Team 5 Mini Olympics

Yvonne Toa —

Team 5 classes have been enjoying their topic on the Olympics and on Friday held a "mini Olympics."

After the countries marched round the field, the torch was run in followed by the reading of the Olympic Creed, Motto, Athlete's Oath and Judges Oath.  Miss Wheeler declared the Games open and we started with a "bang."

The countries got into the spirit of the games, playing well and showing true sportsmanship throughout.  It was great to be able to use the new turf.  At the Closing ceremony "awards" were given out and teams returned to classes to reflect on this venture.
