Olympic Relay

On Friday 13th July 2012 every child in the school (from Nursery to Year 6) took part in a special event to mark the coming of the Olympic Games to London. A real Olympic torch, along with a huge variety of home made torches and standard torches were carried around a dedicated route in Barnes. The nursery children passed a torch from one end of the Key Stage 1 playground to another. Years 1 and 2 ran around Vine Park with their torches. Years 3 and 4 ran around the Barnes Pond area, whist Year 5 ran around part of Barnes Common and along Barnes High Street. Finally, Year 6 took to the river, picking up the challenge on Lonsdale Road and running along the River Thames towpath. The photographs below are a record of this special event.
