The first picture shows seated discus thrower Kieran Tscherniawsky at Kirkby la Thorpe Primary School.

Kieran, who used attended the school and would be representing Great Britain at the London 2012 Paralympics, presented the school with a plaque to commemorate its place in the Get Set network.

The Get Set award was presented to schools which showed their commitment to the Olympic and Paralympic values. They also needed to be seen to use the London 2012 Games to inspire others to get involved in values-based projects and activities.
