Head boys and girls from two Weston schools join together to find and celebrate achievements of their 2500 students in new ‘Be a Hero’ campaign.
Please note that students are not wearing uniform because it was a charity non-uniform day.
Priory and Worle’s Head’s leadership teams want to let the entire community know how brilliant their students and schools are.
This week the Head Boys and Girls, and Deputy Head Boys and Girls, met together at the launch of the ‘Be a Hero’ campaign in partnership with Hutton Moor Leisure Centre. The campaign aims to find inspirational students and to tell the community about them.
PCSA is the first member of the new The Priory Learning Trust (The PLT) and it is now assisting at WCSA, bringing the sharing of ideas, resources and support together.
PCSA Head Boy Will Bailey said: “The Be a Hero campaign is a great way for us to find out all about our inspirational students and to tell the whole community about them.”
WCSA Head Girl Iona Kempton said: “Our students are doing incredible things inside and outside of school. There is a real excitement around our community about the future.”
PCSA Head of School Jane McBride said: “It was wonderful to bring both schools together with the students sharing ideas. The Be a Hero campaign is already going down extremely well.”
WCSA Head of School Jacqui Scott said: “These are exciting days ahead for all of us and it was a joy to see students already joined together helping and supporting each other with a common aim.”
Kemo Jarju told students on the Period 6 journalism club about his career from being in the Media to a Weston community policeman.
He became Police Community Support Officer in Weston in April 2014.
PCSA aims to introduce students to a variety of exciting careers with visiting professionals always popping in to inspire.
Head of School Jane McBride said: “Kemo is such a popular figure around PCSA and it was lovely to hear about his exciting career.”
Students at Priory Community School are buzzing after they all received a free new book to read
Head of PCSA’s Library Rachel Harris said: “Our students have entered this new scheme with enthusiasm. Reading is not only fantastic for pleasure but is also critical for every other subject in schools.”
Head of School Jane McBride said: “We champion reading every day in every lesson. We tell the students that reading is the best brain exercise to help you revise. In short, the more you read the better the exam outcomes.”
Monthly prizes for Priory and Worle students showing kindness or outstanding attitude and character traits will get big rewards at Hutton Moor Leisure Centre.
The aim is to encourage even more wonderful behaviour at school and the community.
Teachers, Tutors and members of the public are being encouraged to email positive experiences of students from both schools and nominate them for a monthly prize.
Prizes in the new The Priory Learning Trust initiative include family swim tickets, children’s basketball lessons, cycle workout classes, and other healthy activities.
Head of Careers James Wilmot says “We have hundreds of heroes across both schools. We want to find and reward all that is good about each and every student.
“It’s about reinforcement of positive behaviour such as kindness, improvement in timekeeping, better behaviour in class, helping someone with their shopping or helping someone across the road. It could even be picking up litter outside the school. Basically it can be anything positive that helps people in school or in the community.”
Dave Somers, General Manager of Hutton Moor, said: “We are really pleased to be working with The Priory Learning Trust on this exciting project that helps students raise their aspirations. We always welcome opportunities to engage with the local community and young people.
“This partnership with Hutton Moor Leisure Centre and Worle and Priory schools, will reward students who really want to make a difference to themselves, their school and their community.
“Our prizes have been deliberately selected to encourage an active and healthy lifestyle for the students, their friends and their families.”
To nominate a student, please email email@example.com with the name of the student, their year group, school and the reason why they should be a rewarded as a hero.
A Worle Community School student has taken up her new role as Head Girl just weeks after working with African children at the Hope Village Project in Malawi.
Iona plans a career in archeology after doing A Levels and a University course possibly at UCL, but is determined to keep up her interest in oversees service especially areas like Nepal, where she lived with her family for 6 years.
Speaking about her recent trip to Africa she said: “My sister Sian and I enjoyed very much serving people in Malawi especially working alongside children who have very little and helping run medical programs with my mum who is an ITU nurse.
“I am also very excited to be starting at Worle as Head Girl and am determined to help here and make a difference in any way.”
James Wilmot’s first book ‘The Boy who became Father Christmas’, published in 2014 by The Difference Press became a best selling book on Amazon.
Before the book is published, James has recruited a team of students from the school to act as a focus group to make last minute changes to the story.
The students took a draft home with them and provided James with detailed feedback and ideas on how the story could be improved.
James said: “The students have been a massive help. Young readers are very discerning now. They are accomplished readers and know what makes a good book. Their feedback has been really valuable to the story and I will be making some significant changes to the book before it is published at Christmas time.”
‘Con of the Crannog’ is a children’s story spanning thousands of years from prehistory to the present day – inspired by James’ childhood experiences while growing up in rural Ireland.
It focuses on the lives of three children who all have a shared destiny on a mysterious island.
