Derrytrasna Pastoral Care Award
The Derrytrasna Pastoral Care Award was created in partnership with the Public Health Agency (PHA). The annual award is for school communities that have demonstrated exceptional pastoral care in supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of pupils.
The aim of the award is the acknowledgement and celebration of schools that exceed normal expectations in supporting some element of the personal, social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual needs of a child or young person.
On Friday 20 April 2018, Derek Baker, Permanent Secretary, Department of Education and Valerie Watts, Interim Chief Executive of the PHA presented Awards to Stanhope Street Nursery, Belfast; St Mary’s Primary, Killyleagh and St Paul’s Primary Irvinestown (joint winners); Belfast Boys’ Model and Tor Bank School in recognition of their exceptional pastoral care of pupils.
Nominations for 2018/19 are now closed.
