Buckton Vale pupils are sticking to values

BUCKTON Vale Primary pupils recently completed a project on the Carrbrook school’s six core values – happiness, honesty, responsibilty, respect, belief and aspire to achieve.

Children were tasked with designing stickers depicting each of the values.

The designs were so good that the school has had them printed poster size and displayed in the hall thanks to parent Gary Dinsdale who works for Audenshaw printing firm Boss Direct.

And the Mayor of Tameside, Cllr Joyce Bowerman and her consort, husband Fred, were invited to assembly to present the winning designers with a framed keepsake of their designs.

The winners were: Nyla Wilson, aspire to achieve; Riley Malaney, ‘bee’ responsible; Henry Catherall, believe; Joshua Dinsdale and Lily Harley, respect; Megan English and Ella Gallagher, happiness; Maddie Crosby, honesty.

There was also a presentation to Emma Catherall who created the Buckton Vale Values Rap.

Headteacher Deborah Brown said: “We asked the children what the six values meant to them so we could produce stickers.

“There were some really good designs like for happiness – your smile makes me smile – while be responsible saw a bee drawn with the slogan ‘bee responsible’.”
