I am delighted to inform you that The Winsford Academy, courtesy of Miss Louise Jones’ leadership of Personal Best, has successfully been accepted as a member of London 2012’s UK-wide reward and recognition scheme, the Get Set network, and we are now eligible for a number of exciting rewards from London 2012, including free tickets to the Games!
Get Set (london2012.com/getset) is the official London 2012 education programme, and through Personal Best our students have been learning about the Games and the Olympic and Paralympic Values.
We have now been recognised by the London 2012 Organising Committee as a school that is demonstrating its commitment to the Olympic and Paralympic Values, and have become a member of the Get Set network.
This means that we are now guaranteed free tickets to London 2012.
In addition, we will also:
- have the right to use the London 2012 education logo – look out for this on our school sign, letterhead and website;
- receive a plaque and certificate to show we are part of the London 2012 family;
- and we’ll be in with the chance of winning visits from athletes and the London 2012 mascots.
Over the coming months, we at the Winsford Academy will be getting ready for London 2012 by linking more work to the Games and ensuring that our students feel that they are a part of this once-in-a-lifetime event.
We look forward to updating you on this exciting work.
