Good Samaritan students who have selflessly helped people have become real-life Christmas Heroes

Students at Worle Community School Academy in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset were awarded certificates and prizes after demonstrating selfless superb acts of kindness and outstanding character.

It included students who took cares of crisis’ situations, selfless caring for family members who have illnesses and disabilities, clearing up community glass and returning supermarket trolleys, and other acts of incredible kindness.

The students were winners in the Christmas Heroes campaign at Worle Community School Academy, part of The Priory Learning Trust, in partnership with the Grand Pier.

An array of amazing students at a celebration breakfast with Principal Mark Tidman and Director of Secondary Education at the Priory Learning Trust, Gregg Morrison, were honoured for a range of amazing achievements including helping the homeless, charities and people in the community.

The Christmas Heroes initiative saw them rewarded with prizes sponsored by the Grand Pier including a free rides pass.

Principal Mark Tidman said: “Every single day our students amaze us with their huge kindness and selfless acts across the school and community.
