A SCHOOL secretary is to be recognised at a national awards ceremony tomorrow (20).

Theresa Bellsham from Bromley High School has made it to the final of the fourth annual SecEd award ceremony for the work she does for her school, headteacher and community.

Ms Bellsham, who was nominated by headteacher Lorna Duggleby, is one of 30 PAs nationwide making it to the finals

Every PA in the final will be awarded with a certificate recognising them as a "PA of the Year"and six Highly Commended awards will also be handed out.

The top three PAs will be recognised with Bronze, Silver and Gold awards.

Finalists at the ceremony, who were chosen by an expert panel including SecEd editor Pete Henshaw, will receive their award from last year's champion Pam Waters, who is the headteacher's PA at Forest Gate Community School in east London.

Pete Henshaw said: "The spirit of these awards is to recognise the role that people like Theresa play in our schools. The standard of entries is fantastic, and so to have made the finals and be recognised as one of our PA of the Years for 2009 is a real testament to the work Ms Bellsham does, and the invaluable contribution she makes to her school and her headteacher day-in, day-out.
