Stars in our School was another enormous success this year. A huge thank you to all the schools who joined in with our celebrationsthis year. Last year we concentrated our celebrations on Midday Supervisors and so this year we shifted our focus to the admin staff. We asked children to write or draw cards,

posters poems or letters to tell us what made the admin staff at their school so special. We received hundreds of entries from several schools. The standard was amazing. The amount of effort put in by the children and young people shows just how important admin staff are to their schools.

The competition was judged by UNISON’s Regional Secretary Margaret Thomas. The winner was Chloe from Baden Powell Primary School. Her beautiful card expressing her respect for the admin staff really touched Margaret.

So difficult was the decision that another two entries were singled out. The children from Adamsdown Primary had taken so much time and care with their entries that Mrs P and Miss Price were awarded a prize as were Deborah andSusan from the Ely Children’s Center who’s nursery aged pupils showed a real artistic flare.

A huge congratulations to all the children who took part but especially to the admin staff. The children in all the schools that joined in showed such respect and admiration for the staff that you must all be doing an amazing job. Thank you for all your hard work from all at Cardiff County Branch.
