Young Ambassador Conference 2016

ya3The National Young Ambassador Conference 2016 took place at the Edinburgh International Climbing Centre (Ratho) and Wester Hailes Education Centre was represented by Adam Pearson and Jordan Meechan, S4 pupils, who are our new appointed Young Ambassadors for the School.

ya4This was an exciting day for them as they met other Young Ambassadors from across Scotland and also got to work alongside some well known athletes and Rio Olympic medal winners!

ya5The conference was opened by Olympic swimmer Robbie Renwick winner of  three silver medals in Rio! They also met Caitlin McClatchey (Swimmer), Colin Gregor (Previous rugby 7’s Captain and current coach) and Gemma Fay (Women’s Scottish Football team Captain and Goal Keeper).

During the conference Adam and Jordan attended various workshops to assist them in their first year’s journey as Young Ambassadors.

Please feel free to approach them or Ricky Karoyan, (Active Schools Co-ordinator) if you have suggestions as to how we could improve our sport programme and also if you would like to volunteer with us.
