The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your News -

A stu­dent from Thomas Dea­con Acad­emy has been awarded a spe­cial Prin­ci­pal’s Award for his con­tri­bu­tion to the com­mu­nity.

Lion Kh­eswa was skate­board­ing on top of a mul­ti­storey car park in the city cen­tre when he no­ticed some­one sit­ting alone by the edge. Re­al­is­ing the dan­ger, Lion in­tro­duced him­self and kept a con­ver­sa­tion go- ing un­til a po­lice of­fi­cer ar­rived. The in­di­vid­ual was then taken away to re­ceive help. Prin­ci­pal, Mr Walls, said: “Lion is an ex­cep­tional young man who clearly has the po­ten­tial to be­come an out­stand­ing leader of the fu- ture. He con­trib­utes to many as­pects of Acad­emy life, is a com­mit­ted mem­ber of our Com­bined Cadet Force and is pas­sion­ate about help­ing oth­ers. His ac­tions rep­re­sented great courage and com­pas­sion.”
