What an incredible morning! Students at The Island Academy held their very own Olympics under the palapa at their school grounds. The first portion of the events was the presentation of the cultures - Australia, China, France, Ireland, Portugal and South Africa. Each colorful presentation got raves from the students and crowd gathered to witness the event.
At the end of the presentation, South Africa placed first and won 50 points towards their day's total. Their elaborate costumes and great presentation obviously won over the judges! But then, it was on to rally for the actual games! The kids spirits were high, and shouts of “Portugal! Ireland! South Africa! And Viva Le France!” could be heard through the air! Go Teams!
Looks and sounds like they had lots of fun!
