Coubertin: Good morning! And welcome to Our class play on the History of the Olympics — when nations compete against each other, in the most sporting manner.

(18 nations stand up with flags, cheering loudly)


No day before

So full of deep devotion

And in my heart

I feel a strong emotion!

Olympic fire wakes my desire

To join in the games of the world!

So far away the day's of

Pain and sorrow,

Enjoy the games,

There's a new tomorrow!

Let's share the story

Of fame and glory,

The party of friendship for all!


Refrain: Goin' for Olympic dreams,

Goin' for the gold,

 Goin' for the medals,

That I never thought I'd hold!

 Flyin' on the wings of freedom,

Reachin' for the sky,

The Olympic dreams will never die!


Coubertin: Of course, it wasn’t always like that. Let’s date back to 776 BC. There were only athletes from across Ancient Greece who competed.

Zeus: It my honour!

Sostratos: Five days!

Leonidas: Seven events.

Kallipateira: (scowling): And no women!

Coubertin: Ah! He good old days! When men were men, and women were women.

Kallipateira: I thought you were here to represent the modern Olympics.

Coubertin: Indeed I am. And you about to see just how many changes took place over the years.

Zeus: The Olympic Games have a very long history. I remember how it started.

Sostratos: During the first games that were held in Ancient Greece in 884 BC all the wars were stopped.

Leonidas: The ancient Greeks organised them every four years to honour the god Zeus.

Kallipateira: They took place for nearly 1,200 years, at Olympia, in Greece.

Sostratos: They included many different kinds of sport, among them running, boxing, racing chariots, jumping and wrestling.

Leonidas: All the cities in Greece sent their best athletes to the city of Olympia to compete in games.

Kallipateira: Those who were better, faster and more skilful were awarded prizes — olive wreathes.

Sostratos: Thousands of people from all parts of Greece came to see the games.


(All students are dancing "Sertaki")


Emperor: In 394 A.D. the Games were stopped by me, Roman em-peror, Theodosius, and the temple of Olympia was destroyed.

Coubertin: Fifteen hundred years later, in 1894, I, a Frenchman Baron, Pierre de Coubertin, addressed a circular to all the governing bodies of sport in which he pointed out the educational value of sport to modern people.

Sostratos: After fifteen centuries modern series of Games took place m Athens in 1896, on the site where ancient festivals had been held before

Leonidas: Modern Olympic Games continue the tradition started in the past.

Kallipateira: Every four years the sportsmen from all over the world gather together to compete and glorify their Motherland.

Coubertin: Time to meet our modern Olympics host nations! In order, please!


(The representatives of each nation stand up, step forward and introduce themselves.)

Every nation all around us

Singing forever being young,

Singing songs underneath that sun.

Let's rejoice in the beautiful game

And together at the end of the day.


When I get older,

They'll call me freedom

Just like a wavin' flag.

And then it goes back,

And then it goes back,

And then it goes back,

And then it goes.

In this crazy, crazy world,
You’re the diamonds, you're the pearls,
Let's make a new tomorrow, today.

Wake up, slow down,
Do nothing right now,
Breathe in,
Breathe out,
Did we forget how to live, to dream
And what it all means.

It's like we don't care,
Who's hot, who's not,
Who's got the right upside down
Tonight, tomorrow.
You're out of time
Up style, you are back in the line
A race to nowhere.

Come on boys, come on girls,
In this crazy, crazy world,
You're the diamonds, you're the pearls,
Let's make a new tomorrow.


Come on girls, come on boys,
It's your future, it's your choice,
And your weapon is your voice,
Let's make a new tomorrow, today.

Turn left, turn right,
Don't make up your mind.
Your way to fame is all in vain,
You get in the spot,
Then you run out of luck,
You're going nowhere,
We can change it all today.

Come on boys, come on girls,
In this crazy, crazy world,
You're the diamonds, you're the pearls,
Let's make a new tomorrow.

Come on girls, come on boys,
It's your future, it's your choice,
And your weapon is your voice,
Let's make a new tomorrow, today.

Come on girls, come on boys,
Let's make a new tomorrow
