Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Sue Mountstevens visited The Dolphin School yesterday (15 January 2019) to present students with a special PCC Pride Award, following their performance at St Paul’s Carnival.
The Bristol Primary School went above and beyond to create a fantastic performance for the St Paul’s Carnival and their beautiful outfits and choreographed routine led to the school being named as ‘best dance’ of the carnival procession.
The school, which has only been open for two years, helped to bring the St Paul’s community together in a wonderful celebration of culture and heritage. The school, alongside the police and carnival committee, worked side by side to bring the community together and ensure the carnival could be enjoyed by everyone.
Following the presentation of the award, students from the School Learning Council asked the PCC their questions. These included asking her about her role, the hardest decision she has had to make and what was the scariest crime she has ever come across. The visit ended with a tour of the school, including the library, outdoor classroom and viewing the many pieces of artwork on display at the school.
PCC Sue Mountstevens said: “I am delighted to have come to The Dolphin School to meet all of the fantastic children involved in such a spectacular celebration. I was honoured to present the children with their well-deserved award in their assembly yesterday afternoon.
“Thanks to their hard work and commitment, the children and teachers ensured the 50th anniversary of the St Paul’s Carnival was the best yet and a celebration of the city’s culture, diversity and creativity.”
