Southwark schoolchildren can nominate staff for a new charity prize celebrating their work during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Students aged 11-19 can nominate their teachers or anyone else who works at their school for the prize, run by London and Essex charity the Jack Petchey foundation.
A spokesperson for the foundation said: “A school staff member can be nominated for any number of reasons; perhaps they are a teacher who has put extra effort into making creative lessons remotely, a school cleaner who has shown exceptional commitment to keeping the school running, a librarian who has helped engage students in reading from home, or simply a member of staff who has gone above and beyond to support their students through this difficult year.”
Winners will get a certificate, a special face mask and a letter from Sir Jack Petchey, a businessman and the charity’s founder.
