Students at St Andrew’s Grammar in Western Australia enjoy Olympic Day

·

St Andrew’s Grammar students took part in an Olympic Day on Thursday, June 15, in Western Australia.

The celebration started on the primary school oval rings with students and teachers forming the five Olympic rings.

Students from Kindergarten to Year 6 then participated in an opening ceremony, where the Olympic torch was lit.

Year 6 student leaders then spoke to the school about the meaning of Olympic Day.

A special speech followed from the day’s guest Giona Ryan, who represented Australia in hockey at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Ryan shared memories from her high school years, when she represented her nation at an Olympic level, including both the struggles and achievements of being a professional athlete.

Students competed in cross-country races, which were split into boys’ and girls’ events, for each year level.

Demeter was the winning house on the day, while the top three winners were recognised at an award ceremony. Students from Years 3 to 6 were presented with a gold, silver or bronze medallion, and a laurel wreath was given to the winner.
