Bromley schools urged to get their skates on for 2012 Olympic tickets
PUBLISHED: 18:13 14 December 2011
Pupils in Bromley are being urged to nag their teachers to sign up for the chance to apply for London 2012 Olympic tickets earmarked for schools.
In Bromley just 67 per cent of schools have applied for the Ticketshare scheme, which aims to give one in eight schoolchildren the chance to get to the front row of the Games.
Meanwhile 95 per cent of schools in Greenwich, which is an Olympic host borough, have requested tickets.
Mayor of London Boris Johnson said: “The Get Set network will give London’s children a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see the greatest show on earth in their home city, and embrace the experience of the Games first hand. This is my direct message to teachers, parents and children – don’t miss out.
“Kids, you should be pestering your teachers endlessly to make sure they are doing all they can to get you to the Games.”
The scheme gives children the chance to watch first class sport at the Olympic Park as well as other venues
However some schools have been slow to apply and they need to sign up by tomorrow, Friday December 16 at www.getset.london2012.com
