Pupils at a South Tyneside school shared their hard work with their families at a celebration event.

Children at Hebburn Comprehensive School, based in Campbell Park Road, have been involved in 21 ‘Key’ projects over the last 18 months, aimed at encouraging young people to come up with their own project ideas to secure funding.

More than £6,700 has been gained, so the school organised an event giving the children the chance to showcase their work, which has included setting up a Fairtrade working group, developing a student newspaper and organising a collection of food for a foodbank.

Angeline Phillips, assistant headteacher at the school, said: “Our young people have demonstrated that they are confident and responsible members of the school and wider community and should be very proud of their hard work.

“They have all improved their key skills and most of all they have thoroughly enjoyed themselves.”
