As the games commence, we have been around to all the events to see how every young athletes is getting on. The year 7’s were showing off the tricks and skills. Check the posterous blog to see the images.

Today, Cameron and Hermione were lucky enough to go with Mr Atkins to the London Olympics site to meet Lord Sebastian Coe.
They were selected as one of only 15 schools across the country that was invited. Lord Coe faced interrogation on a range of questions ranging from access to tickets, the sustainability of the Olympics, the Paralympic games, and why netball is not an Olympics sport.
Cameron and Hermione were chosen to take part in radio interviews and the School Report live video stream, where they were privileged to closed the show off for this year.
Part of the Lord Coe interview is shown here http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-17390776 although our part of this interview was part of the live broadcast and not on the recorded website unfortunately. Still, what a great day!
Priory School was fortunate enough to be allowed to plant 3 geocaches (high tech treasure hunting) at the site of the Olympic road race – at Box Hill, Surrey. These geocaches contain special items that link to Priory School, the Olympic values and the local environment. We have an aim : for the trackables of the geocaches to travel as far as possible – and ideally to get as far as the next Olympics venue in Rio de Janeiro. You can try to find them for yourself on http://www.geocaching.com – good luck!!
