Athletics day

                                                                  Athletics day 

On Friday last week it was Athletics day and it turned out to be the best day ever because every class in St Patrick's took part. The school houses are Kauri, Rata. Rimu and Totora. I am in kauri and my friends were in the other houses except for one. His name is Alex. He was in my team and he is so fast I can't even catch my breath behind  him.

All the houses were sitting on the mats that were on the grass. After the 6,7,8,9 year olds had their turn, it was the ten years old turn and I am ten. It was the ten year old girls first and so my twin sister nearly went off without hearing the gun. Once the gun shot, all girls ran as fast as they could go. My sister came fourth.

Next it was the ten year old boys turn. I was shocked because I hadn't even practiced. When the Gun shot in the sky I ran as fast as I could go, and I also came fourth. In  the last 2 races my sister and I kept on coming fourth but on the third race my sister and I came in third place. I was so happy because I wanted to be in 1,2 or 3 place.

Then the year 5,6,7 and 8 were doing an activity. It was shotput. Totora won then kauri came second and Rimu came third and Rata came fourth.

When the bell rang, it was lunchtime. Then we had a little play time. After that the bell rang and it was tug-a-war time. Each house chose 8 people and I was one of them. We were the first team, and we were versing Rata. The principal (Mrs Bullot) blew the whistle and then both teams pulled as hard as they could. We beat Rata, then it was Rimu shouted with excitement. Then it was Rimu vs Totora. Rimu looked worried and Totara looked like they had practiced. Totara won and Rimu lost, so it was now Totara against Kauri. Gulp!

Totara got the rope and so did Kauri. Once the whistle blew, we pulled but we lost. Finally, at the end of the day, Ms Bullot announced teh winning house. It was Rimu. We were all very tired when we went home but we had a great time.
