Olympic fever hits the Middle School Libraries!

In celebration of the upcoming Rio 2016 Games both Middle School Libraries have been running a series of Olympic themed activities in the past few weeks. The first week of Term 3 saw the Centenary Library students harnessing their creative skills to make a olive wreath for their heads.  These came in all shapes and colours and looked fantastic when finished.  The Middle School boys had the opportunity to make their very own Olympic Torch complete with flames which proved to be a very popular activity.  The activity was made complete with a session of slow motion running with the finished products which was a lot of fun.   Years 5 and 6 boys were also treated to a screening of Rio over a number of lunchtimes.

The final event was making Olympic Torch Cupcake Cones where boys assembled cake, ice-cream cones, icing and roll ups to make edible torches. This was an extremely popular activity with boys wishing to make more than one. For some boys it was their first experience of piping icing which was both fun and messy!  With the Games beginning on the weekend, the boys are now enjoying watching the Games in their break times. Go Australia!!
