A prestigious awards night celebrating unsung heroes of Pool Academy is set to take place again this year.

Last summer students were invited to the Community Awards after wowing teachers with their charity work, volunteering, caring and tales of overcoming obstacles.

During the evening their heart-warming, selfless acts shown towards members of their community were applauded.

Pool Academy staff now hope to find more unsung heroes for this year’s event.

Nick Hamblin, the event organiser, said: “In July, we are again planning to hold our prestigious sponsored Community Awards.

“Our first event was held last year at Heartlands where we celebrated the amazing commitment and achievements of a number of students who contributed so much to the lives of others within our wider community.

“In planning for this year, we are asking parents and carers to also let us know of anything that your children are doing to benefit others, so that no-one misses the chance of receiving an award.”

Rachel Facey, from Pool Academy, said: “So many of our children are involved in community projects that really go that extra mile for others. However, many are very humble about their efforts, and do not like to ‘brag’ about what they are doing.

“We are asking you to nominate them so we can show the world how amazing they truly are.”

All nominations will be considered for an award.
