While the sun was beaming down on us, we were making our way down to the bottom field. Why, you may ask? Well our fabulous teachers had set up an AWESOME activity day where there are 4 game sections. Each section is run by a teacher and every 15 minutes we rotate to the next activity.
“SPLASH” Went the water as we dropped it into the dirty, but refreshing water. I watched as the sponge absorbed the water slowly. “GO” Mrs Nua shouted, My team seemed to still be asleep when the rest of the class heard her. “BROOKE HURRY UP!!” I screamed frantically, As if I was her mother, She rushed for the sponge. Around, Under, Around, Under, It seemed as if the sponge was travelling at 100 miles per hour. The thing I worried about the most was teamwork. This team I was in had 1 person I worked with perfectly, The others...Not so much. The result of this was...Well let’s just say that we didn’t come first but we didn’t come last. Let’s just leave it at that.
"We're playing Ball Tiggy" announced Mrs Langitupu. Another co-perative game? This should be good. The WHOLE class was practically fighting for coloured bands...Literally! First off I was put in the Yellow team...I wasn't very happy, So when I spotted a lonely blue band, I ruched for it. YES!! O.k, You must be thinking" Why is she so happy to get a blue band? It's only a band, Well you're wrong I was happy because It's my favourite colour...O.K It's only a little reason, Can't blame me for being so ecstatic. O.K back to the game. The first opposition team was red. I stayed in the game for a while, So I started having thoughts " Maybe I might like this game..."TAG!!!". I spoke too soon.
By the time I got to Miss Titos’ Game I was exhausted, and the weather wasn’t helping much either. So the aim of Miss Titos’ game was to try and fling a ball from an elastic band, so It can drop into 1 of the hoops. I watched the other anxiously and awaited my turn. Quickly, I grabbed the lightest ball I could see. “ I stepped up to the elastic band, thinking about my stratergy...O.K I didn’t have a strategy, but I had a plan: JUST LET GO OF THE BALL. That plan was absolutely WORTHLESS?? My first try I dropped the ball, The second time I was determined to get it far but...It dropped. Giving up on the 2nd try I made my way to the end of the line. I finally clicked as I sat down: The ball liked me soooo much, it didn’t want to leave my side.
Mr Harris’s activity required great concentration. It was a 3 legged race. Me and my Partner Mino, waited at the starting line....”GO” shouted Mr Harris. We were leading by MILES until, “NOOOOO” Our ball fell. We remembered our Korero Champions never give up so we stood up, and made our way to the cones. “BAM” We fell right in the middle of the race. Since the lace was REEEALLLY tight on our legs, It looked like it was going to cut through our skin. I panicked so i tried to untie it...Big mistake! I tied it the wrong way so we sat there, the searing pain was unbearable. Then when we I thought I was about to die, Toreka untied our lace. We both Gave her a HUGE hug. I was so thankful that, the lace was off. Thank goodness.
At the end of the day I was in a GREAT mood. That was probably the best day of the week!!! We only spent 1 hour on the field but it felt like a whole day!!!There is an important thing I learnt today: Teamwork is an Important value in life!
