Everyone was a medallist at the annual Surrey Elementary Orange Games today.
More than 320 Surrey elementary students - the most ever - participated in the popular district event, which showcases the athleticism of elementary students with physical disabilities and other special needs who cannot easily participate in regular school PE classes or sports.
Students are given special T-shirts identifying them as athletes and are welcomed with thunderous applause into the gymnasium in an Olympic-style opening ceremony. Each student is also awarded a medal for his or her participation.
Organizing teacher Jim McMurtry says the emphasis of the Games, which are held at Panorama Ridge Secondary, is on fairness, competition and inclusion, and a whole lot of fun.
In addition to competing various sports ranging from hockey and basketball to track, students were treated to a presentation of Alice in Wonderland by Panorama Ridge Secondary's theatre students.
