Many of the year 5 and 6 students waited on the corner of Clyde Road today to catch a glimpse of some of New Zealand’s best sports people as they were driven past on double decker buses. The students performed an arousing, impromptu haka as the 2012 Olympic Games medalists went by. I’m not sure who was more thrilled; the children, at seeing the Olympians or the medalists seeing the children perform.
Our focus this fortnight is on dream making and these special people have worked hard all their lives and dedicated themselves to their sports in order to make their dreams come true. Perhaps, some day you too can be up on those double decker buses.
