Parade of Flags – Yorkshire Academy Olympics
Friday 15th April 2016
In true Olympic spirit, we will start the Olympics by holding a parade to celebrate our school’s diverse international community. All YA students, from MDO to 5th grade, including their families, will walk in this parade.
Our Yorkshire families come from a mix of different countries. We would like to celebrate all of them!
According to the Olympic Tradition, the delegations in the parade will be in alphabetical order, except for Greece, which leads the parade, and the host country, Brazil, that brings up the rear. YA families will march under their national flags and join in the fun by wearing their nation’s colors, spirit, and/or costume.
The International food court is a great way to experience cuisine from many continents.
We are so looking forward to seeing how many countries will be represented this year!
