Gala day arrives early as nurseries stage mini-Olympics
NURSERY schools staged their own mini-Olympics in Galashiels last week.
More than 200 children took part in the event at Langlee Primary School on Wednesday, June 20. They designed their own Olympic torch especially for the occasion.
And it was carried onto the school's playing field by real-life torch bearer Amy Bryson, from Galashiels.
The Asda supermarket worker, who carried the real flame through Duns on Thursday, wore her special London 2012 tracksuit at the event for the first time.
Other guests included Braw Lad Ryan Mania and Braw Lass Nicola Mackay and local Councillor Bill White.
Regular readers will be aware the school's Olympic torch has been touring local nuseries and playgroups ahead of the day of games at Langlee.
Each school also designed their own Olympic banner for the opening ceremony. And Langlee Primary School were crowned winners of the art competition.
