Andergrove State School, Queensland Australia were the 990th school to share their Commonwealth Story by registering their challenge with Game On Scotland. Judy Corbett shared with us how her prep class of 5 year olds are fascinated to know that whilst they were sleeping, folks here in Scotland were wide awake and athletes were competing in the myriad of sports involved in the games.
With a number of weeks to go until the end of their school term, Andergrove youngsters are engaged in a good natured battle to collect stickers in their own bid for Gold. To gain a sticker, youngsters have to overcome a number of challenges including a series of races and learning activities. Clyde has featured heavily in activities, especially in science activities where the children are learning about living things.
Andergrove were delighted to discover that they were 990…..now the race is on for the big 1,000 – watch this space!
Are you an Early Years Centre that remains open over the summer period? Have you shared your commonwealth story by posting a Game On Scotland Challenge? If so, you are just who we are looking for!
Tell us in no more than 100 words what sort of fun Clyde, the cheeky Glasgow 2014 mascot, could have if he came to stay at your centre for the summer.
Activities, sports, games, trips & all sorts of fun might be taking place,. If your centre is selected, we’ll send a mimi Clyde to stay with you for the summer. All we ask is that you record his visit in some way (writing, pictures, photographs, video, etc) and send this to us in August.
In return, we’ll publish some of the high jinks that he gets up to over the summer period on the Game On Scotland website. What’s more, you’ll be able to keep the mini Clyde as a special gift to remember the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
If you would like to participate, please send us an email including:
Your name, contact details and your 100 word description to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have not shared your Commonwealth story, you can do it easily (it will take less than 5 minutes) Register your Game On Challenge at www.gameonscotland.org
We can’t wait to hear what plans you have in place for Clyde!
