It was a wonderful afternoon at the Hull Grange Park Hotel where the best and the brightest of Hull and East Yorkshire’s education sector met to celebrate their work and achievements. The fourth Hull Daily Mail and Sewell Facilities Management Golden Apple Education Awards kicked off with an angelic choir from Hymers College. It was washed down with a fish and chip dinner, followed by coffee provided by Hull Collegiate School’s Safi Coffee company. Phil Batty, director of public engagement and legacy at Hull City of Culture 2017, was the guest speaker at the event and spoke about his experience living in Hull when he was 13, and how much the city has changed since.It was once again hosted by BBC weather presenter Keeley Donovan. The awards were judged by a four-strong panel including Greenway Academy headteacher Simon Bush, Dorchester Primary Headteacher Gabby Olsson, Hull City Council’s director of children, young people and family services, Alison Murphy and Sewell’s Martin Stead.
