Rushey Hero

Hero

A recognition of Joshwyn’s (9HAM) outstanding bravery.

During the summer holidays, whilst visiting his grandparents, a fire engulfed their home. Joshwyn took control of the situation by
alerting 999, before assisting his elderly grandparents safely out of the house, which had now filled with smoke. Joshwyn also
supported his sister who experienced a panic attack, whilst waiting for paramedics and fire crew to arrive.

Since the fire Joshwyn has been interviewed by the Leicester Mercury and BBC Radio Leicester. He was also nominated for a
Citizen’s Honour Award and was invited for Afternoon Tea with Lord Mayor. He will be receiving the Prestigious Principal’s Award
at Rushey Mead Academy for his bravery.

We are so proud of you Joshwyn. Rushey Mead’s very own hero!
