— The Guernsey Commonwealth Games Association commemorated the visit of the Queen’s Baton 2010 Delhi by unveiling Honours Boards, listing the names of all athletes who have represented the Bailiwick in the Commonwealth Games, at the Beau Sejour Leisure Centre here on Monday.
The function at the Beau Sejour Leisure Centre started after the public got an hour and a half with the baton. Guernsey Commonwealth Games Association Chairman Mr. Peter Sirett said “We are trying to get as many people as possible to see the baton.”
Guernsey’s Bailiff, Sir Geoffrey Rowland, addressed the gathering at the function (seen in photo). Sir Geoffrey had greeted the baton and baton crew at the Bailiff`s Chambers earlier in the day, officially welcoming the Queen’s Baton 2010 Delhi to the island.
On another blustery and rainy day, the baton visited many schools, the most interesting of which was a trip to St. Martin’s Primary School where students formed teams to represent different countries, produced posters and flags and took part in 30 minutes of diverse sporting activities.
At Forest Primary, students participated in an athletics baton relay and Guernsey Commonwealth Games Association offered prizes for the winning team. The baton visited kindergarten students in their classroom, ensuring all students had a chance to view it.
The baton was also present at an official Guernsey Commonwealth Games Association dinner with their eight sponsors.
