OLYMPIC fever grip has gripped Hameldon Community College.

Students and teachers from the school have been officially welcomed to the London 2012’s Get Set network, in recognition of their commitment to the Olympic and Paralympic Values.

The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympics Games (LOCOG) awarded Hameldon Community College a plaque and certificate to acknowledge their involvement in the London 2012 education programme, through the emphasis on sport within the school and the work the school does to encourage sport in the local community and primary schools.

They now join schools and colleges across the UK as members of the special London 2012 community and will receive access to exclusive competitions and 2012 Games related opportunities over the coming years, including the chance of winning visits from athletes and the London 2012 mascots.

Headteacher Gill Broom said: “I am proud of the college that it has been accepted in to the Get Set network for their exciting work around the Olympic Values of friendship, excellence and respect and the Paralympic Values of inspiration, courage, determination and equality.”.
