Celebrating the Olympic Flame

Celebrating the Olympic Flame

Pupils, staff and parents all gathered at CCJS on the lawn outside Thirlestaine Long Gallery yesterday to watch the Olympic Flame make its way down the Bath Road on its journey to the Cheltenham Racecourse.

The atmosphere was electric, with everyone making the most of the glorious weather to enjoy picnics, a hog roast and lots of ice cream. The lawn was a festival of red, white and blue, with the themed Olympic Bunting setting it all off perfectly. From babies through to grandparents, everyone joined in the celebrations, with Thomas Trilby the Entertainer even making an appearance to impress the children with his magic tricks. 

Thanks to everyone who came and who helped celebrate this once in a lifetime occasion!
