On Wednesday 30th May the Olympic Torch passed through
and all of our school, (Greenfields) went to watch it. The atmosphere was amazing with almost 40,000 people around the town. We waited for about an hour for this exciting moment. Before the torch came past, there were lots of police, Olympic Vehicles and a few other runners in front. There was a girl named Chloe who ran with the Torch after the coaches. This experience was a once in a life time chance for some of the pupils in Greenfields. Shrewsbury
Many children have said they enjoyed this trip and would love to see it again, (especially when they were giving out free flags and coke). Our school was so close to being on TV but missed, anyway, we all enjoyed it and so did the teachers!
