Pupils at Somerford Primary School have the chance to become Sustrans Heroes in preparation for the 2012 Games!
At the begining of May Jonathan Dixon, Dorset Bike It Officer, came to lauch the Sustrans Heroes Project through an assembly. A letter and booklet were sent home later that day for the children to start competing. As the project draws to a close this is a reminder in order for the childre to hand in their booklets before Friday 22nd June 2012.
What is Sustrans Heroes?
Sustrans Heroes is one of the outstanding projects granted the London 2012 Inspire mark, the badge of the London 2012 Inspire programme, which recognises exceptional and innovative projects inspired by the 2012 Games.
Sustrans Heroes will run in the lead-up to the big event and will give pupils an opportunity to see how the Olympic and Paralympic values relate to their daily life, whilst promoting the positive health, environmental and economical benefits of cycling.
How can your child become a Sustrans Hero?
Your child can achieve Bronze, Silver or Gold by completing as many as possible of the 21 cycling-related tasks set out in the booklet. Some of these tasks will need to be completed out of school and all will need to be signed off by an adult.
Everyone who achieves the Bronze level will receive a certificate, those who achieve Silver will receive a certificate and badge, and those who achieve Gold will receive a certificate, medal, and be entered into a draw with all the other Gold achievers in Dorset to win a bike.
