The Colin Trenbirth Endeavour Award
Colin Trenbirth was a parishioner at Christ Church and a Governor at the school for many years. His death in September 2015 was hard on all that knew him. The Governors at Christ Church CE Primary School were keen to keep his memory alive by creating an annual award for a member of the school community.
Colin came over many medical obstacles in his life and had a deep love for cricket. For these reasons it was decided that the award would be given to a child within the school that showed the same qualities. A child that was overcoming barriers to become successful within an area of their life.
The award will be presented annually at the Leavers Service at Christ Church, Bessborough Road in July.
2016/17 - Lewis Moylan, Year 5
This year the award was presented to Lewis Moylan from Year 5. Over his time at Christ Church he has shown persistence in his learning, trying hard even when he has struggled. Over the past few months of Year 5, Lewis has had some real difficulties within his personal circumstances. Despite this Lewis has continued to work hard in school, impressing his teachers, friends and family along the way. Lewis really is turning into a fantastic and inspirational young man.
2015/16 - Louis Bennett, Year 5
The trophy was awarded to Louis by Mrs Trenbirth, Colin's wife. Louis was nominated by several staff members who had seen real growth in Louis. His attitude to school and his work has developed so much over the years. Staff are truly proud of the young man that Louis has become.
Louis is heading into Year 6 as an inspiration to other students.
