Event - Olympian Zac Purchase Visits Us

2 October 2008

We had a visit from Zac Purchase - a rowing gold medallist at the Beijing Olympic Games. He talked to us about all the hard work he had done training for the Olympics. It was very exciting and we all got to try on his Gold Medal, and some of us even got to try on his Olympic jacket.

Quotes from the children:

"It was very exciting to meet someone so famous!".
"We got to hold his Gold Medal that he had won".
"He told us about his training he'd done".
"We got to wear his Olympic jacket".
