FRANK Sharman CITIZENSHIP Award
Frank Sharman was one of eight Sharmans over two generations who attended Coombe Road School. He enjoyed his time at school and, although he was not always a model pupil, he won a scholarship to Varndean Grammar School and went on to lead a varied life in the merchant navy, public relations and advertising. He moved to St. Kitts in the West Indies where he and his wife ran a successful business until his death in 2009.
The Sharman Award is presented annually in his memory by his family.
This award recognises the fact that this young person has been a role model in our school over a number of years. She consistently tries her best and encourages others while demonstrating our CORE Values: commitment, opportunity, respect and excellence.
This award is in recognition of this young person's exemplary manners, fantastic personality and determination to succeed. Throughout a strange and sometimes challenging year, he has brought joy, humour, energy and brilliance to our school. He is a model student, a superb citizen, and we will all miss him very, very much. Well done - you have made everyone so proud.
After an incredibly disruptive year due to the Covid19 pandemic, this young person deserves recognition for continuing to be an exemplary student. She has worked hard with remote learning and demonstrates incredible care for the world we live in, implementing change in her own life to protect our planet.
We managed to get the award to her - and here's a selfie from home!
This year, we have two students (the teachers just couldn't decide!)
For being the very best versions of themselves and overcoming great challenges throughout their time at Coombe Road. For always showing respect to our school community and seeking out new opportunities. You are both wonderful - stay this way.
For overcoming any difficulties and always striving to be the very best member of our school community. For continually demonstrating the CORE Values of Coombe Road Primary School - Commitment, Opportunity, Respect and Excellence.
For demonstrating commitment, opportunity, respect and excellence - and working so very hard to achieve her full potential.
For being an exemplary member of our school community, demonstrating commitment and excellence and always trying her very best (no matter how difficult a situation may be), and for always smiling and seeing the best in everyone and everything!
For demonstrating commitment, respect and excellence - and for seeking out new opportunities to ensure he becomes a good citizen.
