Children, parents and staff from Springbank scrubbed up well and looked fantastic at the Golden Owl Awards last night at Leeds Town Hall. Storm Troopers, Darth Vader and some superheroes met us on the Town Hall steps when we arrived which was exciting and allowed for some great photo opportunities. Once inside, everyone settled into their seats and enjoyed the opening ceremony which consisted of an owl flying across the room several times much to people’s amazement! We had 2 films shortlisted this year; one in the KS1 category and one in the KS2 category. Unfortunately we were pipped at the post in both categories. I know some children were disappointed not to win but the children should be very proud of the fact that they made it to the final of the awards as that is a great achievement. As we always say to the children ‘if you don’t succeed the first time, keep trying’ and that it exactly what we will do! Next year we’ll have another go – Mr Bradshaw is already planning next year’s entries so Golden Owls watch out…we will be back!
