Teachers and pupils from primary and secondary schools assembled at the Village Hotel in Ashton on Monday afternoon for the Inspire Tameside Awards 2019
The annual event, which is organised by Tameside School Sports Partnership, is held every year to celebrate and recognise the achievements of sporting excellence within schools.
Pupils from Inspire Academy, Ashton, started the event with a rendition of The Greatest Showman's "A Million Dreams', before Russell Scott headteacher Steve Marsland gave an inspirational speech on the themes of passion and dedication within sport.
There was also a question and answer session with special guest and Manchester United Ladies' number 7, Ella Toone, who reflected on her journey in the game.
The ceremony took place shortly after, with the awards being presented to recipients by Civic Mayor of Tameside, Cllr Leigh Drennan.
We were at the event and spoke to Emma Toone, Tameside SSP Partnership Development Manager, who reflected on a successful year amongst other things.
