Golden Apple success for Mrs Tyson!

We are delighted that our Higher Level Teaching Assistant Mrs Tyson won the award of ‘Teaching Assistant of the Year’ at the Golden Apple Awards on 3rd October.

The awards are run by the CN Newspaper Group to recognise and celebrate excellence and achievements in education, learning and training in all its forms.

Finalists from across the county were invited to the awards’ dinner at Carlisle Racecourse and the evening included performances by pupils from Cumbrian schools and was hosted by local broadcaster Nell Dunn.

The ‘Teaching Assistant of the Year’ category recognises a teaching assistant who ‘makes an outstanding contribution to the life of a nursery, school or college’ and we are delighted that Mrs Tyson has been recognised in this way for all her hard work and dedication for the students of Whitehaven Academy.

Well done Mrs Tyson!
