On the 12th of July Lauren Beard came into St Thomas’ to talk about the Olympic torch when she carried it through part of Grays . Some people were chosen to ask Lauren questions and others took part in the assembly. Lauren told us she felt ok on the bus but when it got closer to her turn she felt nervous. We watched a video on the day that Lauren carried the torch, and one to see the route where the torch was travelling. Lauren was lucky enough to keep her torch and her tracksuit. We were excited that Lauren was coming in to show us the torch and as a school we felt very proud of her.
