“The students will be participating in a different Olympic event each day for the next seven school days, “ explained Cawston Primary Principal Linda Thiel. “The event will depend on what is being staged at the Olympics on a particular day.” Thiel said the students would be performing the event during their phys ed class.

This is Cawston Primary’s second Olympics.
