Students from St Patrick's Primary School donned the iconic Australian colors of green and gold to celebrate the Tokyo Olympics and take part in a range of educational and fun activities related to the games.
Everything from coloured hair, to bright tutu's, fancy accessories and even face paint was worn by students and teachers alike as they got into the spirit of the 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games.
According to principle Michael Morrell, the special day was organised for the students as the school community had all been very excited to watch Australian athletes go for gold.
"The reason that St Patrick's hosted a green and gold day for the students was to celebrate the Olympics and Australia's participation in them" Mr Morrell said.
"All of our students have the Olympics bug and we are very excited to watch Australian athletes compete."
Stage 1 teacher Victoria De Mattia said students had lots of fun participating in a variety of STEM based learning activities on the day.
"We are all getting very much into the spirit of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics at school" Miss De Mattia said.
"In class the students also took part in maths, reading and a range of other STEM activities."
Her colleague, Kaitlin Vardanega said her students were 'proud' to dress up and represent the Australian flag much like the Australian Olympics currently competing in Tokyo.
"Our students were all very proud to wear the green and gold and represent their favourite sports just like gold medal winning athletes Ariarne Titmus and Jessica Fox" Miss Vardanega said.
