At St Thomas the Martyr CE Primary School in Up Holland, we will be selecting a Sue Dean award winner every term. Our third one has been selected from Year 6. Below are some words as typed by her teacher - Mrs Aydin - as to why she was picked.
If the sorting hat were to be placed upon your head, the only house worthy of you, would be Gryffindor with qualities of loyalty, courage, adventure and daring. Difficult decisions are made every day in Year 6, however, this was like walking into Olivander's and the wand jumping out of the box into the wizard's hand. People fail to recognise, that it matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be; and this young lady certainly has grown into a magical, creative and thoroughy conscientious author. You rather think anything is possible when you have enough nerve and our award winner has it in abundance. It has been a delight to see her push her own boundaries, uncover hidden abilities and rise to every challenge. And it is those abilities, which show what we truly are through the choices made and the example you set each and every day. Be proud of your achievement today and as you move into the next phase of education, take with you your unique talents. In the words of the woman who has inspired your interent n the realms of magic and mystery, "We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: you have the power to imagine better."
Huge congratulations and thank you!
