West Exe School, was once again transformed into an Oscars style event, and didn’t disappoint as students from Exeter and beyond were awarded their bespoke awards. A record number of schools nominated students for a variety of reasons - Some students had overcome ill health and accidents, showing courage and determination to not let anything hold them back. Others had worked together to fundraise for charity in creative ways.
As well as a finger buffet, coffee supplied by Boston Tea Party and a bounty of amazing cupcakes, guests were treated to musical entertainment from up and coming duo “Six days” a brother and sister group who captivated the audience with their harmonies and unique style. A superb ballet dancer from St Luke’s finished off the night with a wonderful performance, which was particularly suited to the ICE themed decorations.
The annual Exeter ICE awards evening is now in its fifth successive year, searching our our unsung heroes and celebrating the most inspirational children in education.
This year we introduced the Teacher of the Year award and a unanimous vote was given for Trisha Morris, head teacher at Rockbeare C of E Primary. The award recognised her outstanding contribution to the school and community. Tricia was surprised on the night when all of the staff at Rockbeare turned up secretly to support her, along with a special book created by the students.
