When: Day 2, Monday 20 July, 9:00am-11:00am
The Opening Ceremonies of the 2020 International History Olympiad will take place on the morning of Day 2, the first full day on the ship. All participants in the Olympiad, including family members and coaches are encouraged to attend (participating students are required to do so). Like the Closing Ceremonies, the Opening Ceremonies will take place in the Theatre on board the ship. The Opening Ceremonies will feature the Parade of Players, general information on the week, and the first medals ceremonies for the Symposium and the Caribbean History Exam, which will have concluded by then. After the Opening Ceremonies conclude, students (and competing parents and family members) will remain in the Theatre to take the remaining 3/4 of the Battery Exam.
