ALSAGER School pupils are to play a major role in raising awareness of the 2012 Olympics.
A number of Year 11 pupils have been chosen to become Sporting Ambassadors.
Their role will be to promote a wide range of sports and raise awareness of the 2012 London Olympic Games and Paralympics.
Leading ambassador Emily Pumford has already attended a conference at Lancashire County cricket ground.
She learned about the key role of the ambassadors, that of spreading good news about the benefits of sport throughout their communities.
Emily has been joined as a Young Ambassador for Sport by Jack Sherratt, Caroline Edgely, Courtney Fumerola, Zoe Young, Eve Griffiths and Ami Priestman.
They have the responsibility of being top sporting role models among primary schools in Alsager and the surrounding area.
They will be promoting the key ideals of respect, friendship and excellence through a wide variety of sporting activities over the next few years.
“I am amazed by the passion and dedication young people are prepared to devote to helping others get involved in sport,” said Alsager School sport co-ordinator Steph Moore.
“I am proud to be associated with these pupils, and with this initiative.
“Pupils like this make my job even more enjoyable."
