STUDENTS at a Highbridge school spread kindness to pupils and staff by doing good deeds.

Pupils at The King Alfred School Academy were asked to complete a random act of kindness by staff this week such as buying a gift, saying some kind words, or doing a good deed.

Once these acts were achieved, the students wrote their names on blue balloons to signify their good deeds and the balloons which were tied to a tree in the school’s grounds.

The activities also saw 22 students become Princess Diana Ambassadors during anti-bullying week.

The ambassadors have been trained by the Princess Diana Award, a charity that sets out to put a stop to bullying.

Anti-bullying ambassador Hoshi Speight said “It is my job to make everyone feel comfortable at school, I also did this at my primary school.”

The student ambassadors have also set up a ‘buddy bench’ on which one student will be sat during lunch times to talk to any students who need it.

Nathan Jenkins, principal of The King Alfred School Academy, said: “We are very proud of our students and the random acts of kindness project was one of many initiatives driven by them.

"It reminds every student that respect, kindness and good character are essential both in life and in our academy.”
