St Ralph Sherwin Award 2019

Today, Mr Peter Barnes, Vice-Chair of our CMAT presented the St Ralph Sherwin Award to a pupil who this year has shown great personal witness and fortitude as exemplified by our patron Saint. The recipient was overwhelmed at the surprise presentation and rightly proud. Many congratulations to her!


Each school of the St Ralph Sherwin CMAT has been given an award to be presented to an exemplary pupil who embodies the aims and values of the CMAT and the character of St Ralph Sherwin himself. The seven characteristics considered are - witness, determination, service, fortitude, persistence, kindness and someone who focuses on the needs of the community. The award will be presented annually.
