Weymouth Youngsters Collect Civic Award


7:56am 12th October 2012

Weymouth school children have been commended by the Mayor for completing their Civic Award.

13 children from Southill Primary School were given the accolade for their hard work.

The public service course usually leads onto the Duke of Edinburgh award.

It offers pupils the chance to work towards the award by performing a public service at both school and in the community, a physical and non-physical hobby and adventure training for six months.

Former Southill Primary School teacher Tess Chapman introduced the Civic Award to the borough. She now works at Wyke Regis Junior School and attended the event.

She told WESSEX FM: "I am very proud of the 13 children who have worked hard and completed their Civic Award. They have done really well.

"It has been a great first year and I hope more schools will sign up to do the award. The children who have completed the Civic Award this year have been inspired to do the Duke of Edinburgh Award in the future which is great news."
