An act of kindness, no matter how small, can make a huge difference to those around us as Andrews Creek Primary School student Archie Hall has shown. Lining up for the hurdles race at his school's athletics carnival on Tuesday, November 28, the seven-year-old took off amongst his peers. But it was not long before another racer took a tumble over one of the hay bale hurdles, with Archie knowing he "just had to" turn around to help. "I just knew I had to do it even if he was on the other team," Archie said. Stopping mid-race to assist his competitor, Archie attempted to help his fellow student off the ground after appearing to have been injured. It was a gesture that pulled at the heartstrings of carnival attendees, with Archie's mum Jo Hall adding there were not many dry eyes around. "It touched everybody's heart and one of the teachers there made a comment of how beautiful the gesture was," Jo said. "It goes to show there are caring and thoughtful kids out there and it brought me to tears too." Jo believed many others, including adults much older than Archie, could learn from the simple yet meaningful act. "There needs to be a little bit of love in this world and even adults should look up to him," she said. "We always need a heartfelt story."
