Toby Tyke Presents Greenacre Annual School Awards

Barnsley Football Club mascot and fan favourite Toby Tyke was a special guest at Greenacre School’s annual achievement ceremony this afternoon.

Greenacre is a special school that educates and cares for young people aged between 3-19, with severe and complex needs.

Every year, the school comes together to celebrate the incredible achievements of the pupils who have excelled in their work over the course of the academic terms, as well as acknowledging the fantastic support from the staff, who give their all day-in-day-out with their hard-working attitude and commitment.

Toby Tyke, on his first visit to Greenacre, was joined on stage by other special guests including Cllr Pauline Markham, Mayor of Barnsley, in front of a crowd of over 100 pupils and staff, as he presented trophies and certificates to the winners and runners-up of the awards.

Women & Girls Development Officer Lynn Goodman, who leads on Reds in the Community’s Every Player Counts programme, reflected following the visit.

She said: “It was great to be involved at Greenacre’s annual awards again this year. The awards ceremony is an opportunity to award the remarkable pupils and staff at Greenacre for their efforts throughout the year. It was great that Reds in the Community and Barnsley FC could be a small part of the event once again this year.”
