A number of runners from Year 3T relayed their Olympic torch around the school and called in to the IRC – making this a fitting way to introduce our theme for Book Week and National Literacy day: “Champions Read”.
The online edition of the Guardian for 25 July has an animated history of the Olympic Games – so many years rolled into a 2:43 clip!
The IRC was very crowded before school today and cheers rang out for every basket as students watched the live basketball match between Australia and the United States. Unfortunately the bell rang just into the second half and students had to go to class! I am sure they will be back at lunch time to see the replays.
