IT was a night of glitz and glamour as the Worksop Guardian hosted its first Best in School Awards ceremony.
The 12 page special in this week’s Worksop Guardian is dedictaed to recognising the unsung heroes in our local schools and celebrating the best in Bassetlaw education.
We received doznes of nominations four our awards and hundreds of readers voted for who they wanted to win.
This week the winners gathered at The Lion Hotel for the awards ceremony, joined by their families and work colleagues and a host of special guests and sponsors.
“It’s pleasing that we are able to showcase some of the very best our local schools have to offer,” said Guardian editor Chris Burton.
“The people mentioned are not only the best in in schools but some of the best people in Bassetlaw full stop. It is a privilege for us to recognise them here tonight.”
Guests enjoyed a two course meal and watched a performance by the Guardian’s own singing sensation Lisa Marie before BBC’s Look North’s Clare Frisby took to the stage to present the ceremony.
“It’s an honour to be part of the very first Best in School Awards,” said Clare.
“It’s an opportunity to put the spotlight on the best teachers, best shcools and the very best pupils. It is about rewarding the hard work in the classrooms and the unsung heroes that look after our children.”
Each of the winners in the 11 categories were presented with a stylish trophy and sweets from Fudge and Sweet Emporium.
