Photographs and written by Colin Trollope
ON Wednesday, 10 March 2010,
David Carry, a Swimming Commonwealth Gold Medal winner along with
Anthony Quinlan, who plays the part of Gilly Roach in the TV sit-com
Hollyoaks, and Councillor Mike Storey, The Lord Mayor of Liverpool
presented certificates and badges to Liverpool young people. It was
an Oscar’s style ceremony in the Liverpool BT Convention Centre.
About 400 pupils and students, from a
large number of Liverpool Schools, who had taken part in the Duke of
Edinburgh’s Award Programme, were honoured along with 36 Street
Mates and 40 Health Mates, each of them had received training before
assisting with the Liverpool Youth and Play Service’s Splash
programme of school holiday activities programme. Incidentally,
there are over a thousand young pupils at schools and in Youth
Centres currently enrolled in the D of E Scheme in Liverpool.
The Lord Mayor has said that it is a
great chance to show case the traffic number of talented young
people we have in Liverpool. By becoming Street Mates and Health
Mates and taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme they
are developing valuable team building and people skills, which will
serve them well when they start work. There was a grand and very
professional set of acts between the presentations provided by
talented young performers from St John Bosco Arts College, SFX
College Choir, Catalystics and Cody Urban Dance.
Well-done everybody who took part; it
was a stupendous night in fabulous surroundings.
