The Mayor of Gateshead dropped in to Gibside School in Whickham this week to help wish school leavers a bon voyage.

Seventeen of the school's older pupils reached their 11th birthday this year and all are now set to go onto new schools in Gateshead and elsewhere in the next academic year.

But before they left, Councillor Michael Hood, the Mayor of Gateshead, was invited to help out at Gibside's Leavers' Assembly on Tuesday (July 16, 2019) to wish the pupils the best of luck in their new schools.

The Mayor and Mayoress were fully employed presenting each pupil with their Record of Achievement, wishing them good luck and presenting them with a Gibside School bear as a special memento.

Parents, teachers and former teaching staff celebrated each child's achievements during a packed and emotional assembly, with every child doing a short presentation showing the skills they had achieved during their time at Gibside.
