Athletics Day

Ready, set, go!! On Wednesday afternoon the whole school got ready for athletes. The Juniors started off the event on the 50m line. When they finished the Seniors were up. We all got up and lined up behind the 75m so we can race. When the girls bolted off it was the year seven boys' turn. Mrs Pederson shouted,  " Ready, set, Go!!"
When I heard, "Go" I bolted as fast as a cheetah. When I finished I came third for seventy five meters. When this event was done everyone got up to get ready for the one hundred meters. Later on it was the year seven boys' turn for one hundred meters. Once again Mrs Pederson shouted,  " Ready, set, Go!!" When I crossed the finish line I came second.

After we finished fitness we went inside our classroom but before we went in Mr Reid said, "Whoever is in the soccer team take a photo''. In my head I felt a little disappointed because I really wanted to go Inter-school soccer. It was my first time going to soccer.
