Olympic Opening Ceremony

Last Friday the whole school was involved in a special Olympic opening ceremony to celebrate the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Each class represented a different country and made flags and dressed up in the countries colours. Our Olympic ceremony included a parade of countries and athletes followed by formal proceedings before announcing the 2016 Rio games were open.
