Berkhamsted Games 2012, will be held at Bridgewater Middle School on Thursday 5 July 2012, just three days before the London 2012 official torch relay passes through our region. Its focus will be all the sporting events in the middle of the programme, but the Opening and Closing ceremonies will be showcase for the Get Set work that our children have covered in school to learn about Olympic and Paralympic nations and values.
Starting on 4th July, Head Teachers and children will take part in a torch relay covering all 10 schools participating in the event. The torch will set off from Potten End First School and will travel through each school, passing from Head Teacher to Head Teacher, before ending at the host venue, Bridgewater Middle School on 5 July.

In Year 5 at Bridgewater we will be representing the African nation of Senegal, where a boy called Hamadou lives. We raise money each year to help pay for his schooling, so he can share in some of the opportunities that we all have through our education. What do you already know about Senegal? What can you find out?
