Over a hundred Friary students received a free ice cream for their hard work and achievement during the last half-term.

Most of the students were from Johnson House, who led the way in House Points during the run up to Easter.

Sam Piper, in Year 8, said “It’s a magnificent reward for my hard work in school.” Abbie Pendlebury, also in Year 8, added: “I feel proud to have earned this reward.” This sentiment was echoed by Jack Pallatina, in Year 10, who said: “I feel appreciated for all the hard work I’m putting into my GCSEs.”

There is intense competition between the Houses to be in pole position in time for the end of year Rewards Day. However, for now, the students were happy to be rewarded for their recent efforts.

“I’m incredibly proud of the achievements of so many pupils in our House,” said Mrs Male, Head of Johnson House. “It was wonderful to see them enjoying their well-earned treat.”

Whilst around two-thirds of the rewards, supplied by Cannock Dairies, were reserved for students with the most House Points in Johnson House, students with the most House Points in otherHouses were also recognised.
