What an athlete!
The thngs that we get up to! At school this term we've been learning about healthy living and a highlight was that we had Dave Culbert come to visit and speak to the Juniors. Dave competed in the olympic and commonwealth games for Australia in the 80's and 90's in long jump. The look on the kids faces when he explained that he used to jump 8 metres was exceptional! We measured it with the tape and it was VERY far!
Here I am, wearing his medals and carrying the 2000 Sydney Olympic torch that he carried in the relay. Pretty cool I think!
Looking forward to holidays in few days time and some relaxation. We have 3-way conferences tomorrow with the kids. Year 1 and 2s leading their own interview, sharing their achievements and goals for the new term. They've done an amazing job!
