Young people can be proud

IT’S so refreshing to see students thanking their teachers when they collected their GCSE results.

Today the Evening Mail publishes the finalists in this year’s education Oscars for the whole of Cumbria – the Golden Apples.

It’s encouraging to see so many finalists from the south of the county.

Each and every one of them is already a winner for the south of the county long before the category winners are announced at a special awards ceremony held at Rheged, near Penrith, on October 4.

Today the Evening Mail is proud to publish a special eight-page pull-out devoted to the stories of achievement along with photos and results of our GCSE pupils from all over Barrow, Dalton, Millom, Ulverston and the South Lakes.

And it’s no co-incidence that behind so many of the success stories is an inspirational teacher.

Our young people should be hugely proud of their achievements.

Some, who we have highlighted, have managed to get their results against all the odds.

Hopefully their stories will motivate younger pupils to aim high when they sit their own exams in future years.

Across a range of abilities the most important goal is for all pupils to fulfil their potential.

We should ask no more and seek no less.

And we should ensure we always recognise the role all our teachers play in that endeavour.
