Many of our classes are getting behind our Australian athletes as they compete for gold at the Tokyo Olympics. Some students are researching about some of the athletes, others have been finding more out about Japan and Tokyo and on Tuesday, many dressed in the Australian colours of green and gold to show support for the athletes and in particular Aran Zalewski who is the captain of the men’s hockey team, the Kookaburras, and also an ex-student of St Thomas More.
