The Queen's Baton Relay

On the 18th of May,2010, the baton(real one), visited Botany Downs Primary, one of the three schools to possess the baton.

That was the last day the baton was in New Zealand, but it was . . . AWESOME!!! Along with the baton was double Olympic gold medalist, Danyon Loader.He's quite a tall guy!

The baton this year was made in India, with all of the different types of sand in India.

The Baton Relay

About a week ago,Botany Downs Primary School took part in the baton relay. We were one of the three schools to take part in the baton relay.

Once Mr.T [our principal] told us that we were going to take part in the baton relay, we were extremely excited.

Finally the day came. Everyone was screaming like CRAZY. It was so loud I had an Earache for like 20 minutes!

A person from Howick Primary carried the baton to our school. Then we went in our hall. We sang some songs too.

By the way, if you want to know what baton is, it is a stick that carries letter from the queen of England. The baton was very interesting because it had lights that showed you which country you are in.


In our game against Whakaranga we lost 55 nil to them. We played ok but we could play better. Hopefully we will do better next time. Rugby's cool but its a lot harder than soccer. I like being in the first 15 the school team.
