HARDWORKING students at a Hatfield school were rewarded in one of the best ways possible - a trip to Rome!
Eight pupils from Onslow St Audrey's School were selected to enjoy an all expenses paid day trip last month to the Italian capital.
Paul Meredith, headteacher of the Old Rectory Drive school, said he wanted to reward pupils for hard work and progress.
He said: "Each year we invite about 250 students to our rewards evening where their hard work, progress, service to the community and effort are recognised.
"Eight names are drawn from a hat, and these lucky students enjoy an expenses-paid day trip.
"We want both to reward students and broaden their horizons."

In the past students have been to Paris, Barcelona and Venice.
The destination of the rewards visit is chosen by the student school parliament.
However, parliament members are growing increasingly worried by the carbon footprint of flying abroad, so alternative forms of transport may be used.
Mr Meredith added: "Next year we may go by Eurostar!
