Last week three of our children attended a Young Bronze Ambassador Conference, in Chesterfield, run by the NE Derbyshire School Sport Partnership. The role of the Young Bronze Sports Ambassador is to bring the inspiration and magic of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games to other young people in their School.
The children listened to an inspiring talk from an Olympic Games Maker and took part in Boccia session (a Paralympic sport) led by two Young Platinum Sports Ambassadors from a local secondary school. Finally, after a presentation on how to set up a School Sport Organising Crew, the children got together in a brainstorming session to decide how they were going to start to take on an active role in the selection of sports in their own schools. It is hoped this will lead to new sports competitions taking place within the school and eventually between schools.
