School support staff across Bridgend were recognised for the contribution they make to education. Chris Elmore MP joined the teaching assistants and support staff at St Mary and St Patricks Catholic School in Maesteg to celebrate the Stars in our School campaign. Stars in our Schools is a celebration of school support staff and organised by the trade union, Unison.
The MP said “These often overlooked members of staff work tirelessly to support children and young people in our schools. They really are a credit to their professions.”
November 25 was known as Stars in Our Schools day to highlight the work of staff, including cooks, cleaners and caretakers.
