The Diana Award was set up in 1999 to act as a lasting legacy to Diana Princess of Wales to recognise inspirational and socially motivated young people. Earlier this academic year, six pupils were successfully awarded the Diana Champion Fundraiser award and the Diana Champion Volunteer award for their commitment and efforts in relation to fund raising and to their communty. The Diana Award is a nationally recognised award and also allows pupils to access a variety of resources and opportunities, if successful.
Pupils must have been completing their activity for a minimum of 10 months. There are 5 different categories that our pupils (individuals or groups) can be nominated in. These are:

We are now approaching the final round of nominations for this academic session. If any pupil/group thinks that they may be eligible for the Diana Award, they shoud see Mrs Cheyne for more information and the submission forms. The deadline date for the submission forms is Monday 27 April.
