Hannah Gallaher, one of our Year 7 pupils, is one of the 8,000 torchbearers who were announced this week. Hannah will carry the torch in St Albans on Saturday 7 July and will be the youngest person to take part that day.
Hannah will be one of 20 12 year olds chosen from schools across the country to take part in this exciting event. Hannah, plays netball and lacrosse for the school, and is also a keen horse-rider; she was voted for by her classmates as someone who would represent the Olympic values of respect, excellence and friendship.
Hannah said she was very excited to be involved in this once in a lifetime event and that she is proud to able to promote sport in this way.
Mrs Duncan, Headmistress, commented that she was delighted that Hannah had been selected, and that she knew Hannah would be a wonderful ambassador for Princess Helena College and the Olympics.
