London 2012 on timetable for lucky few
12:14pm 14th June 2012
Students from Rossett School in Harrogate are going to play a part in the Olympics opening ceremony.
The eight youngsters, from Years 7 to 9, will make up a 2,000-strong Guard of Honour for the world's greatest athletes, lining the parade route.
Rossett School was selected after demonstrating commitment to living the Olympic and Paralympic values, incorporating them into the school's life and curriculum.
Deputy headteacher John Lawton said: "Rossett will be supporting the Moroccan team during the celebrations, so we've been busy putting together displays of Moroccan culture and sporting stars and we'll be learning to greet each other in Arabic and Berber, the country's main languages.
"It's a tremendous honour to be chosen to take part in this event, which for many of the athletes will be their first experience of the London 2012 Games. It was very difficult to select just eight students to represent Rossett - we asked them to describe what the Olympics meant to them and give the reasons why they felt they should be chosen. All those who were successful truly try and live by the Olympic values of respect, excellence and friendship and thoroughly deserve their place."
As well as having the chance to cheer on the Athletes' Parade, the students will be able to tour the Olympic Park beforehand.
13-year-old Jack Smith, one of those who will travel to London, said: "The Olympic Games represent a special and unique opportunity for the countries of the world to come together. It will be a genuine privilege to represent my school on such an important occasion."
Rossett School's celebrations also include a special Primary School Olympic Games.
Taking place on Monday 18 June, around 300 pupils from schools across Harrogate will take part in a day of Olympic and Paralympic sports, with an inter-school athletics competition in the afternoon.
There will also be a whole-school 'walking bus' from Rossett School to York Place to watch the Olympic Torch pass through Harrogate on Tuesday 19 June.
