We have had a lovely phone call from a member of the public regarding a young learner who had helped a lady cross the road in Houghton. Jennifer, who works at Lloyds Bank, telephoned the school to praise the learner. She said 'the boy, with no hesitation, passed his bag to his friend and politely helped the lady cross the road.' During assembly, Mrs. Cooper asked if anyone knew who the learner was, and Owen raised his hand. Mr. Turton, Owen's coach said 'I'm not surprised that Owen has done this good deed, as he is an excellent learner, who is very thoughtful." Well done Owen, we are all very proud of you!
