Golden Apple Awards

Hull Children’s University present the award for Against All Odds.

St Anthony’s Catholic Primary School was named as the overall winner of the Against All Odds award in recognition of its extraordinary community effort after ten-year-old Cameron Good’s tragic death due to a devastating asthma attack last year. Staff and pupils came together to raise awareness of asthma through the charity his family established, Breathe For Cameron. Hull Children’s University was extremely proud to present this award to these extremely deserving winners.

The Hull Daily Mail’s Golden Apple awards, now in their second year, were held at Willerby Manor Hotel at the beginning of December.

BBC weather presenter Keeley Donovan handed out awards to 11 individuals, schools and groups.

The Lifetime Achievement Award went to the Longcroft School science teacher Lee Smith, in recognition of the significant and positive impact he made on education in Hull and the East Riding during a career spanning more than 40 years.

Meanwhile, Ganton School scooped the We Love Our  School Award in recognition of the Anlaby Park Road school’s relentless dedication and passion to supporting children with various disabilities.

Once again sponsored by the Sewell Group, the awards celebrate the unsung achievements of individuals and groups in education. Hull Children’s University’s Director, Natasha Banke, was also one of the judges of the awards.
