With the 2016 Olympics due to take place in Rio in August, a number of the schools in Stockport are taking part in an Olympic Baton Relay on Friday 15th July. There are seven different routes, each named after one of the different Olympic and Paralympic values. Valley are part of the Excellence route, which seems quite apt for our pupils. Our young friends over at Queensgate Primary will be bringing the baton to Valley. We will then take the baton on a circuit round the school as part of a special assembly and after that a smaller group will head over to our close neighbours at Moss Hey Primary where we’ll hand the baton on to them. This promises to be a really exciting event for the children and a great opportunity to collaborate with our fellow schools in the locality.
