A SCHOOL has launched a programme which has been inspired by the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Bacton Community Middle School’s ‘Be the Best you can Be!’ programme aims to enable young people to discover and develop their potential.
The Legacy programme has been developed from last summer’s games and has received a £1,000 grant from Suffolk County Council and £400 from the PTA.
David Hemery has organised the initiative, he said: “All young people deserve our support to enable them to fulfil their dreams and ambitions.
“Every one of them has huge potential to achieve and overcome any barriers that are in their way. This is important for all our futures and we as adults need to be on their agenda and help them plan for success.”
