Earlier this term Mayfield SS had a visit from Chad from the NED Show. Chad entertained the students with a fantastic display of yoyo skills and presented the NED message.
Never give up
Do your best!!!
He was very surprised to find out that our students were already very familiar with this message. Due to the NED Awards which were introduced following the last visit of the NED show in 2010. He was very impressed, he said he knows of only one other school in the USA which has taken the message and embedded it into the school culture.
Chad was very excited to present the NED Awards to one teacher and some of our pupils.
Chatting to him afterwards I was able to explain how the NED awards have grown to the point where we have:
students nominating other students, students nominating teachers,
parents nominating students and for the first time teachers nominating other teachers.
Well done Mayfield!!
