Athletics Day

Friday was a nerve - wracking day. I was so nervous in the first race. Everyone was competitive and wanted to win. As I was about to run I felt an adrenaline pumping through my body, sweat rushing down my back. I ran like a civilian fleeing from a war bomb.

The 800m race was scary. My heart pumped rapidly. It was beating fast and faster. “Go!” shouted Mr Gaffney. I started sprinting, it was still pumping but it didn’t stop. Boom, boom, boom, i could feel it. We ran twice round, but then Ofa caught up and I started to jog. Ofa then sprinted to the finish line. Oh well bad luck for me. I was tricked.

At least I came 2nd. But coming 1st was my aim. Better luck next time I thought. I congratulated Ofa with a hug. “Congratulations Ofa” I said. “Thanks Liz”, she replied. I was disappointed. At least I tried. What a day.

My Prayer - Station of the cross

Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for giving me life to live. I'm sorry for the sins I've done through what I say, think, and do. Help me to think wisely , act wisely and say wise things.I'm grateful for what you did on the cross for my sins. Help me to remember your journey to Calvary. Fill my heart with your love.

New Tool

We were all excited. We couldn't stop chatting about this project. There was excitement all over the room, we were all waiting impatiently for our little netbook. “Yes i got it!”, I said. I couldn't follow Ms G instruction, but i just wanted to log on. The big countdown. "How boring!" I said. But that was the only way to log on. We pressed the power button simultaneously.

It was like the bestest moment of my class time. All of us couldn’t stop talking, shaking because it was like a light that lit up the room full of happiness. I felt fortunate. I counted myself as one lucky person. Receiving this project really means something to me, but I know I’ll use it wisely.

What an experience I had with it. A great opportunity. Instead I’m grateful and thankful I had that opportunity.
