Getting involved at lunchtime! 28/2/2017
It is 12:45 at lunchtime, my friends and I are eating inside together hearing the teachers read out the notices online and on the board for today. One of them was that there would be a game of capture the flag on the field at lunchtime today which me and my friends were very interested in. We decided to get involved and play with the other kauri students on the field playing this game. We jogged over to where the pals had set it up on the field after the teachers had let us go out to enjoy lunch. They asked us to take a side, either bibs or non bibs, we chose non bibs because it would be easier to run without them. After they'd evened out the teams the first round begins and we race to the center line and try to get through to the opponents side without getting tagged, grab a flag and get back across! It was quite hard to do this though because the opposite team had very good defenders so it was almost impossible! Unfortunately the other team won and we went back to our sides to begin the second round.
The whistle blows and its back to the excitement and positive attitude! This time I dodge my way to the other side and finally make it across with a few other people that managed to make it. I grab a flag and take off at top speed, luckily most of the other team were looking the other way trying to not let people in so it was way easier to get back across to our side! We won this round safely with big smiles on our faces that we'd beaten the other team for a round that went well. But not for long because since we tied it was to the third round we had to move onto which was much harder because people were trying to win because this was the tie breaker but everyone was also very tired from the last two rounds. Sadly the last game was given to the other team through hard work and because they got three flags across to their side before our team. They won fair and square and that's what good sportsmanship is about!
