St Peter’s CE Primary School teacher wins Educate award

Kira Redmond, a teacher at St Peter’s CE Primary School in Farnworth, has been awarded Teacher of the Year.

The award, sponsored by CER Education, recognizes a teacher who brings learning to life by engaging and inspiring young people to realize their potential through their tireless effort, dedication and passion.

A parent from St Peter’s CE Primary School nominated her for the award.

Mrs Redmond is known for touching the lives of many children, but in particular a boy who was afraid to go to school until he moved to school and was placed in Kira’s class. .

Thanks to Kira’s patience, encouragement, support and kindness, the student is now excelling inside and outside of the classroom and his anxiety about school has diminished.

She had a profound effect on this student as well as the other children in her class.

Now in its eleventh year, the Educate Awards showcase the hard work and creativity that goes on in the education sector, from STEM and the performing arts to sports and literacy.

The awards also recognize people who bring schools and colleges to life, from inspiring teachers and dedicated support staff to effective business leaders and strategic leadership teams.

In partnership with Copyrite Systems and Ricoh, the Educate Awards took place at Liverpool Cathedral and welcomed over 600 guests. The evening was hosted by broadcaster, Simon ‘Rossie’ Ross.

Alongside the awards ceremony was a delicious three-course gala dinner and sparkling entertainment at area schools.
