Star Pupil Award


At William Austin Infant School we have been taking part in a Star Pupil Award which provides children with the opportunity to win prizes at the Galaxy Centre in Luton.

Each month, class teachers and staff choose 1 child from their class who has been a ‘star pupil’ that month. It could be for any reason. Maybe they have been using good manners, maybe they kept trying really hard even though they found a task difficult or maybe they are really helpful at tidying things away. There are many reasons why a child might be picked by their teacher.


The children’s names and reasons for being a star are then collected by Miss Moran who sends them off to a panel at the Galaxy. They then choose a winner from various schools.


Each month we will update our school website with the names of children who have been nominated along with the reason they have been chosen for being a ‘star pupil’ that month. If we have a winner from our school we will then also share this with you all and they will be awarded with a prize in a special assembly in school.


Keep an eye on our website to see who has been nominated each month!
