Sandon pupil honoured at this years ‘Children of Courage Awards’
Lucie Morris is a lively, beautiful, 6 year old pupil at GANF Sandon School. She has been honoured at the 2017 Grantham Rotary Club Children of Courage Awards.
Guests gathered at The Urban Hotel in Grantham to hear inspiring tales of bravery, with the lunch and prize giving organised by the Rotary Club of Grantham Kesteven. Lucie’s plaque was presented to her by Chris Davies, District Governor Elect, as well as Cllr Linda Wootten Mayor of Grantham and Cllr Judy Smith Chair of SKDC.
Lucie was diagnosed very early on with limited mobility and severe developmental delay. Lucie has difficulties with social communication and relies heavily on people working closely with her to understand her needs. It takes Lucie time to settle into new environments and she needs constant supervision to ensure her safety. Despite all the barriers to her learning Lucie loves going into school, taking part in lessons and playing with her friends.
Lucie had difficulties learning to walk when she first started at Sandon School but has made excellent progress with her
mobility and now loves to chase her friends around the playground as well as holding hands with other children in her class.
Lucie’s class teacher at Sandon School Laura Sooley said, “It’s an absolute pleasure to be part of a dedicated team of professionals working with Lucie and her family. Her great attitude to school life is an inspiration to us all”.
