KGV TORCH RELAY IGNITES OLYMPIC SPIRIT
Thousands flocked to KGV on Friday 1st June 2012 to witness the start of the Southport leg of the Olympic Torch Relay. Governors, staff and students joined with invited schools and local community groups to watch the torch make its journey from the college onto Scarisbrick New Road as Stewart Reynolds, Head Gardener at the Botanic Gardens, ran the first part of the journey.
The relay was the culmination of a morning event which saw the crowds being entertained by KGV group ‘Don’t Anger Dave’ as well as enjoying a cupcake reception hosted by the college. Jan Regan, Assistant Principal said “It has been a wonderful opportunity for KGV: the response has been overwhelming, we feel so proud that KGV has been a part of the celebrations!”
