Athletics

On a sunny, fun cheering day SPX had Athletics. We had a colourful shades that our house teams stayed under so the sun wouldn't burn our skin. When Room 3 got changed we put on our colourful T-Shirts and our sun cream and our house colour and age on our hand so that people knew that we were in that group.


The day began, we lined up outside and got ready to go to our house team. We went to the field where our Shade colour was and sat down and we started off with prayer, so it could be a lovely time at our Athletics. The ten year olds had to go to Mrs Deeney, she was doing the bean bag shuttle. We had to line up in our teams, it was only five of us in Geckos but we were fast and quick. We got our bags and we ran to the first cone the Mrs Denney said “Go!” and Geckos were cheering for me when I was picking up the bean bags one at a time, then I put it inside the bag and moved on to the next one and I came 2nd because Jane is very fast at running. We then moved on to the next person in our group and when we finished we went to the High jump with Mr Coakley.


We lined up in one line to start running and jumping, I was scared when I was running. I couldn’t make it over the bar because the ten year olds and the parents were watching and they made me get goose-bumps and nervous feeling. Mr Coakley said “Come on, do your best” and I ran and ran and jumped but it was in the wrong time so I hit the pole and I fell over so I thought I won’t be in the finals because I am not going make it. We had another turn so Mr Coakley said he wouldn’t test it, he would give us a chance. Some of the students made it and some didn’t but I was amazed that Catherine could make it to the top three Champions, they had a higher jump. Catherine from Kiwis and Frank from Tuis and also Misiotei from Mighty Geckos were the top three.

Lot’s more happened during the day and I was really tired at the end of it all.
