We walked into the Edgar Centre fizzing with excitement. We sat down on the courts and got told where we were going to play our first game of cricket and then straight away we ran off to our first game. After our first game we had morning tea so we would have enough energy to play our last two games. When our last game had finished we sat down on the courts again and we all got given a goody bag. The cricket fun day was alot of fun. Sinead

On Wednesday the 18th of August Sinead, Kymberlee and Olivia were chosen to compete in the speech competition. This year our speeches had to be about topic to argue about. We got marked on how we spoke. We all had learnt our speeches off by heart but some people from Outram hadn’t. We all were very nervous but we still succeeded well. Then after everyone had spoken they had a prize giving. Olivia came 1st in the year 6 competition. But on Thursday we had found out that Kymberlee came 3rd.

In the weekend, 12th June, I had a basketball tournament in gore. We got there on Friday night had a meeting, supper and went to bed. We got up early in the morning. It was freezing cold and we had to play South Canterbury at 10am. We had to get up have breakfast and get ready for the game. When we got there it was just a tin shed with a court in it. So it was freezing. We got our boots on warned up we were all tired. I started on the bench. I went on when were losing. I was sitting there waiting to get subbed on. I was so nervous. I walked on, I was passed the ball I dribbled it down the court. I passed the ball cut in but the pass wasn’t there. We scored. They were dribbling down, we got the steal. I sprinted down got the pass and scored. After a while I got subbed off. I did not get back on. We started to make a come back. There was twenty seconds left it was their ball they scored. There was ten seconds left and a kid from my team put up a big hook shot. It went high in the air then it dropped down and went and went straight through the hoop. They passed the ball in but the buzzer went. The ref said five minutes of overtime. It was our ball. The other team only had four players because some were fouled off. After two minutes anther got fouled off. So they had three players left. We won in overtime by six points. What a win!
We got warm and got back to camp. We had our next game at 6pm. We had to go watch the A team play. They smashed their team so we did not watch it all. We got back to camp and had lunch. We got to go on the flying fox but it was too cold for me. I was not allowed on the slide because I had my singlet and shorts on. We got ready for our game against Southland. We got into our car and left. When we got there we got ready to start. After the first quarter we found out there best player. I scored again. I got lots of game time in that game. We won by a bit. Then we were in the final the next day. We had to play the A team. We got nearly no sleep because a kid keep talking. We got to the court and got ready to play. We lost the tip. It was even near the start but they got on a roll and we could not stop them. I got heaps of game time. We lost by forty five points. We had a prize giving at the end. We got a Moro bar and certificate and the A team got a drink and certificate. We got our gear and headed home. An Awesome weekend!

It was Saturday morning and I had butterflies jumping in my tummy and my nerves were going crazy. I had my weet-bix and milk for a nutritious breakfast. Then it was off to the pool. It was nerve racking standing on the start block. The whistle blows then I hear the “on your marks”. I hold still, and then beep; I was off like a flash into the water swimming as fast as I can. I had so many things going round my head. I am now on the home straight to the end of the heart racking race. I was relieved that the race was over at that stage but I still had 8 more to go.
I got my first silver that weekend in 50 back and a bronze in my 100 free. I got into the Adam and Eve relay.
