Sixth Formers Rescue Pensioner

Three of our students were recently featured in a KentOnline article, following a superb example of goodwill. Owen, Nathan and Harry rescued an 81-year-old man when he fell ill in the middle of Rainham. Harry said he and his friends were heading into Rochester when they spotted Richard in difficulty.

"We were just crossing the road and we saw a man in front of us. He was stumbling for a bit and then he fell backwards. My friend, Owen, caught him before he hit the floor."

Richard Kimble's son, Russell, came to the school to give his personal thanks to the boys. Shaking them warmly by the hands, he presented them with a handwritten letter and a £50 Amazon voucher.

"I just wanted to come and shake your hands and say thank you for what you did for my dad," he said. "When you have parents who are 81 years old you will worry about them going out and about like I do and you will understand how I feel about what you did. Me and my family are so grateful you did not just leave him. You made sure he was okay, got him some water and even carried his shopping home for him." We are immensely proud of our students!
