School greets Games with own cer­e­mony

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - News -

THE Tow­ers school in Ken­ning­ton cel­e­brated the Olympic and Par­a­lympic han­dover to Lon­don 2012 by hold­ing its own cer­e­mony.

The event al­lowed the school to of­fi­cially pledge its own sign­ing up to the val­ues of the Olympics.

Head teacher Malcolm Ram­sey, the chair of gov­er­nors Rita Hawes and Sabrina Bal­dock from the stu­dent coun­cil signed the school cer­tifi­cate pledg­ing to up­hold the Olympics val­ues of per­sonal ex­cel­lence, re­spect, in­spi­ra­tion, determination and equal­ity.

Mr Ram­sey said: “As a lead­ing sports school we will be sup­port­ing the op­por­tu­ni­ties that would come from a Bri­tish Olympics.”

Hopes are high at the school that English teacher Gemma Carter will con­tinue to make progress in her sport of moun­tain bik­ing and that she may be a Bri­tish rep­re­sen­ta­tive at the Lon­don Games in 2012.
