Olympic visit for hundreds of Bristol school children
Nearly 500 Bristol school children set off this morning for a trip of a lifetime to the Olympic stadium.
The visit to the newly completed stadium has been organised by the City Academy in Redfield.
400 academy students have been joined by 170 pupils from six local primary schools. The children will be watching the School Games Finals where some of the country's best young athletes will be competing in swimming, cycling and athletics.
Organiser Heather Beach says "I think this is just the most fantastic opportunity for pupils in our community. A lot of people didn't get tickets for the Olympics so having the chance to go to the Olympic park for the whole day and look around the entire stadium, watch some really, really great sport and see where people like Usain Bolt are going to be competing in 79 days is just awesome. The inspiration doesn't end today - when we get back the children will create assemblies based on the visit and we have lots of special events planned around the Olympics"

Although no pupils for the City Academy, a specialist sports college, will be competing today, teachers have high hopes for the future and believe the combination of new athletics facilities, which opened last year, and the trip to the stadium will help inspire pupils to aim for future Olympic gold.
