Bridlington Schools To Hold Inter-School Torch Relay Ahead of Olympic Flame's Arrival

In the spirit of the Olympic Games, the schools of Bridlington will unite with an inter-school torch relay on the morning of Monday, 18 June, the day the official Olympic Torch Relay arrives in the town at 3pm.

Each team will be transported to the next school in the relay before running the final leg, with the torch, to the school's entrance.

The relay will start and finish at Martongate, getting underway at 9am with the Headlands' team returning at 12noon, taking the torch onto Martongate's field to the finish line.

Each school's team of runners will be invited to the finish line to welcome the final leg runner's home.

Di Levitt, deputy head teacher of Martongate Primary School, said: "The Olympic Games has been set to leave a legacy for the youth of the country. Occasions like this give children memories they will remember for the rest of their lives. It is a fantastic opportunity to give the children of our town a chance to shine and hopefully inspire them."

Councillor Julie Abraham, cabinet portfolio holder for children, young people and local authority schools at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: "The Bridlington inter-school relay is an excellent example of how a community has come together to celebrate the Olympic Torch Relay.

"The council would like to congratulate the schools for setting this event up and would like to wish all those taking part the very best for what will be a memorable day."
