The Queen's Baton visits Botany Downs School

Today there was great excitement at our school when the Commonwealth Games baton arrived from Howick Primary school as part of the relay around the commonwealth countries. We made flags to wave to welcome our visitors and the baton. We thought the baton looked really beautiful with the red, white and blue colours shining. We learnt that the Queen had written a message and it was inside the baton. The message will be read out at the commonwealth Games in India, in October. Some of our Year 5 and 6 children ran in the relay to take the baton to another school.
