2013 Fred Harris Education Awards

Redruth Charity Trust has just completed it’s annual visits to local primary schools to present the Fred Harris Memorial Award.  Mr. Harris worked in education all his life and was a trustee of the charity for more than 50 years.

The awards presented in his memory include a £250 donation to the school and a £50 W. H. Smith’s token to the winning student from year 6.  The pupil is chosen before moving to secondary education for making a difference to their primary school.

Illogan School student Louise Smitham was chosen for her valuable contribution.
Louise started the school as a very quiet and timid child; she has matured into a lovely girl and gained so much confidence along the way.  Louise excelled in every activity at Porthpean Outdoor Education Centre during the year 6 camp and plays in the netball team.  She did brilliantly in her SATs and recently took a lead role as Kitty Cobblers in the Musicmakers performance.  Louise thoroughly deserves the award and is sure to thrive at Pool Academy.
