Yesterday, the 11th of February, MPPS had a swimming carnival. It was fun and all, but the water was so freezing, I couldn’t do my first event, 50m freestyle. I missed out on my second event, 50m breaststroke. I did do my third event which was the 50m freestyle relay. The most fun event that I did was the wading race.
We walked to the swimming pool and got all set up and had a so called, “warm up swim”. Of course I didn’t go in because it was so cold. I couldn’t even put my whole body in the water because it was that cold.
Then all the freestyle started. Yes, I didn’t do my freestyle event. My friend, Cindy, came second. I didn’t go in the event because the water was cold and I wasn’t that confident at swimming.
Then it was backstoke. I didn’t have a backstroke event. It finally came to breaststroke and I missed it because I wasn’t paying attention to which event was after. There also open butterfly event that any girls/boys could go in.
There were some more events before the relay I was in. When it eventually came, I was third in it. We came fourth but My other friend, Lydia, had to start before I got to her.
There were more relays that I watched then there was the cork scramble then the kick board relay and then it was the wading race. My team came second.
We had free swim after that. Then we had to pack up and get changed then walk back to school. We played for a little bit and then had an assembly.
Guess who won overall? My house color, Banks, won(banks is blue). Then Lawson, green, came second, chisolm, yellow, came third and lastly but not least, macarthur, red, came last.
The day was fun and in the end, my team ended up winning!!!
