Well done to the twelve lucky children from Years 3 and 4 who have been chosen to represent All Souls at the Tokyo 2020 conference taking place tomorrow.
This exciting event is to start preparing for the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Tokyo 2020. Children attending this conference will have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of cultural and sport workshops linked to Japan and the Olympic Games. Activities will include manga art; calligraphy, origami, ikebana, taiko drumming and martial arts. The children will create an action plan of sporting and cultural events that they would like to lead across the city. The children who attend the conference will also have the opportunity to train to be a Coventry Young Ambassador representing Coventry at major events.
The event will include a welcome speech from the Minister from the Embassy of Japan and Noel Thatcher MBE at 9.30am. They will have a live link to the Olympic Association in Tokyo and the event will also be live streamed so that you will be able to see some of activities taking place here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzHKnvyDEKspRdonugReayg/featured.
Just to remind you that all children should bring a packed lunch (preferably disposable), a bottle of water and wear their full All Souls PE kit. Children will depart school at 8.30am, so need to ensure prompt arrival in the morning, and will arrive back to school by 3pm ready for usual collection.
We can’t wait to hear all about it!
