrate and recognise the wonderful work in partnership with students, parents and the business environment.

“We had Caterpillar’s managing director Phil Handley here, praising the idea of partnership, and we also recognised the amazing progress the kids are making.

“Each individual was given the opportunity not only to meet their targets but exceed them, in sport and music as well.

“We are all proud of the students and look forward to celebrating even more achievements next year.”
