St Mary’s RC Primary School youngster Cameron Gibson commended for his Christian values
Axminster Catenians have presented their award for excellence to a pupil at the town’s St Mary’s RC Primary School.
President Nat Bruzon handed the certificate to Cameron Gibson during the end of term assembly – to loud applause from children and staff.
The award is presented to the pupil who, in the opinion of the head teacher and staff, has provided an outstanding example to others of all round Christian values during their time in the school.
It is not directly related to academic or sporting achievements and is open to all pupils, including those who are not Catholics.
The Award takes the form of a large multi year plaque for the school, inscribed with the winner’s name, and a smaller plaque, together with a scroll, which the winner retains.

They are part of an international organisation with over 10,500 members ,who recently celebrated their Centenary . Members of Axminster Catenians are drawn from East Devon, West Dorset and South Somerset.
