School greets Games with own ceremony
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.
