A SCHOOL in Harpenden has been recognised for leading a number of Olympic-themed activities.

Roundwood Park School has based its house system on the seven Olympic and Paralympic values, and students have been taking part in Olympic-themed events.

This month the school has been selected as the Get Set network school of the month based on its enthusiasm towards promoting the 2012 games.

Head of PE Michelle Rooney said: "It's great to see the school getting into the spirit of things and understanding that the games is about much more than sport.

"As a school we have been working on leaving an Olympic legacy and this is a wonderful achievement to support us. I am so excited and well done to Roundwood Park School."
