Our Bronze Young Ambassadors are made up of 2 children from Year 6, who are elected by children from their class (including 2 vice ambassadors). The pictures above show this year's ambassadors, as well as the children who have been selected to be the Bronze Young Ambassadors next year.
These leaders were identified through their involvement within the school curriculum (PE and wider), involvement with extra-curricular activities like Dragon Sport, rugby clubs and involvement with clubs in the community.
'Every child hooked on sport for life' is an aspiration for Sport Wales. To achieve this it is crucia'l that a young person-centred approach is adopted.
The Young Ambassador Movement aims to empower and inspire young people to become role models and leaders through sport, by developing their confidence and skills in order to increase physical activity participation in others.
This approach will empower young people to make their own decisions through consultation, leadership and ownership.
The London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics was used by the Young Ambassadors as a catalyst to inspire change in others. The initiative will recognise and reward committed young sports leaders in our schools and communities with further training and opportunities.
Some of their responsibilities include:
- Promoting the Olympic and Paralympic values in school.
- Help to increase the number of children taking part in extra-curricular activities.
- Get equipment ready before the session.
- Start the warm-ups.
- Put equipment away.
- Speak in school assembly about why they enjoy taking part in sport and the events/festivals they've attended.
- Run a lunch time club.
- Take part in the school sports council.
'I like being a Bronze Young Ambassador because I enjoy it and I encourage people to participate in different sports and activities. I try to use all the Olympic Values'.

Please come back here regularly to see minutes of the meetings and projects we have been involved in to improve the school.
'I enjoy being a Bronze Ambassador because I get to try out different kinds of sports and teach other children what I have learned. I like being able to give my opinions about how sport can be improved in school.'
