WET weather may have damped their mini Olympics but it didn’t dampen the spir­its of the stu­dents at Glen­den­ning Pub­lic School.

Stu­dents dressed up in the tra­di­tional dress of their own cul­tures and pa­raded around the school to pro­mote the spirit of the Olympics.

Rain forced the can­cel­la­tion of many of the out­door Olympic events, but par­ents were still able to en­joy in­door per­for­mances by the stu­dents.

Teacher Poonam Suri said the day was a suc­cess.

“It was a shame we had to can­cel the Olym­pa­thon, but we did have par­ents visit class­rooms and watch the per­for­mances in the hall,” Mrs Suri said.

She said ev­ery cul­ture was rep­re­sented.

“We have a very mul­ti­cul­tural school here; it was a great day. The par­ents ab­so­lutely loved it,” she said.
