ITV’s Victoria Heath shares when she met Adam
It was a pleasure to interview Adam who seemed a bit phased by the camera at first but turned out to be a complete natural when he was interviewed! It’s clear that he has a real passion for helping his classmates and most definitely deserved to win the Diana Award. His friends were the first to say how Adam helped them to settle in to their new school and we were particularly impressed by the way he helped other pupils in class and taught one of his friends to play the drums. Adam was also really patient with us when we had to film him drawing graphs and playing Jenga! Thanks for letting us come to the school and well done again on the award.
