Children and young people from primary and secondary schools across the borough attended a special event that recognised the achievements they had made during the school year.
Everyone at the event had been nominated to receive an award by their school.
Certificates were presented for outstanding academic achievement, outstanding achievement in the field of arts and sports, outstanding progress and outstanding service to the school community.
Cabinet Member for Education, Cllr John Fuller, said: “This is always a very special event in the Council diary.
“These children and young people have worked hard during the school year and it’s only right that their efforts are recognised.
“I thank the schools for continuing to support the awards by providing us with their nominations.”
The prestigious event, that took place in the Council Chamber at the Civic Offices, Bexleyheath, was attended by the Mayor of Bexley, Cllr Howard Marriner and school representatives.
This year 69 primary pupils and 46 secondary pupils were nominated for an award at the ceremony which took place over three sessions.
St Thomas More Catholic Primary School Choir performed two songs at the primary event.
