An Altrincham school devoted to the London 2012 Olympicahas been named Get Set Network school of the month.
In just its first month of joining the scheme, Navigation Primary School received a letter from the London 2012 Organising Committee (LOCOG) chairman Lord Sebastian Coe.
Out of 9,000 schools across the UK, the school received the award for demonstrating outstanding commitment to living the Olympic and Paralympic values.
PE Coordinator at Navigation Primary School, Matthew Payne said: “All the pupils and staff at Navigation are determined to immerse themselves fully in all that is positive about London 2012.”
All schools can join the Get Set reward and recognition scheme where members receive a plaque and certificate and the right to use the London 2012 Education logo.
“Incorporating the Olympic values in education will help us achieve a great legacy from the London 2012 games and I would encourage all schools to get involved by 16 December to gain the maximum benefit from the programme," said Executive Councillor Jonathan Coupe.
"This is a great achievement for the school and I would like to congratulate them on all the hard work they have been doing around London 2012.”
Navigation Primary School is committed to spreading Get Set’s Values internationally and engaging its students in a variety of cross curricular activities in the build up to London 2012.
The school recently held and Olympic art day where the children created London 2012 inspired artwork using different media.
Seb Coe said: “I am proud to see that Navigation Primary School has been recognised as Get Set 'school of the month' and is actively engaged in exciting work around the Olympic and Paralympic Values.'
To continue recognising the values of the scheme, the school has organised an Olympic themed Open Evening aimed at celebrating the work that the school has completed over the last year that is linked to the Games.
