Congratulate your star pupils!

IT’S that time of year again! A-level results are out today and GCSEs next week.

So why not tell your kids, friends or relatives just how proud of them you are with a message in your favourite local paper.

Our lines are now open to text your messages of congratulations for both A-levels and GCSEs. But keep it short and sweet as there is a maximum of 160 characters for each message.

For A-levels:

Text the keyword DRS, a space, and then ALEV, another space, their name, your message and who it’s from, and send to 61500.

For example, DRS [space] ALEV [space] Steven Adam you were sensational love you loads from Jo Whiteley.

Lines close on August 23 at 11am.

For GCSEs:

Text the keyword DRS followed by a space, GCSE then another space, and then their name, your message and who it’s from and send to 61500.

For example: DRS [space] GCSE [space] Jack Ibberson, we’re so proud of you, love from mum and dad.

The lines for messages close on August 31 2011 at 10am.

Then we’ll be printing all your (suitable!) messages in the next edition of this paper.
