With the 2012 Olympics in London, nothing more than a memory, the Rio 2016 games are just getting started. While we can hope that our Olympic games live up to the real ones, we know that the Cluster Olympics will be better than ever.
The ceremony began with the gymnasts and dancers warming up and the primary schools arriving. They all sat wearing their t-shirts and altogether presented a colourful array of pupils.
Soon enough Mr Billington began speaking and informed the pupils about the cluster games and the Olympic/ Queen Anne torch runners joined him.
A special guest Shirley-Anne Somerville (the MSP of Dunfermline) then spoke about how fortunate we are to belong to such a prestigious school. Then Townhill Primary School kindly graced us with a demonstration performance of a karate sequence.
Then the music began (an eclectic mix of bagpipe music and a pop song) and the gymnasts and dancers presented a well-organised dance routine.
After the dance routine, Mrs Grant and Mr Livingstone brought on a troop of drummers and they executed an excellent performance full of intriguing percussion instruments and Chinese drums.
