Olympic & Paralympic Competition

7th May 2012

Top Prize: 3 tickets for the Olympic Football match at Wembley on 31st July 2012. 

Other Prizes Include: The mascots we are using for our Olympic display, Team GB mini footballs, Team GB wrist bands and Team GB Rubber Duck! (See photograph above). Every entrant will receive a certificate.

What You Have To Do: You can produce anything inspired by the Olympic & Paralympic values or heros. 

This could include: A painting, photograph, magazine article interview (video or audio), poster, sculpture, story, poem etc.

Olympic Values: friendship, respect, excellence 

Paralympic Values: 
determination, courage, equality, inspiration.

Olympic or Paralympic Heroes: 
Past or present. British or International.

When: Bring in after half term. Year 6 the following week (because of your Isle of Wight residential trip).

Display: All entries will be on display during the Summer Fair on 7th July.

Return of Entries: You will be able to take back your entry later in the term. Some will be sent home soon after the Summer Fair. Others will be left on display until the end of term.


You can enter a maximum of two items, one per heading (i.e one ‘Hero’ and one ‘Values’).
Every child has to enter at least once.

You can use something you are doing for homework or in your school work or you can do your own thing.

It must be your own work, though you can get advice and suggestions and little bit of help where safety is involved (cutting things with a knife etc).

Judging: The competition will be judged by our school staff through secret voting. Once we have a winner for each of the two categories we will hold a second secret vote. In the event of a tied vote we will draw lots for the final winner. Other prizes will be chosen by those finishing in second and third places. Our decision is final (no arguing!). The purpose of the competition is to inspire the children to think about the Olympic values and we hope they will enjoy the competition rather than entering purely to win one of the prizes.

Further information about prizes: The three tickets will all be given to one child as they will obviously need to go with at least one adult. Who you decide to use the other ticket for is up to you (sibling / friend / second parent or family member). You cannot sell the tickets on. In the event that the winning entry cannot attend the event we will ask them to swap prizes with the runner up etc.
