Harry Carter is an Olympic torch bearer
On 26th May 2012, Harry Carter carried the Olympic torch across the causeway to Barry Island.

"Harry has shown to be model pupil since joining school last September. He personifies the Olympic values of friendship, excellence, and respect in all activities, within school and community.. He has involved himself in a number of different activities as a pupil, showing himself to be a superb role model for fellow pupils by always striving to achieve his best performances while also endeavouring to assist fellow performers in their quest to improve their sporting skills.. Harry's predominant sport is athletics and cross-country but has also represented his school in rugby, football and gymnastics, while also being an important active member of local football and athletics clubs, alongside other family members, showing a true sense of community spirit.. I feel Harry would be an excellent ambassador as a torchbearer in 2012, representing himself, his family and school while also giving him a deserved moment to shine. ."
