Swaray and Priory link up for Get Set Network

Postby EliCash » Wed Apr 04, 2012 4:48 pm

Just came across this story on Twitter. It's really positive to see an athlete giving back to the community and also to see schools such as Priory Sheridan signing up to the Get Set Network. It is the successful delivery of programmes such as this within schools that will help ensure the legacy of London 2012 will live for generations.

The Priory Sheridan School, a specialist residential school, welcomed elite athlete Tyrone Swaray to help celebrate its acceptance as a member of London 2012’s ‘Get Set Network.

Sheridan School, Thetford, Norfolk, has been successfully accepted as a member of London 2012’s UK-wide reward and recognition scheme, the ‘Get Set Network, which is the official education programme of London 2012. By being accepted, Sheridan School is guaranteed free tickets to London 2012.

Through the programme Sheridan School has been doing work linked with London 2012 and the Olympic and Paralympic games, and has now been recognised by the London 2012 Organising Committee as a school that is demonstrating its commitment to Olympic and Paralympic values.

London 2012 hopeful Tyson Swaray, visited Sheridan School and was given a short tour of the school, before meeting with parents and pupils. Tyrone then gave some of the pupils a special coaching session followed by demonstrations on how to run the 100 metres.

After a musical performance by the children, Tyrone gave a talk on the challenges of being a professional athlete, the values of the Olympics and what it means to be an Olympian.
