With the Olympic Games of 2012 due to be held in London, St Augustine’s has launched an initiative to utilise this wonderful opportunity to motivate our students into enjoying athletics.
Mrs Trotter, and the rest of the of the PE department in Mrs Fox and Mr Symons, have worked tirelessly to stage a variety of Olympic house events and challenges. Alongside competitive games where houses attempt to scale the medal tables, there is also an ongoing Olympic ring challenge. Click here to see more.
A prayer in preparation for the 2012 Games
Giver of joy and source of all strength,
we pray for those
who prepare for the London Olympic and Paralympic games.
For the competitors training for the Games and their loved ones,
For the many thousands who will support them,
For the Churches and others who are organising special events
and who will welcome many people from many nations.
In a world where many are rejected and abused,
we pray for a spirit of tolerance and acceptance, of humility and respect
and for the health and safety of all.
May we at the last be led towards the love of Christ
who is more than gold, today and forever. Amen
