Colegrave Primary School is located in Stratford, just outside of the Olympic Park. 30 of their pupils were selected to take part in the 'NHS and Great Ormond St' segment of the Olympic Games Opening Ceremony - and one pupil, Max, had a starring role. It's fair to say that nerves were present as they left for the Ceremony...
.... But they can't waste time worrying, as they are quickly inside the Olympic Park. The Stadium looms large and poses an intimidating reminder of the performance they will help put on in a few hours' time.
Despite that, the excitement is bubbling through the party - helped, perhaps, by the snazzy t-shirts given to ceremony performers.
There's plenty to do before the big moment, and the pupils join the hordes of prospective performers in the dressing-room - and get to work with the hairspray. Suddenly, it's time to go, and the pyjama-clad youngsters are led into the Olympic Stadium itself.
The Colegrave students join up with the grown-up nurses and perch on the hospital beds. On stage, the beds will be pushed together to form a mosaic of sleeping children, and the blankets will light up to fill the arena with tiny squares of glowing warmth.
Meanwhile, Colegrave pupil Max prepares for his big moment. He has a special role in the limelight, and gets a hug to calm his nerves. He then piles into a red Mini, and gets driven away into the bowl of the Stadium.
Max gets out of the mini as part of a segment called 'Frankie and June say thanks Tim'. Max is visible in blue, closest to the car, and continues to play his Nintendo DS as he walks into the 'house'.

The next day, some of the children appeared on BBC World News - an incredible 24 hours for them! Congratulations to everyone involved from Colegrave - you did a great job.
