Boost for Halesbury students
28th June 2011
James Morris, MP for Halesowen and Rowley Regis, visited Halesbury School in Halesowen last Friday to present a trophy to the most improved student of the year.
The competition for the award was fierce, with many of the students having a successful year. In the end, the trophy was won by Patrick Millar, who received the award from James during the Leavers Assembly.
During his visit, James was also given a tour of the school and also chatted with pupils and teaching staff at Halesbury. He intends to be a strong voice for the school within Parliament and around the constituency.
Judi Kings, Headteacher of Halesbury School said: “We are very proud of the Year 11 leavers, many of whom we have known since they were aged four. We try to hold a big leaving event for them and were pleased that James Morris was able to attend. He was very interested in the provision we offer and in our vision for improving the outcomes for people with learning difficulties and disabilities in the future”.
James Morris commented: “Supporting young people around Halesowen and Rowley Regis is of paramount importance. I was delighted to present the trophy to Patrick and would like to congratulate him and all the students at Halesbury for their hard work over the year”.
