November 13th was an exciting day for everyone it was the school Athletics day. There was an exciting vibe in the bus that we were in.
When we got off the bus everyone got there stuff and headed off inside the park/arena that we were doing our events in. The first event was 1500m {or 1.5 kilometre run} there were four teams competing in the events Kowhai,Kauri,Rimu,Totara Everywhere we goooo! people wanna know who we are so we tell them we are the mighty the mighty mighty Kowhai We are Kowhai We are Kowhai ayeeeee. That was my groups chant.

At last it was the 12vies turn BANG we were off although there weren’t many people who did it it still was a good race. We all ran as hard as we could and did not give up throughout out anything first was Brody Wedding-Andrew {me}, 2nd jared Rackham,
3rd Shaun Wassel and just missing out, in 4th Samuel Kumar.

After 1500 we had a 30 minute break, after our break we had high jump we headed over there and got ready to jump. Everyone besides Brody {me}, Lennox and Ryan Failed the jump 1st was Lennox and second was Brody after having a jump off with  at jumping 1.16 m and obviously third was Ryan.
