Today we made Olympic torches with the help of Mrs Bushill. We learned that the colours - yellow, blue and green are the colours of Brazil. The wavy shapes represent the sky, the mountains, the sea, and the ground. The triangular shape is a reminder of the Olympic values - excellence, friendship and respect. The torch is about 63 cms tall and is made of recycled aluminium. Mrs Dijkstra thought it was very special that the torch held so much meaning.
