A TEAM of young people from Alnwick’s Duchess’s Community High School have become Young Ambassadors as part of the London 2012 Olympics.
The pupils, pictured above, are charged with encouraging others to become involved in the Olympic and Paralympic Games and take up sport, exercise and healthy eating.
Franki Clarke, from Northumberland School Games, said: “The young ambassador programme is a great opportunity for students in the high school’s Leadership Academy to work as a team.”
She added: “It is also a vehicle for the local school sport organising committee to be involved in competitions leading up to the Northumberland School Games, which is planned to be an annual event and is intended to be a legacy games for schools from Years 3 to 13.”
Chris Williams said: “I can’t wait until the Torch arrives in Alnwick. We have lots planned in the week running up to its stay and look forward to working with students from middle schools at archery and fencing events at Alnwick Castle.”
The students added that they feel proud to be part of the Games.
