Pupils set for ceremony role

Have your say

PUPILS from a South Yorkshire school are heading for London’s Olympic stadium to help welcome athletes to the competition’s spectacular opening ceremony.

Children from Wickersley School and Sports College in Rotherham will form a guard of honour to line the route as athletes make their way through the Olympic Park into the stadium on Friday, July 27.

The children will join pupils from 249 other schools to make up the 2,000-strong guard of honour, holding lanterns and banners.
