Eastbourne Citizens awards are given out at St Thomas A Becket schools
At St Thomas A Becket Infant and Junior Schools, on the feast day of Saints Peter and Paul, the annual presentation of the Eastbourne Catenians Citizenship Award took place. Two selections were made from the students applying, one from each school. The selection was done by reviewing the best submissions, these were completed by the parents as to why their child should receive the award. The selected pupils were Jack Bailey Moore from the infants school and Charlie Bushell from the junior school. Charlie won the junior award for his sponsored rolls to support the charity Football For Peace and Jack Bailey Moore won the infant award for sponsored events and raffle ticket selling for Great Ormond Street Hospital where he is receiving treatment himself. He also got the award for bravery. The presentation of the awards was timed by head teacher Rachel Turner to take place immediately after the feast day Mass, celebrated by Father Chris Benyon, at the start of the school day. Each child received the books they had selected, and a framed certificate - as well as a silver cup inscribed with their name - which is displayed in the respective school for all to see - from Circle President Peter Oakshott.
