Panyaden School’s Olympic Games Mascots
Mascots are the biggest cheerleaders for the Olympic Games. They entertain fans and promote the Games’ spirit of sportsmanship and participation over winning. They also represent the history and culture of the host country.
If Thailand were to host the Olympic Games, what would the mascot look like? This was the question Panyaden’s Prathom teacher, Kru Goy, posed to her students when it was decided that our school would organize our mini version of the London Olympics in Chiang Mai. Here are the results designed by 6 students who presented them at our Opening Ceremony yesterday. These pupils created their mascots that imaginatively integrate what they have learnt about the Olympics and its symbols with elements of Thai culture, history and life.
