Yesterday, we had a phenomenal day with every student in Saint Pius. We had a school Cross Country and we had to go into our team from last year. There were four different teams and they were called Geckos, Keas, Tuis and also Kiwis and the group that I am in was the Kiwis. Firstly, Mrs Tui taught us the rules and how you can get points for your team. The rules were if you instruct your group and sitting them down, be quiet, listening to what is being said, follow instructions, cheer for the teams, and also who would have the best chant. Although she said that whoever in their Year comes 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or 5th will get points for their team. The 1st place would be 100 points, 2nd place 80 points, 3rd place 60 points, 4th place 40 points and 5th place would be 10 points. Each and every student attended and was interested about this so they were really taking this serious. Following on, the Year 3 and 4 ran first and the Year 7 and 8 were next. I was so nervous about it but also excited at the same time. The Year 3 and 4 went and Mr Slade announced that it’s time for the Year 7 and 8. All the Year 7 and 8’s stood on the start line getting ready to run. When we heard the noise to start we all ran as fast as we could but some didn’t. When I got half way where we were running I was tired so I started doing power walk. It was so demanding that I could hardly breathe or walk. The Year 7 & 8’s had to do two rounds and a half and I felt like I was not going to make it but I did! Then on my last round I went back and I found out that I came 4th! I was very proud of myself and was happy. Next, each team did there chant and my team went first. We did a really great job and each and every person liked it.Each team did their chant and I was really amazed. Afterward Mr Slade and the teachers organized the points and added them together then he introduce who’s the winner and it was the Kiwi’s! We were really happy and cheerful but we tried to control ourselves not to be cocky about it. By the way it was the first time the team Kiwi had won something in Sports. We were so proud of our selves and so as the others.
