England 20 April: London
Today the European Relay resumed, visiting five schools in the London Borough of Lambeth.
Our first port of call was Herbert Morrisson Primary where we were greeted by poems written and recited by a selection of students. Several poems on the theme of friendship and harmony were displayed in the assembly hall.
From there we ran to King's Avenue Primary where students tried to guess the nationality of each runner. The runner gave clues and spoke a few words in their native tongue. For example Arno spoke a few words in Finnish and then told the children that he came from the land of Nokia and the place that Santa Claus comes from.
After a run across the playground we made our way across Brixton to Loughborough Primary. There we were greeted by a delightful song accompanied by guitar. The children then formed a large circle in the playground and everybody had a chance to hold the torch as it was passed from student to student.
Then, retracing our steps, we made our way to Glenbrook Primary where we were welcomed with an almighty cheer. Students watched a DVD of the European Harmony Run making its way from Portugal through Spain, France, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England.
Our final visit was to Fernstanton Primary where we attempted to teach the children the newly composed World Harmony Run song. Here we discovered the most inquisitive participants, with children wanting to know every last detail of our experiences on the Run. Children had the opportunity to run with the torch and from what we saw we wouldn't be surprised if Fernstanton Primary School produces a world-class athlete.
To sum up, it was a splendid sunny day. The children of Lambeth renewed our enthusiasm for this inspired project and we promise to carry their hopes and aspirations with us as we continue on around Europe and throughout the World.
