Olympic Torch Visit

We had a wonderful surprise this morning when Ann Costello, aunt of Liam Bannon(Fifth Class) contacted the school to say she would be able to bring the Olympic Torch to visit us!  Ann taught us a little about the history of the torch.  We found out that the torch we saw today has 3 sides because the Olympics has been held in London 3 times and that it has 8000 holes in it corresponding to the 8000 torch-bearers used in this year’s games.  Thanks to Liam and his Aunt for this very special treat!
