Plymouth College’s Olympians have come back to school to a hero’s welcome.
Ruta Meilutyte, Tom Daley, Jade Howard and Jamila Lunkuse received a standing ovation from fellow pupils at the start of term assembly.
The four Olympian’s returned to find the school front doors pained gold to honour Ruta’s inspirational win and congratulations banners hanging around the school site.
The celebrations for the Olympians culminate this evening in a city-wide civic parade involving all Plymouth athletes who competed in the London Olympic and Paralympic Games. The open-topped bus tour will start at Plymouth College before finishing in the city centre in front of an anticipated crowd of thousands.
