Friday the 13th November 2009 was a great day for athletics. It was Day One of our Inter-House Athletics.
There was a buzz around the school. Excited students and painted faces. I was in the Intermediate Boys Group A which was Calliope and Orpheus House. We all lined up outside on the netball courts, waiting for Miss Waetford’s instructions. Then each group proceeded to their first event. The events for the day were 100m, 200m, long jump, high jump, hurdles, shot put, discus and javelin.
Our first event was the long jump. It was a great event and Patrick from Calliope House jumped the furthest. We proceeded to our next event which was high jump. I didn’t like that event but I still tried. Unfortunately it didn’t go well again. I couldn’t wait for our next event the 100 metre sprint. This was my favourite event because I came 2nd but again Patrick came first. We were off to our last event, the hurdles. The hurdles were different this year. It was like a game obstacle. This time Orpheus won.
I think Athletics was so coll. I felt like doing it again!
