THE legacy of the Linlithgow Olympic Games 2012 will live on after the sporting extravaganza on Friday, May 9.

Last week over 400 sapling trees from the Woodland Trust were given to every nursery school child in the Linlithgow Sports Cluster area from Westfield to Winchburgh to include them in the ambitious project.

Games coordinator Lesley Malone said: “The challenge is to give every nursery child the opportunity to plant their very own tree, to water occasionally and watch it slowly grow as they too will slowly grow.”

The Linlithgow Olympic torch blazed its way from Springfield Primary, representing Italy, with Mrs Glen and her P5 class walking to St Joseph’s Primary, representing Australia (pictured). Lesley added: “St Joseph’s were celebrating Australian Day, and many children brought kuala bears and kangaroos to school, while others wore khaki hats with corks!”
