Cross Country

Cross Country is a sport event that involves long distance running. You are given a specific place to run in Cross Country. Our Senior Syndicate route went  up Castledine Crescent, up Apirana Avenue around Cintra Place and back down to Castledine Crescent.

All of Saint Pius students had to gather in the tennis courts. The senior syndicate were told to line up in their age groups starting from 8 to 13 years old. We were separated into lines and everyone was involved.

Cross Country only happens once a year at St Pius. My year group was the 11 years olds. Like some other seniors the 11 to 13 year olds had to run twice and others did the run once,
the day ended with the Junior Syndicate having their  run on the field.  

The school bell rang and everyone got into their lines ready to go back into class.  The races made everyone tired and exhausted.  It was a fun day full of hard work running around the neighbourhood.

Swimming Pool

My First time in the pool  this term was a really good experience for me and the water was also nice and warm,we started when Mrs Tui told us to streamline to the other but I was picked last with Leone.

But when I did it Leone accidentally hit me in the face because I swam too close but I was ok,then we were asked to do freestyle  I just knew a little about it .

I tried my best and got to the other side of the pool in two swims but I impressed by myself that I could because I thought I never could do that.

By the time we were finished I not only learned one way for swimming I had learned a lot technique for swimming.

        Tuesday 12th March

Yeah! It’s time for the triathlon training practice for rooms’ 7 and 6. It was going to be a great for me, this was the first time I did something like this ever. A triathlon event involves three sport events with everyone racing and competing against each other. Our events included biking, running and swimming. I was so excited! Everyone from both classes ran to the field and lined up.

We started off with biking (or what's known as transition). Lance and Adrian were our instructors for the biking event, we picked up our helmet and put it on and waited for instructions. The instructors said take your helmet off then do three star jumps, we did it five times with no rest it was very tiring. Feeling exhausted I pushed myself to keep going.

Our next event was running next. I wanted to jog and pace myself. I stayed at the back to run with some others. While we were running with Bret and Blair,  Bret split us into two teams randomly.There was team 1 and team 2, both teams competed against each other. First off we ran around the flags. Everyone was getting tired.

The last event for our triathlon was swimming. Everyone was really tired from just doing two events.
Today we didn’t do swimming. The day was fun but tiring at the same time. We finished of by doing some obstacle course they gave us. We said thank you to our team and instructors then ran to our class. Our day was fun out there. I really enjoyed my first experience at practicing for a triathlon.
