Every year during term 2 the year 7’s can finally get a break from the year 8’s as they are gone to a camping trip. While the year 8’s are away the year 7’s get of three days of fun indoor or outdoor activities and challenging games. Hearing this made me jump up happily! While they were gone we also had the chance of stepping up the leaders of the school.
From my perspective I thought that team building was a time where the year 7’s can step up as leaders for the school. However we had a whole lot of fun activities that includes working as a team like how we played human chain. But I did not expect this activity to be one it was the… Water Slide!! It has been a hard week so I was so excited for this one. I was also excited because I haven’t been on a water slide in ages!
When it was finally time for our fun water slide activity I had a big smile on my face. We were first instructed to put our spare clothes on then go and line up outside. As I stepped outside I could see dishwashing liquid everywhere and a lot of water spreading onto the court. While we were outside I was a nervous wreck because I had no idea we were going to be sliding on the court, even though there was a platform for us to slide on I was still scared I was going to scrape myself.
We sat down on the court and out teacher (Whaea Kelly) gave us the instructions. “OK! Blue Dogs and Red Rebels we are going to be doing a relay!”,Whaea kelly says with excitement. Both teams have huge smiles on their faces. Whaea kelly told us to line up in our team lines. For the relay we had to the first cone and do 5 push ups yes 5 pushups. Then we had to run to the next cone and do 10 star jumps and finally when we get to the last cone we do 4 sit ups.
“Are you ready!”, Whaea Kelly as she turns on the hose. “Yes”, Everyone replies. Except for me I was just standing the feeling shy! “GO”, Shouts Whaea Kelly. The first person goes and Whaea Kelly has a big grin on her face. I could tell that she was excited to torture us! BUt what was way worse was that the water was Cold!
A lot of people have already went by and I stood there feeling very nervous! I asked myself lots of questions like what if water goes up my nose? What if I fall and scrape myself? I was so not prepared. I was so caught up in my emotions that I didn't even know that it was already my turn! I ran and did my 5 pushups and I was so weak! The teacher did not feel sorry for us it was crazy!
I finally finished my turn and iI was so cold my hair was everywhere and I felt like I was frozen. When Whaea Kelly said If we want to go again then line up but I went back to change because I was done! I couldn’t take anymore of the coldness because the weather was kinda off. I think next time I should be more prepared for what's coming because at first I was so excited but it wasn’t what I expected!
