London Olympics 2012

Boa Sorte! Good Luck! Boa Sorte! Good Luck!

Our Special 'Olympian' Visitors

On the 3rd July, we were very excited to receive a visit from members of the Brazilian 2012 Equestrian Team. Whilst our Brazilian pupils have been working hard at school, their parents and other members of the team have been training hard. The team met with classes to talk about their training and to answer questions. They also took part in a whole school assembly. They asked the whole school to sign a numnah (saddle cloth) that they will use during the Olympic events. They also signed a cloth for us to keep in school.

We all wish you the very best at the Olympics!

The Get Set Network

The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) awarded Barnabas Oley Church of England Primary School a plaque and certificate to acknowledge our involvement in the London 2012 education programme. We are now part of an active London 2012 community of schools and colleges across the UK– the Get Set network - and we will receive access to exclusive competitions and 2012 Games related opportunities over the coming years.

Sebastian Coe, chairman of LOCOG, said: “When London won the right to host the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games, we made a clear promise to use the power of the 2012 Games to inspire young people."

“I am proud to welcome Barnabas Oley Primary School in to the Get Set network for their exciting work around the Olympic Values of friendship, excellence and respect and the Paralympic Values of inspiration, courage, determination and equality.”
