TALENTED sports stars Tiarnan Crorken and Colette Meade are proud to be Blessed Trinity’s Young Ambassadors.

The Year 10 students have been selected by the school to take the sporting message into primary schools in Burnley.

Both were selected by the Burnley school’s PE department and recently attended the Youth Sport Trust Young Ambassadors Conference at the University of Central Lancashire.

Team GB Judo star Sophie Cox, who competed at London 2012 Olympics, and World champion Inline skater Jenna Downing attended the sessions.

“I am really proud to be a Young Ambassador,” said Tiarnan, who runs for Pendle Athletic Club and will compete in the Northern cross-country championships for his club soon.

“It was interesting on the course as we were taught what characteristics we need to be a good leader, we were taught to be determined and what we need to be teach multi-events.”

Colette, 14, is a keen netballer and plays for Ribble Valley Netball Club as well as swimming. She also attended the conference which consisted of a variety of workshops ranging from a personal development session, background to the school games, team building, leading practical activities in Key Stage One and handball.

“I am pleased to be picked as an ambassador as we can now help to influence the primary school children and encourage them to join in at sports,” said Colette.

"We are confident that these two Young Ambassadors will be good role models for all our pupils as well as the primary schools that they work with,” said Blessed Trinity’s Claire Juriansz, Curriculum Leader for PE and Sport.
