The Sawbridgeworth Primary School Yellow Book Prize Presentation took place on Friday 9 June 2023 at Sawbridgeworth Memorial Hall.
We were delighted to be joined by 48 of the 50 selected entrants, their parents and Headteachers along with Sawbridgeworth Mayor: Ruth Buckmaster and Herts County Councillor: Eric Buckmaster..
Proceedings began with refreshments, including some Yellow Book cake from The Shed coffeehouse and once everyone was settled, 50 medals and Yellow Books were presented to the talented pupils who were really proud to see their work in print!
Copies of the wellbeing resource have now been distributed to all teaching staff in the 5 schools.
A soft back copy of The Sawbridgeworth Primary School Yellow Book will be handed to every pupil in all 5 Schools around World Mental Health Day 10th October 2023. An online flipbook version will be available to view and a free download of the audio version, The Primary School Audio Yellow Book will be available for all pupils, parents and staff.
