Last Friday, the 24 children from years 1, 2 and 3 who received the highest amount of mini olympic points in the training, went to the Mini Olympic Final at The Grange! The children were competing against 5 other Christchurch schools!
When they arrived, The Grange sport leaders helped the children round various mini olympic challenges such as bean bag balancing, long jump and running through the agility ladder. Points were given to the children for every lap they achieved.
At the end of the afternoon, the points were totalled up and the children with the highest points received a medal from a paralympian! Tony Griffin won a gold medal in the Javelin and weight lifting in 1984 in New York and still holds one of his world records. He has cerebral palsy and a very inspirational man! Four children from our school were lucky enough to receive a medal from him!
