Celebrating the success of our Children in Care 2016
Every year, the team from Cornwall Council’s Virtual School puts on an event to celebrate the success of our Children in Care. I have the great honour of presenting certificates to many young people.
These certificates are awarded for a multitude of reason like doing well at in schools and/or some other achievement like sport. It is a great event and very humbling when you understand some of the backstories of these young people and how they are dealing with them; yet still doing their very best at school with the support of the team from the Virtual School.
Every year a fancy dress theme is chosen. This year’s theme was super heroes. It was brilliant to see so many young people dress-up. However, it is not just the young people who partake in dressing up, but the entire team too.
Thanks must go to the Penryn Uni campus and their student ambassadors who help make this event so special.
I will finish with my huge thanks to the entire team of the Virtual School for all the work they do. They are heros, just like the young people they support.
