Eleven pupils at Mellor Primary School, Checketts Road, Leicester, have been recognised as Rotary Stars.
Nominated by teachers, friends or themselves, all 11 have demonstrated that they have have worked for the benefit of others.
All received a certificate and a lapel badge from Pam Spokes, the secretary of the Rotary Club of Leicester Novus, and member Jim Matthews at a celebration assembly at the school.
In addition, two also received gift vouchers of £5 as a reward for making exceptional efforts.
Krrish Limachiya, who was not photographed, was adjudged to be a Rotary Star for being helpful in class without prompting.
President Gemma Kiddy, who was also at the assembly presenting awards on behalf of The Spark Arts — her charity of the year last year — says: “These Rotary Star awards are designed to encourage good attitudes to learning, helping others and good citizenship.” Novus is working with other schools whose children deserve recognition and encouragement..
