Can you support us as a 'Champion School'?This Friday our Sixth Form volunteers for Get Set Community Action are fundraising for Special Olympics Ulster. Earlier this year Bangor Academy was chosen by the Youth Sport Trust as a Champion School for their Get Set For Community Action initiative.

We act as a hub in our community to promote Olympic values in partnership with Special Olympics Ulster and this term sees some of the results of that work.

A willing team of enthusiastic and sporty sixth formers have already been trained to plan, promote and run community sport events. They have just held a  five-a-side football match for five local special schools and they are taking part in a bid to help Special Olympics Ulster raise £70,000 in one day. If you see them down in Bangor on Friday 22nd April, throw what you can spare in their buckets!

Last week we welcomed: Tor Bank School, Clifton Special School, Longstone, Killard and Fleming Fulton to our five-a-side football tournament. Congratulations to Longstone and Killard who made the final. A really fun day was had by all especially our sixth form volunteers:

Josh Wynne (Head Boy)
Lewis Stephenson (Deputy Head Boy)
Jamie Mitchell
Natasha Mellon (Deputy Head Girl) 
Adam Johnston
Charlotte Turpitt and
Thomas Gray

The Academy already hosts Special Olympic evening sessions in badminton, athletics and basketball but we are keen to promote these sessions and encourage new members to join. If you know of someone who qualifies for Special Olympics sport or you are interested in coaching contact Liz Martin (02890 262 773)  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
