Eastbourne and Willingdon MP Caroline Ansell visited Heron Park Primary Academy Awards evening and presented a certificate to Alastair Ewen.
Alastair received a ‘community award’ during the event last Friday at the school in Dallington Road, Hampden Park.
Caroline also took the time to go back to the staffroom to join teaching staff during the visit.
She said she was keen to support the school in building relationships with local businesses to help sponsor some of the bigger projects such as the outdoor play area in the field, and also collaborating with local groups such as the cubs, scouts and cadets, so it becomes a community hub.
“It was a delight to be part of the awards and I was so impressed by everything I saw. Teachers and leaders at the school had created a wonderful evening for parents, carers and children to enjoy their success,” said Caroline.
Head of Schools Mr Raja Ali added, “Having their MP join them on an evening of celebration and recognition cannot be beaten.”
