HeadStart Award at The Digis 2017 celebrates work of young people in HeadStart

(Edited on 30th July 2017 to add photos from the ceremony)

Monday 10th July was The Digis 2017, the amazing annual celebration of digital work from schools and young people organisations across Wolverhampton. The event is organised by HeadStart partner Wolverhampton Learning Technologies Team, and includes an afternoon ceremony for 4 - 7 year olds, and an evening ceremony for 8 - 18 year olds. Hundreds of parents and carers attended the ceremonies to share in the success of their children.

As part of the evening celebrations, The Digis 2017 included a special HeadStart Award, celebrating digital work created by young people working alongside HeadStart as part of our HeadStart Ambassadors programme, B-Safe Team, or from schools working alongside our staff. The award was presented by Sunita Pallan-Jhalli, HeadStart Senior Young Person Engagement Coordinator.
