Activity 2 Day 6: Entertaining the Crowd

Activity 2: The opening ceremonies for every Olympic Games must include formal speeches, a parade of athletes, songs and dances that showcase the culture of the host country. Follow this link to watch the highlights of opening ceremonies for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, England.
In the opening ceremony for the London Olympics there were a number of famous English people including the Queen, the Spice Girls, David Bowie, U2, the Rolling Stones and Paul McCartney. Imagine that we were going to host the Olympics here in New Zealand in 2024 and you were invited to be on the committee that decides who is invited to participate in the opening ceremonies. As a member of the group you must choose one of the following people to be in the opening ceremony: Richie McCaw (rugby player), Lorde (singer), Kane Williamson (cricket player), Maria Tutaia (netball player), John Key (prime minister of New Zealand) or Shaun Johnson (league player). On your blog, tell us who you think is the best person to choose and explain why you think that they are the best choice!

I would choose Maria Tutaia. I would choose her because since Netball is not one of the Olympic sports, maybe it would be a good idea to have the best Netball player, from the best Netball Team, to be in the ceremony.

  1. What a good idea, Rosrine. I think that it would be a very nice touch to include an athlete from one of our most prestigious New Zealand-based sports in the opening ceremonies. I really admire Maria Tutaia. I think that she is a very special woman and I think that she would be a great person to represent New Zealand on the world stage. Good choice!

    Keep up the great work! You are doing so well. I can't believe that you have already posted so many activity blogs for the Winter Learning Journey programme. It's incredible :)

    Cheers, Rachel
