The Cross-Country Race

On Wednesday in the afternoon everyone from Ruapotaka School (including the teachers) went up to Rooms One to Five to get ready to either watch or run in The Cross-Country Race. 

The students participated in the race, while the families and staff members spectated. I enjoyed watching the juniors run as they made a huge effort to finish the race. 

simultaneously felt nervous while running. When it was nearly my turn, I tried hard to focus. 

We waited for a couple of minutes ..... "GO!" yells Mrs Pederson. I quickly ran out of the gates and when I tried to finish I tripped up and scraped my knee. 

Unfortunately I didn't finish the race, but there's always next year.

Training To Be A Basketball Legend

On Wednesday (31.09.2016) the senior block of Ruapotaka School practised playing basketball. A man who coaches an Under 13 girl's team and Under 11 boy's team taught us some drills.

We were in teams of four, but some had five. In my team were Azahar, Mika, Quros and James. For our drills, we had to run around cones, practise blocking the defender and so on. 

It was lots of fun, and I can't wait until he comes back again.
