Schools are looking for heroes - help us to find them!

Schools across The Priory Learning Trust in Somerset want to find students who go the extra mile to make the world a better place, who show incredible kindness, character or heroism.

So much of the news is focussed on negative stories - but schools in The Priory Learning Trust are passionate to find their student heroes and reward them.

Parents, carers, staff and anyone in the communities can nominate the students - who will then be awarded with prizes at a special event in December.

Prizes are sponsored by the Grand Pier.

The students that are nominated are those making a positive change, whether this is at home, school or their community.

TPLT secondary schools across Somerset are involved. In Weston-super-Mare, it is Worle Community School Academy, Priory Community School Academy and in Highbridge it is The King Alfred School Academy,

The primary schools in the Trusr also have a heroes event each year.

All of the star students will be awarded prizes for their positive attitude.

Amy, 14, of Priory, said: “Nominate your heroes today!”

Director of Careers and founder of the scheme James Wilmot said: “Students every day are doing incredible things. It is wonderful to mark the achievements of these students and their amazing acts of kindness, generosity, and hard work.

“They are making their teachers and families' world a better place and we are passionate to celebrate with them.”

Jill Dando News now has over 100 reporters aged 8 to 18 writing positive good news stories in her memory.

The newspaper they helped set up is www.goodnewspost.co.uk

To nominate, Email with the student's name and reason why they are a hero to you.
