The Manchester Culture Awards have just been held, and our very own Stanley Grove Primary School won the award for Promotion of Culture and Education, thanks to its fantastic Build a Bridge Project, which brings pupils and cultural organisations together.
They were up against some stiff competition including the Royal Northern College of Music and Manchester Libraries – but the judges singled out Stanley Grove in the category that looks for an organisation, school, group or individual that supports children’s and / or young people’s education, through cultural and creative activity.
The Manchester Culture Awards are organised by Manchester City Council and supported by the Manchester Evening News. They aim to promote, recognise and reward organisations who are involved in art, heritage, performance, photography, film or craft, that helps to shine a light on the rich culture of the city.
A huge well done to the Creative Team at Stanley Grove, especially Emma Martin who created the programme and also won The Outstanding Contribution Award on the night.
Councillor Luthfur Rahman, Executive Member for Skills, Culture, and Leisure, Manchester City Council, said: “This was another phenomenal year for the Manchester Culture Awards, both in terms of the number of entries and also the standard of those nominated – which was quite simply off the scale and world-class.”
