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 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.
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.

- Promoting the Olympic and Paralympic values in school.
- Help to increase the number of children taking part in extra-curricular activities.
