All nominated Young Sports Ambassadors from around the Burgate Cluster of Primary Schools were invited to attend an Olympic Legacy Workshop at The Burgate School on Tuesday 29th January.
The Young Sports Ambassadors Programme is a National Initiative introduced by the Youth Sports Trust and delivered with two main objectives in mind: to increase participation in school sport and to raise and promote the Olympic & Paralympic values.
Our Year 10 representative Sports Ambassadors, Lily, Lizzie, Annie, Ellen, Harry and Callum all supported a variety of sessions throughout the day, which began with a team-building Benchball Tournament. This set a fantastic tone for the rest of the day as children took part in a range of workshops including an Olympic quiz and a Volleyball coaching session. Each group also created a poster to take back to display in each of their schools based upon the Olympic & Paralympic values. It certainly was an action packed day!
Representatives from each school also spent time working collaboratively with the Year 10 Silver Young Ambassadors to brainstorm and develop an action plan that they would then take back into school to try and inspire and enthuse others about sport.
Miss Bowring said, “The Young Ambassadors are certainly going to be busy with all of their upcoming plans, which ranged from running sports clubs for KS1, quizzes and inspirational assemblies. The Olympic Legacy appears to still be going strong around our Cluster and we very much hope to keep it that way!
