Kiri Te Kanawa Retirement Village London Olympics

We celebrated the Olympics by having our residents participate in various activities during the week leading up to the Olympic Games Opening Ceremony. The Opening Ceremony was celebrated with a special morning tea. Residents and staff got into the spirit of the event to wearing regalia in support of their chosen country or sport.

TV coverage was shown in the theatre 24/7 and was usually filled with keen residents watching their favourite sports and supporting the Kiwis.

At the conclusion of the Games, residents enjoyed a champagne afternoon tea with entertainment. The residents were treated by a visual masterpiece created by our Assistant Chef – a five ringed cake, representing the Olympic Rings.
