The Junior Boys’ School Olympic Celebration Day began with an Opening Ceremony filled with much pride and enthusiasm for the work the boys had put into developing their own countries.
As well as each team doing a lap with their team flag and mascot, they carried a shrub, as a gesture mirroring the ‘Green’ environmental theme of this years’ Olympics in Rio.
This week the Prep boys planted the team shrubs with their Year 6 buddies in our own Olympic Garden.
It was lovely to see the patience with which the older boys helped the younger ones and engaged them in the task.
A huge thank-you to Gary and the maintenance team for organising the shrubs and pre-digging the holes for us.
