London 2012 Get Set Network
Holmwood House is now a member of the London 2012's UK-wide reward and recognition scheme, the Get Set network.
Get Set is the official London 2012 education programme and, through this programme, our pupils will be learning about the Games and the Olympic and Paralympic Values. The children will be undertaking work linked to London 2012 and the Olympic and Paralympic Values, such as an 'Around the World Day', sporting activities, competitions and class work relating to the Games.
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:
- have the right to use the London 2012 education logo on our school sign, letterhead and website;
- will receive a plaque and certificate to show we are part of the London 2012 family;
- will be in with the chance of winning visits from athletes and the London 2012 mascots!
Over the coming months, Holmwood's 'Olympic Committee' will be getting ready for London 2012 by linking more work to the Games and ensuring that the pupils feel that they are a part of this once-in-a-lifetime event.
