Another Mini Olympic But Better
Yesterday was a fantastic day as the whole school had a mini Olympics. Looking around you could see children dressed up in colours representing 16 countries. I was in the beautiful country of Sweden. Our team leader was Samson and I was the co-leader. We played games that were simple such as Handball, Foursquare, Basketball etc. There were also other sports that were really really different. For example Sitting Down Volley. This is how the day started.
It was a sunny day which was a bonus. We were all sitting down waiting for something to happen when all of a sudden Ms Va'afusuaga started to speak. She explained the rules for today, how to earn points and a lot more. After that Ms V sent the juniors to their first activity and left us seniors to find our own way. I didn’t think that was a good idea especially for Sweden. We tried to find our first activity. Me and Samson searched the paper and eventually found our way.
My favourite activity for the day was definitely foursquare against Romania. It was just like handball but with a partner. My partner was Samson and we were the ultimate team. Hitting the ball was a piece of cake but the only challenging thing was when people would skim the ball. I don’t know about Samson but I have gotten better in foursquare. Just to let you know we WON!!!
We played more games but foursquare was my favourite. I really like our Mini Olympic and wish to have another. Thanks to Ms Va'afusuaga, Mr J, all the teachers and the prefects for making this day happen. It was definitely a day to remember.
