  1. Hi Calvin. I am a teacher at Our Lady Star of the Sea School in Howick and I was trying to find a template for my children to make a model of the chariot that would have been used in the Ancient Olympic games and I stumbled on your page. Thank you so much for the link to the You tube clip. I am going to show it to my children - a Year 5/6 class. We are Room 20. I hope you are having a great time learning about the Olympics.
