Pupils' creations will be centre of attention
ON THE night of the awards ceremony, guests' tables will be dressed with moving decorations created by pupils from Sirius Academy.
Five 13-year-olds have designed a scene showing venue The Deep set in the Humber estuary, next to rolling green hills with a working wind turbine.
Courtney Hanna, Jade Hearne, Adam Kelsey, Joe Boxall and Jamie Gould created the centrepieces using LEDs, spray paint and a vacuum former to mould plastic.
Adam said: "Spray-painting them was the best bit. We went to the next lesson with silver paint all over our hands."

Mrs Bower said: "This group came up with the design and looked into it further.
"We did a 100-minute lesson designing it and two lessons of making it."
The sea around The Deep has been created with blue, water-absorbent jelly balls often used in flower arranging.
"They're just like tiny little seeds and you soak them in water and they expand," said Mrs Bower. "Florists use them for table decorations.
"We're really pleased with how the decorations have turned out."
