With the Olympics and Paralympics less than a year away, as a Get Set Network school, Harrow Way Community School was keen to support its Cluster primary schools by preparing their Young Bronze Ambassadors for the busy year ahead.
Two Year 6 students from each of the Harrow Way Cluster schools, Portway Junior, Knights Enham Junior, Roman Way Primary, Kimpton CE Primary and Appleshaw St Peterâ€™s CE Primary Schools arrived keen and ready to learn how they could be excellent Ambassadors for their schools.
Chosen for their dedication to sport and their leadership qualities, the ten students will have specific roles back in their schools, including promoting the Olympic and Paralympic Values of Friendship, Respect, Excellence, Determination, Inspiration, Courage and Equality, as well as helping lead competitions and festivals.
Harrow Wayâ€™s Year 11 Silver Ambassadors, Eleanor Roche and Ella Howells, were on hand to support School Sport Coordinator, Rhonda Sturges, during the afternoon. All Ambassadors received a T-shirt to wear back at school, took part in team games to get to know each other and to promote leadership, including the inclusive game of New Age Kurling. They also learned how the Get Set website can help them back at school and created their own presentation for use in an Assembly. Action planning and a last team game ended the afternoon, before goodie bags were received, photographs taken and farewells said.
