The sun shone for Queen Margaret's 1st Olympic Games- the culmination of a week of hard work (and fun)!
All S1 and S2 pupils in QMA took part in a series of specially designed Olympic challenges.
Pupils were split up into twenty teams - representing one Olympic nation. They were competing against each other throughout the entire week.
The purpose of the week was to learn about the Olympics, it’s ethos & the countries represented. The Procession of Nations kick started the day's events, with each nation illustrating their specially designed flag and national costume.
After the official procession and torch lighting the sporting activities began. A full list of winners can be found on the QMA mini Olympic site.
Never to be outdone, the teaching staff also represented their Nation, displaying their 'athletic abilities' in the sack race, egg and spoon race and three legged race.
The points were tallied from a combination of academic, artistic and sporting tasks.
Japan won 'The Bid', however, there could only be one overall winner- Djibouti!
