OVER 250 pupils and staff from King’s Ely Junior formed the shape and colours of Olympic Rings on the school playing field to celebrate the official opening of the London 2012 Olympic Games tonight (27).

To show their support for the Games – and former pupil Goldie Sayers, who is competing in the javelin – the school’s four houses got together in their house shirts to form one of the five Olympic Rings, with staff making up the black ring.

Deputy Head Andrew Marshall said: “This was a wonderful feel-good exercise, bringing pupils and staff together.

“The groundstaff took particular pride in marking out the rings and helping to make the grass look as good as it has ever done.”
