The Class 5 Greek Olympics

After weeks of practicing our Class 5 excelled themselves at the Greek Olympics held in Byron Bay amongst 100s of other class 5 students from Steiner schools from the north coast region.

The students complete the athletic challenges in olympic games the way the Greeks completed them when the Olympic games first began 1000s of years ago.  For example they complete long jump from a stationary position, wrestling, javelin, discuss and marathons as if they are delivering a message.

Our Class 5 students compete in these games every year and the event forms part of their Greek Main Lesson where the students will be immersed in mythologies, music, history, form drawing and the Greek way of life.
