Towards the end of the year we had a visitor in school and got to get my hands on the Olympic Torch! This is a once in a lifetime experience and everyone was really excited!
To commemorate our school did a lap of the school with all children holding hands and passing the torch around aiming to have as many people touch it as possible!
The torch was brought in by Samantha Grundy, one of the torch-bearers in Wakefield nominated for her charity work. Below is a little description from the official torch site.
"Sam has a son Daniel with Cerebral Palsy and Downes Syndrome age 10 - when he was 3 she started a charity called SNAPS (Special Needs & Parent Support) in Leeds - this went from strength to strength with her raising all the funds to run various projects, swimming lessons for children with special needs - hydrotherapy, dance classes, summer schools, speech & language workshops - Snaps now provides services to over 200 children with special needs!"
Below is some of the pictures of me I have instagrammed :)
