Mississauga Marafun Marathon
Olivet School participated for the second time in the 2km Mississauga Marafun Marathon on Sunday. The students have been running during recess and gym class. All runners were required to run 40km before participating in the marathon, so that they would have ran 42km by the end of the race, just like a real marathon!
Many students, parents and even teachers ran in the marathon. Our Pricipal, Mr. Smith, managed to survive the race but was hobbling around on Monday morning. He never did catch up with the speedy grade 5 students though. Parents, students and past students joined in and afterwards and enjoyed a picnic in the beautiful May weather.
