A year 6 pupil at Lindow Community Primary School has been presented with a prestigious Wilmslow award.
Back in September, teachers nominated Alice Lucarini for the Wilmslow Rotary Young Citizen award for all that she has done to support both her school and local community in Lindow. Alice went on to win this accolade and was presented with the award by President Frank McCarthy and colleague of the Wilmslow Dean Rotary this month in a special assembly.
During her Year 5 studies, Alice was given the responsibility of Junior Recycling Officer for her school. From the moment she was given this role, she championed the cause and transformed the school's and its pupils' attitudes and efforts towards recycling. Alice lead a small team of officers to run competitions, hold whole school assemblies and work alongside ANSA Waste Management too.
Alice also wanted to improve recycling efforts in the local area. Following a trip to the Carrs Park, Alice wrote to Cheshire East Council to share her concerns about the littering. As a result, Alice was invited to visit the environment hub in Sandbach where she met Councillor Don Stockton and Ansa Parks Commercial Manager Matt Smith. They asked Alice to initiate a competition within school to find an appealing and encouraging poster that was subsequently displayed in the park.
Mrs Rossiter said "All at Lindow Community Primary School are incredibly proud to recognise Alice's achievements and that this achievement has rewarded her determination and desire to set herself goals and work incredibly hard to achieve them, for the good of the local area and those within it. Alice may now also be considered for wider younger citizen awards within the Rotary organisation."
