Last updated at 14:06, Wednesday, 27 June 2012
PUPILS from Walney have been taking part in their own Olympic torch relay celebrations after missing out on seeing the real thing.
The relay finished at North Walney Primary and Nursery School and featured a celebratory event with pupils from all of Walney’s primary schools, George Hastwell School and Walney School, with pupils carrying the torch round the island on Monday.
The schools had all chosen different countries to represent and gathered at North Walney Primary to parade the torch, Olympic rings and flags. They had also made cakes in the theme of the flag of the country they were representing.
North Walney Primary headteacher, Phil Webster, said: “We were disappointed that the Olympic torch wasn’t visiting us so we decided to have our own version.”
The event also featured dance routines and the children performing Sing, the commemorative Jubilee song written by Gary Barlow and Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber.
