Yesterday at school we all had to do the Cross Country run. The different age groups ran different distances. My age group ran a whole lap of our school grounds. I am in grade three and I had to run against the grade fours too. I came 2nd. The people who came first, second or third got a medal. When I was about to get my medal the lady that was presenting the medals nearly gave me a first medal. I said, “Shoudn’t I be getting a second place medal.”
Here is a picture on me getting my medal
Here is a picture of me, Ava and Jordi before the race.
Ava is in the yellow top, Jordi is in the red top and I am in the green top.
The older grades had to do two laps of the school ground. My sister is in grade six and it is her last year of school here at Leopold. My sister was hoping to come first and she did.
The kids from grade three and above that finished in the top ten places will compete aginst other schools in the district cross country run.
One university student chose to run every race and show us the correct track. He had to do the girls and boys so he ran more than ten laps of our school. I want to say well done to the university student, Ben.
Congratulations to all the people that did cross country.
Also congratulations to Mitchell who did six wheelchair laps of the basketball courts.
