Top prize for school calendar

An anti-bullying calendar produced by pupils at Hope School, Belle Vale, has won first prize at a national conference.

The school’s Anti-Bullying Ambassadors had to present their idea before an audience of 300 people in a Dragons Den-style event at the national anti-bullying conference in Wigan.

They won the top prize of £200 and have decided to donate it to three charities –  The Anthony Walker Foundation, Alder Hey and the Princess Diana Awards.

“This is a wonderful achievement for the school and very well deserved acknowledgement of their work, ” said local councillor and school governor Claire Glare. “The boys should be very proud of this award and they have also decided that three very deserving causes will also benefit.”

The calendar is on sale from the school at a cost of £2 with all proceeds going towards the Lord Mayor’s Charity Appeal. 

The Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Councillor Gary Millar is visiting the school on Friday to collect the proceeds from the sale.
