The Dolphin School receives special St Paul’s Carnival Pride Award

Pupils from The Dolphin School in Bristol were excited to welcome Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Avon and Somerset, Sue Mountstevens, who presented them with a special PCC Pride Award on Tuesday 15th January for their extensive contribution and support to the St Paul’s 50th Anniversary Carnival celebrations last summer.

During her visit, Sue Mountstevens led an assembly and thanked the children for their hard work which helped contribute to a successful and memorable carnival for the community, describing their efforts as ‘outstanding’. She particularly commented on their wonderful costumes and expressive dance and drumming routines, which she acknowledged must have taken a great deal of preparation and organisation. During the visit, the Head Pupils gave her a tour of the academy and pupils from the School Learning Council had prepared a number of interesting questions to ask the PCC, covering topics from policing and crime in and around the city to the roles and responsibilities of various jobs in the police force. Fern and Harry (Year 6) described their academy’s values to the PCC and then asked what her values for Bristol were?  Soraya (Year 4) asked what was the scariest crime she had seen?

PCC Sue Mountstevens said: “I am delighted to have come to The Dolphin School to meet all of the fantastic children involved in such a spectacular celebration. I was honoured to present the children with their well-deserved award in their assembly yesterday afternoon. Thanks to their hard work and commitment, the children and teachers ensured the 50th anniversary of the St Paul’s Carnival was the best yet and a celebration of the city’s culture, diversity and creativity.”

Principal, Shelley Flanagan said “The whole school community was delighted to receive this award which is testament to the hard work and commitment shown by pupils, families and staff in preparing for and participating in the St Paul’s Carnival. Meeting Sue Mountstevens was a wonderful experience for the children who were fascinated to learn more about the work of the police in Bristol.”
