Olympic Torch


Twycross House and the Hollies were lucky enough to have a visit from an official Olympic Torch last term. Simon Lewis, an ex-pupil, had been selected and given the honour of carrying the torch in his home town of Gloucester in May. He brought his family along to school on what was supposed to be Sports Day at Twycross House so we could have an authentic opening ceremony in this Olympic year. Unfortunately Sports Day was a complete wash out, but he was happy to show the torch around school and let all the pupils see it first-hand. He visited the Hollies and proudly showed the torch to all the classes, happily answering any questions the children had. Hopefully seeing the torch will inspire some of the pupils to become Olympians in the future. Many thanks must go to Simon for giving up his time and visiting us.
