Many congratulations to all the winners at the 2017 DSAT Awards ceremony!
It was another spectacular evening for children and their families, staff and the wider community of all the schools in DSAT at our fourth annual School’s Awards Ceremony on Friday 30th June. Around 450 guests gathered at the King Power Stadium, home of Leicester City Football Club, and the host, ‘Action Jackson’, put on an energetic performance to warm up the crowd and convince everyone that they were AMAZING!
We are extremely grateful to our principal sponsor, Proactive AV, as well as all the industry leaders who were involved – 3P Learning, Moir Wade, YMD Boon, Michelmores, MHA Macintyre Hudson, ScholarPack, The Sturgess Motor Group, Rahmqvist UK, Cavalry, and Wilton Baking UK - without their generous sponsorship this event simply could not happen.
Each of our sponsors presented awards alongside some very special guests including DSAT Pupil Parliament Prime Minister & Deputy Prime Minister; The Right Worshipful the Lord Mayor of Leicester, Councillor Rashmishank Joshi; David Williams, Chair of the DSAT Board of Directors; Jeremy Webster, Deputy Director at Attenborough Arts Centre; Nicola Adcock; Judith Green; colleagues from UNISON; and the former All Blacks and Leicester Tigers Captain Craig Newby who had everyone up on their feet doing the Haka.
Also, thank you to the Headteachers from each of our schools for supporting the event, Braunstone Community Primary School Glee Club who provided entertainment, and the countless people who worked behind the scenes to help make the evening a success. This was a particularly significant occasion as it was also the trust’s 5th birthday and a presentation was made to CEO Paul Stone, whose vision it was to hold these special awards.
Above all we thank and congratulate all our nominees and winners. Discovery Schools Academy Trust is extremely proud of the outstanding talents and achievements of each and every one of them.
We are delighted to share with you a short film capturing this year's event
