Local Heroes 2018

What is the Teaching Award?

The Teaching Award at Eagle Radio's Local Heroes is given to an individual who not only teaches the curriculum but really cares for their students and helps them way beyond the classroom.

Perhaps they have spent time helping pupils overcome anxieties, tutoring them during exam time or have inspired them to reach their full potential.

Bill James

Meet Our Winner Bill James

The nomination said...

"An Aldershot headteacher has been hailed a hero after giving life-saving CPR to one of his pupils. 

Bill James from St Joseph's Primary School leapt into action after a pupil had collapsed in class. 

The 4-year-old suffered a febrile convulsion and a member of staff ran into the reception area carrying her. 

Helped by members of staff who had recently attended a first aid course together, Bill realised the girl's heart had stopped and began to give her chest compressions and rescue breaths for two minutes before she started to breathe for herself."
