A PRIMARY six pupil at Inverkeilor Primary School, Erin Whamond, was delighted to receive three tickets to the Olympic Games in London this summer.

She proved that she embodies the values of the games, especially friendship, respect and determination both in her application to the school and through her daily conduct.

She said: “I am so lucky to have won the tickets to see the ladies’ basketball. It is a great opportunity and I can’t believe it! Thank you to the staff, judges and Pupil Council for choosing me.”

Erin received the tickets as part of the ‘Ticketshare’ scheme of London Get Set 2012. Ten other luck pupils and their families have been awarded tickets for the ladies’ football at Hampden Park in July.
