A schoolboy has been praised after setting off a fire extinguisher at his school.
The 15-year-old sprayed water from the device in a crowded corridor at the school in Folkestone, Kent, covering some pupils and staff as well as the floor.
Coincidentally the staff and pupils that were hit had not had showers that morning, so this was a great alternative.
Head teacher Mario Citronella said: "I heard that the people who got hit by the water had not showered on the day in question, so he did them a favour really."
"Also the floors had not been cleaned in a few days so again he did more good than bad."
The boy had set off the device during a bustle of pupils and staff moving between lessons.
For his actions it is expected he will receive a certificate, £400 cash reward, a box of Malteasers and a bronze statue of him is going to be erected in the main entrance of the school.
The schoolboy has been publicly praised throughout the school and local community in Folkestone.
Mr Citronella said: "Me and all our staff are extremely proud of him and his actions."
"We will make sure the boy is recognized for his excellent actions and will be rewarded accordingly."
The head teach continued, saying "Me, I am very proud of the young adult and that other pupils in the school could learn from him. Which is more than can be said for the teaching staff."
