Last Thursday, we had our Rangeview whole school mini Olympics. Each class chose a country to dress up and represent. We enjoyed our day which began with our Opening Ceremony – each class paraded in their country colours to their National Anthems. We had a performance by the school band. 4L(NZ) performed the Hakka and 4O(Greece) performed the Zorba Dance. The band also performed two songs ‘Tequila'(Latin) and ‘Red Earth Dances'(African).
After recess, we enjoyed our multi-aged group rotations where we took part in different activities such as fencing with newspaper, table tennis, hammer throwing, equestrian(with people!) and relay races. It was great to see everyone working as a team and getting involved in the activities.
The closing ceremony began with a song by the Junior Choir called ‘Sports Carnival Song’ followed by a combined Junior Choir and Senior Choir song ‘I Still Call Australia Home’. Senior Choir then performed ‘Eye of the Tiger’. To finish the ceremony, we then had the rock band perform ‘Smells like ‘TWEEN’ Spirit’. Well done to all the students that performed and assisted in the running of this fantastic day.
