On Friday 18th July we held our annual Permewan Awards night for our Year 6. The Permewan Awards is traditionally the highest accolade given to pupils in St Michael in the Hamlet Primary. The Permewan Award was first presented in 1928 by Mrs Permewan in memory of her husband, Dr Permewan and their daughter sum of money was invested and the interest from that was originally used to purchase gold watches for the children who best lived up to the Permewan Pledge. Today the award winners each receive an individually engraved comrade plaque.
The award is given to children who put others before themselves; who are consistently well behaved and well mannered and who reach their potential and work hard.
Children are nominated and voted for by staff.
For the second year running the ceremony was made extra special by the guest appearance of Miss Beatrice Colley, who herself received the award in 1937! Miss Colley presented the winners with their award.
