There is a home tennis match this evening (4pm) for U13 boys and girls teams.
Terrington Hall welcomed Olympic torch bearer Richard Baldwin to school assembly where he showed his Olympic torch to the pupils and talked to them about his experiences.
Nominated as a torch bearer by his grandsons for his wide-ranging work in voluntary and charity organisations, he ran with the torch in York from the bottom of The Shambles through Coppergate to the bottom of Skeldergate, over double the distance he had expected to be running! He said the turnout was phenomenal with 50,000 people within the city of York and a further 25,000 people assemble on the Knavesmire.
Mr Baldwin explained to the pupils that the reason for the torch's triangular shape is in recognition of the three occasions that the Olympic Games have been hosted by Great Britain – 1908, 1948 and 2012 – and that the 8,000 holes in the body of the torch are for the 8,000 runners involved in the torch relay.
At the end of assembly the Junior School pupils were given the opportunity to hold the torch themselves.
