Courageous student receives award
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.”
