The Carson Awards were generously started by late comedian and Integrated Education supporter Frank Carson, along with his son Tony Carson, a successful entrepreneur, in 2008. The awards are delivered through the Integrated Education Fund (IEF).
This year’s theme was ‘What Integrated Education Means to Me’.
Fort Hill IPS made an impressive video called ‘Lady Mary Peters, Our Golden Girl’. This video was so impressive in both content and production that the Carson Award judges awarded the entry ‘Special Award for Celebrating Achievement.’
On October 19, Integrated College Glengormley hosted the Carson Award Showcase. The Showcase event gave Integrated pupils who have won a Carson Award the opportunity to show their creative projects.
The Showcase gave Fort Hill IPS an opportunity to show their video, and also view the other winners of the Carson Awards 2023.
Paul Caskey, Head of Campaign, at the IEF said: “The IEF are delighted to be celebrating the 15th year of the Carson Awards.
"While the topic and themes of the Awards changes over the years, the quality never ceases to amaze.
"We want to congratulate Fort Hill Integrated Primary School as the worthy winners of the ‘Special Award for Celebrating Achievement’ for their amazing video ‘Lady Mary Peters, Our Golden Girl’.
"The IEF also wants to thank Tony Carson for his continued support for the Carson Awards, which is a fitting tribute to the legacy of our friend and supporter Frank Carson.”
