Day 2

What an exciting day here in the village. Big screens are placed throughout broadcasting the olympic events all day and evening. As I was walking around this afetrnoon I saw Nancy Green being interviewed, some kids from sweden playing with the official mascots and folks from around the globe gathering in the main square.

    Mr. Weston,

    We are 6-2 from Ness Middle School and we have been learning all about the Olympics in our ELA class with Mrs. Findlay. Thank you for posting the pictures and information for us to see - it is neat having an inside view of the Olympics. Not sure if you'll have time to answer a couple of questions, but if you do, here they are:
    -What events have you seen?
    -What has been the most exciting thing you have done so far?
    Thanks again! Go CANADA!

    We are 6-3 from Ness Middle School and we also have Mrs. Findlay as a ELA teacher and are learning about the Olympics, too. We would like to know if it has been a fun adventure for you? We were also wondering if you were there when Alexandre Bilodeau won gold and how loud was the crowd? We think that this blog is a great idea!
    Thanks! Eh, O'Canada Go!

  5. Hello Ness Middle School!

    I have not been to any of the venues to watch an event as I am here as a volunteer at the Whistler Media Centre. The most exciting thing so far has been watching all the events on the huge video screens set up all over the Village, with folks from around the world. The Hockey game between Norway and Canada was great.

    I did watch Alexandre win gold but on TV with people in the media centre from Australia. I was excited but they were very quiet.
