Mini Olympics at Saxton Stadium
On Monday 1 August, we entered 4 teams of Year 3/4 children into an inter-school Mini Olympics event, held at Saxton Stadium. The children were in teams representing some of the competing countries. Saint Paul's teams were: U.S.A., Indonesia, South Africa and Argentina. We had to march into the stadium just like the actual Olympic athletes. The events that were organized were great fun. They involved lots of fast running, ball skills and team-work. Some of our favourites were Weightlifting and Equestrian. Although we took part for the fun and friendship, it was a big surprise when the medals were presented in a ceremony at the end. Saint Paul's teams were placed 1st, 2nd and 3rd!
