We were delighted to hear that our Online Safety storybook and lesson plans were shortlisted in the ERA awards in the Primary Resource or Equipment (including ICT) category. The ERA award ceremony took place last Friday at the National Conference Center in Birmingham.
The NOS team were exhibiting at The Education Show in Birmingham that week, so it was a short journey over to the Conference Centre in the evening. We were greeted by an elegant reception, followed by a delicious three-course dinner. All of the guests on our table were also finalists for awards, and it was great to meet them to share ideas and discover what resources they have created for schools.
Our category was 5th in the night, so we waited patiently to hear who the winners were! Unfortunately, we didn’t win this time, but a huge congratulations to Ohbot, who won with their educational robot and also to the other companies who were commended in the category.
James Southworth, Co-Founder & Online Safety Author said, “It is an honour to be shortlisted in the Primary Resource category of the ERA Awards, and to be rewarded for our efforts in delivering outstanding online safety resources for the classroom. Well done to the whole team involved in bringing the ‘Oscar’s Adventures in the Online World’ project to life!”
To end the night on a high, the team went to the disco and had a thoroughly enjoyable evening!
