The  target audience is pupils studying Humanities /RE Learning for Life /Social Studies subjects at Key Stages 3, 4 & 5.

  • Screening of the film entitled Legacy - 90 minutes.
  • A Motivational speaker talking about the Olympic values.
  • A Workshop on the Olympic values.
  • Ideas as to how schools can become involved in London 2012 projects.

There are places for twenty schools to attend the event and each school will be able to bring a maximum of 10 people including pupils. The only cost to schools will be transport to and from the venue. Refreshments will be provided on the day. School's are asked to arrive at 9.30am on the day to register.
