Be A Good Citizen
Torbay and Devon Civic Award
Our Year 6 pupils are going to be showing great determination by taking part in the Civic Award this year. The award allows the children to demonstrate the good citizens that we see in each child every day. The Civic Award is organised by a local teacher in Devon, and has been running for sixteen years.
We encourage all of our Year 6 children to take part in the Civic Award as this reinforces the development of citizenship, one of our aims at Preston Primary - 'Be a Good Citizen'.
Last year, twenty eight of our Year 6 children completed the award, despite the COVID19 lockdown restrictions, and received a ‘special edition’ certificate.
To take part in the award, the children will need to complete a series of activities. These include active citizenship in school and in the community, an active hobby, a non-active hobby, a residential experience or adventure training, and supporting a cause or charity. We look forward to sharing the new skills they will be learning throughout the year.
