LSIS Star Awards - thanks to all

Wow! I am in complete shock and have had very little sleep. No official photographs yet but here's two taken before the awards ceremony last night at Old Billingsgate, London (a most amazing venue).

I'm pictured with my nominator and manager, Anne Haig Smith, and my 'personal guest' (my husband!).

All I can say at the moment is a big thank you to all of my site users - especially those of you that have contributed resources and made the site so successful. I couldn't have done it without you.

I'd also like to thank everyone at Abingdon and Witney College for their support, and, of course, the students whose individual learning needs inspired me to create many of the original site resources.

Thanks also to LSIS for putting on such a magnificent event and many congratulations to all the nominees who attended last night.

The offical photos are now on the Star Awards site
Here's one of them!

I am over the moon and the prize money will mean that, in time, you will notice some changes (for the better) on http://www.skillsworkshop.org/

Woo-hoo, an award for someone who DEFINITELY deserves it! I really hope you're not overlooked in the media reports on the awards. After the missed opportunity with A Certain Channel 4 Programme people need to know that literacy and numeracy tutors are out there in the community and ready to help!

Very well deserved. We couldn't believe it here at ITeC when we realised the Skills Workshop site was essentially one person's project!

Hi, Breakfast Cereals - I just wanted to say how good John Kerrane's activity
L2breakfastcereals is. I've been working through it myself and see lots of scope for using long division, decimals and an understanding of percentages in it. Thanks so much, Anne Carlill
