Day 4 The Olympic Games

It is now exactly 2pm and our Olympic Games has come to an end. We’ve been blessed with amazing weather and Hallenskolan has been extremely welcoming hosts.

For the Olympics we were divided into 16 teams, with our children representing Team GB, USA, Sweden and Germany. The children took part in a number of events including a tug of war, relays, frisbee, a blindfold challenge, a penalty shootout and a team long jump. Bosvigo looked tired but enjoyed the competition, especially the hot dogs and flapjacks!

After the Olympics we were given a tour of the school and couldn’t quite believe how much space the children have here, as well as the incredible DT resources, including bench drills, jigsaws and sanders. Mr Wallis was particularly impressed!

We are now resting before venturing into Gothenburg for some sight seeing, ice cream sampling and souvenir shopping. We are hoping to visit a Swedish restaurant for tea (although most of the restaurants are Chinese, Japanese or Indian) and then visit the local lake on our way home.

Hey dor!
