Kauri team event Merit evidence #1 (Jellie Park)
On Friday the whole Karui team went to Jellie park for the swimming sports. Once we got there the leaders sat away form everyone else because we had to help out. Once we were settled we had some morning tea. After that we went and got changed and then the races started. You could choose width of length, I chose width. First we started with the width races and worked up the year levels so the year 4 boys went and then the year 4 girls and so on. There were 2 races that you had to do, they were kickboard and freestyle. My results were 4th in kickboard and 2nd in freestyle. After all the width races were done we did the house activities. All the leaders had to help because we had organised them. The 2 games were called madness where we throw objects in the pool and the house that gets them all back the fastest wins. The other game was splash, the aim of that game was the house that made the biggest splash wins. After that we had lunch and then we did the length races. After that we went back to school but there was 1 problem, there weren't enough buses so we had to wait for about an hour and when we got back to school the time was nearly 4 o'clock. I showed leadership by listening to the teachers when I was meant to.
