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.
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 successful pupil will receive £50 in book tokens plus a framed certificate. The school will receive a cheque for £250, which the Trust requires they spend on books for the school library.
The Chairman and a Trustee attend the schools’ end of year ceremonies in July to make the presentation.
Nominations for the 2020 Fred Harris Education Awards are now closed, and will be presented virtually to the Y6 winners during July.
