Redruth Charity Trust Education Awards
In 2005, the Trust expanded its work to include the ten Junior Schools in the TR15-16 area. This scheme is known as the Fred Harris Education Award in honour of Mr F.L.Harris who spent his lifetime working in education. The Redruth Charity Trust were fortunate to have him as a Trustee from 1947 – 1990 during which time he held the posts of both Chairman and Secretary.
RCT funds are awarded annually to the ten schools, to be directed to their Key Stage 2 library provision, relative to their pupil numbers. Since 2021, the award also includes the donation of a collection of Cornish books, procured from books distributor Tor Mark, based in St Day.
During the summer term, the Trust invites nominations of a Year 6 pupil whom teachers deem suitable to receive this award. The pupil should have a positive approach to life and make every effort in both their school subjects and extra curricular activities.
The Chairman and a Trustee attend the schools’ end of year ceremonies in July to make the presentation.
