Bryngwyn to be Visited by Colin Jackson's 'Red Shoes' Academy

In partnership with the Welsh Government Department of Education and Skills, the Red Shoes Academy Ambassadors have been funded to visit 30 schools and colleges across Wales between November 2012 and February 2013.

This initiative is to bring the Olympic and Paralympic legacy of London 2012 to Wales and the Project aims to listen and engage first hand with young people and to stimulate, encourage and inspire actions and outcomes that promote the champion within.

The Academy states 'We want schools to pinpoint a specific issue that we may focus upon that may well produce measurable outcomes in the near future.  This is an initiative designed to marry the experiences of elite athletes with transferable skills across the school curriculum.'

Bryngwyn School is one of the lucky schools that have been chosen to receive a presentation to the whole School Assembly by one of the Ambassadors, followed by a bespoke session with Pupil Groups, Young Ambassadors, School Council etc. as suggested by the School.

The Ambassadors include Colin Jackson, Matthew Jones (Leeds Utd and Wales), Dave Roberts (11 times Paralympic Gold Medallist), Nicole Cooke (Olympic Cycling Gold Medallist), Michaela Breeze (Team Wales Captain, Olympian and Commonwealth Champion), Liz Johnson (Double Paralympic Gold Medallist) and Rhys Williams (European 400m Hurdles Champion).

More news to follow soon once the exact date for the visit has been arranged.
