STAFF at a Sheffield school are on the hunt for a bright spark who could be chosen to carry the Olympic torch as it passes through South Yorkshire.
High Storrs School has been asked to select a pupil who will be considered for the prestigious task by the torch relay organisers.
The selection process has now started – but only youngsters who are 12 this summer can qualify.
The teacher in charge, Julia Mackenzie, said the successful candidate would represent the Olympic values of ‘friendship, excellence and respect’.
“Carrying the Olympic torch will be such an honour for the young person selected. High Storrs School is delighted to be associated with such an important event during the Olympic Games,” she added.
