National Citizen Service Star School Awards

On Thursday 19 th October, 2017, G Conomics and Mr Ridley were delighted to attend the NCS Star School Awards Dinner, hosted at The Discovery Museum, Newcastle. After a brief drinks reception, where delegates were invited to network with colleagues, we were ushered to the top floor where we enjoyed a fabulous meal, and, of course, the awarding of the Star Awards. NCS graduates hosted the entire evening with great aplomb, handing over part way through to Stephen Greene (, CEO of Rockcorps and Chair of NCS, and Jessica Taplin ( ), CEO of vInspired, who both gave powerful addresses, outlining the virtues of social enterprise. G Conomics and Mr Ridley were only too pleased to be able to represent Emmanuel College students, collecting the Star School Award for Gateshead. The Gateshead award was generously sponsored by Gateshead College and we were pleased to be able to share the presentation with Helen and Katy. Throughout the evening, NCS graduates confidently shared their volunteering experiences with all those in attendance.
