The Athletic Sports Day

The Athletics Sports Day
Last Friday the whole school had athletics. We started with mass first and when we’d finished we went with our class to sit on the mat. Mrs Pole told the girls to go and changed into their sports clothes and we did. Then the boys needed to change and they did. Next we needed to get our drink bottles and go to our teams. I was in Kiwis and Angelica was our leader so we lined up in line’s Like 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12. The seniors sat at the back and the 5 year olds sat at the front.
First to run were the 5 year olds. They went to Mr Gaffney who set their race. He clapped his blocks and they ran. Soon after it was the 7 year old girls turn to run. I ran in that race and I came 5th in the heat. I was sad because I could not run the final. Next were the 8 year olds who needed to run and then 9 year olds. After them were the 10 year olds.
As the day went on everyone had a run. At the end I was very tired from all the fun I had and my legs were very sore.

Our First Confession

Last night Wednesday night I made my first reconciliation and confession. I was excited. When I’d finished doing my hair my sister and I raced to the car. Meanwhile when we got there my dad and sister and I went inside and got a seat, when we were ready we started.

Father and some other Priests came in and sat down. After Father had said some things we had our CONFESSION. I was SCARED and NERVOUS. When it was my turn I tried to be confident and calm. When I’d finished I was happy. Later when it was all finished there was cake, I didn’t have any because we were going to McDonald’s! Later on after we’d eaten our dinner I went to bed and thanked Jesus for helping me feel confident and calm. I was very happy indeed because I had made my FIRST Confession and Reconciliation.

A Fun Day at Netball

On Tuesday Room 4 was lining up. So Room 4 went to the court. So Julie and Emma went to the court. They said hello to Room 4. Emma and Julie came to Room 4. They picked three people to get the bib's. There were yellow bibs and blue bibs. I was in the yellow team. I was catching the ball and I caught it. Room 4 was in front of me so I threw the ball. Julie said I had it then she said, 'get me some space.' I went to Emma to play a game with the ball. Emma said she wanted 4 people. I threw it to Room 4 and they passed it back. After we finished Room 4 lined up to go home. When I was going home I sat in the front off the car and my cousin Sam was at the back. Once we got home I was very tired and went straight to bed.
