The annual Mini Olympics is always a greatly anticipated event. We were yet again blessed with glorious weather as we all made our way to ‘Bates’ to meet the Elstree boys and a host of children from other schools and nurseries. It was a seamless afternoon, run fantastically with great effort and enthusiasm given by all the Elstree boys, instructing, looking after and on occasion rounding up a few of the smaller children.
There was a range of activities from hurdles, to javelin, rugby to relay races and ribbons. All of these encouraged the children to have a go at a range of sports whilst developing their sportsmanship. It was wonderful to witness so many smiling faces and children willing to have a go at whatever they were faced with. It is always a fun event for parents to come along and watch, bringing with them encouraging comments as their little ones leap in the air and throw with all their might. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the Elstree staff who put so much effort into organising this wonderful event, enjoyed by so many.
