Celebrating the Olympics and Paralympics 2012

Wednesday July 11th saw our last celebration lunch of the year. Sydney 2000 Olympics and Paralympics were memorable events for all Australians, and as part of our celebrations we had a themed Australian lunch.
And what a lunch it was - the ‘Aussie Burger’ or as it is more colloquially called ‘The Lot’.
This included:- a burger, fried egg, bacon, lettuce, onion, pineapple, beetroot, mayo and ketchup!!!
Very tricky to manoeuvre into the mouth, as some of our photos show. This was washed down with juice and the famous Anzac biscuit. (Apparently my mum used to make these post war, when ingredients were in short supply).
Lunch was accompanied by the dulcet tones of Rolf Harris singing about his ‘Didgeridoo’, as well as Kylie Minogue and other Australian greats. The Australian National Anthem was saluted by one young member of our school who actually saw the Olympic torch in both Sydney and Nottingham.

Meanwhile, outside, crowds gathered to watch the ‘Boing! Boing! Boing! Kangaroo Jump’ where Mr Kemp asked pupils:- ‘Do you wallaby a winner? A life size Kangaroo, complete with Joey, presided over the whole proceedings.
Pupils were challenged with a kangaroo jump, feet together and only 3 jumps, in order to beat the previous jumper.
The sun shone and we dreamt of Bondi Beach.
