STUDENT CREDITED WITH PRIZE SPONSORED BY LAFARGE TARMAC’S TUNSTEAD SITE

A student from St Thomas More Catholic School in Buxton has received an exciting ‘credit’ prize for her achievements, that was sponsored by  Lafarge Tarmac’s Tunstead site.

Emilie Shrimpton, who is in year 9, was selected after being entered into a prize draw with other pupils who had also received credits for good work in the classroom and taking part in commendable activities, such as supporting the Silver Surfers Group, success on the sports field and excellent attendance.

The school approached Lafarge Tarmac’s Tunstead site in Buxton, which agreed to donate £200 to the school’s prize scheme. The school then used the money to buy a Samsung Smart TV, which was presented to Emilie.

Sue Waldron, School Business Manager at St Thomas More Catholic School, said: “We are extremely grateful to Lafarge Tarmac for their support with buying a prize for our credit scheme. This initiative has proved to be a huge motivator for our pupils, inspiring them to achieve, not just academically, but in many different ways, which means it is open to everyone.  It is fantastic to have the backing of local companies and it means a lot to the pupils too.”

Raul Morales, Plant Manager at the Tunstead site, said: “When we heard about the credit prize initiative, we thought it sounded a fantastic way to inspire pupils to work hard and also to put that bit of extra effort in to really achieve something special for themselves or the community.  Emilie is a well deserved winner, but we’d also like to congratulate all the students who achieved credits this time.”

As well as donating to St Thomas More Catholic School’s credit initiative, staff from the Tunstead site also visited the school to speak to students about apprenticeships available at the company.
