Gold Awards Ceremonies


Every time a child reaches a Gold Level (every 100 hours), they will receive an invite to a Gold award ceremony.
You must confirm your attendance or your child will be unable to take part.

The letter will include:

  • the ticket price if appropriate
  • the date, time and venue of the ceremony
  • how to confirm attendance
  • what to wear
  • consent to share photos from the awards

Professional photographers will take portrait photos of children in graduation caps and gowns.

Please contact us if you need us to make reasonable adjustments to help you and your child access our awards ceremonies.
