Silly Sports day

“ Come on, come on, we might be late” I said. There I was on the school courts with a bunch of girls hurrying towards the bottom field. I could see that everyone was there. My class was right next to our school playgrounds and Rooms 22, 19 and 20 were a bit far from us. It was Silly Sports day and I was really excited. We first started off with our own class.

Mrs Lagitupu had already organised a game called Ball Tiggy. There were different coloured teams. red, Blue, Yellow and Green. I was in yellow. Our aim was to try and get our opponents out by trying to get them out by tagging them with a ball. Our hands and our feet were always used to dive, dodge and to put up targets. It made me feel exhausted but I was okay at the end.

It was time to switch. Next up was Miss Tito. We were asked to line up while she showed us a few demonstrations before we started. The ball will go on the slingshot then you had to use your strength to try and aim for one of the hoops. Our class were really aiming for the pink hoop. Points were all we wanted so that we could beat the other classes. Unfortunately we didn’t get our results but I’m pretty sure that we won.

Keeping my balance is one of the biggest things I hate to do. But for Mr Harris’s game we had to. My partner was Mauina. Tying a knot on both of our legs were really hard and hurtful. We had to walk to a cone with a Spoon and tennis ball on our hand and also with a knot tied around our legs. Difficult was the word that was in my mind. I persevered a lot and hoped that my partner and I did well.

“ NO!”, it was our last game but luckily we had Mrs Nua. I was waiting to play her game because it look fun. We were divided into 4 groups and I was in group 4. In front of us was a bucket filled with water and a sponge and at the back of us was a bucket that had nothing in it. The first person had to dip the sponge into the bucket filled with water, then had to pass it on until it reached the last person. Last person will then squeeze it into the bucket with no water. The bucket with the most water wins. Group 1 had won both rounds and became the winner.

Sports day was finished but school wasn’t. It was lunch time already and I was ecstatic. Hope that we have it again.
