YOUNG ambassadors for sport are preparing to put primary youngsters through their paces to celebrate the Olympics.
A group of five Olympic Young Ambassadors from secondary schools on Wearside are organising a large sporting event for 630 Year 6 schoolchildren, to take place at Monkton Stadium on Thursday, June 21.
The children will take part in a variety of sports, including football, tag rugby, quick cricket and track events.
Alice McGee, an Olympic Young Ambassador and Year 10 Oxclose School pupil, said: “This event is to promote the up coming Olympic and Paralympic Games the country will be hosting.
“We hope to get as many people involved as possible.”
