Swimming Sports

 On Tuesday the 22nd of March, 2011 the senior room went to Te Awamutu Events Centre for swimming sports,  since we arrived early we got to have a play in the pool just to see how deep it was and get use to the water.
The schools that went to the swimming sports were Hauturu school, Kawhia School, Piri Piri School, Kinohaku school and of course Ngutunui school.   The races started with the yearr fours and went up to the year eights. We started with free style ,Henare came 2nd ,Kohu also got 3rdand Renee had got last.  then we did back stroke but we were not that good, Henare got 4th, Kohu came 2nd  and Renee came last again.      
Some of the people from each school got in the finals.  Two people from Ngutunui School won the medley, they were Aleisha and Kalem.
Then we had lunch.  After lunch we had the finals and a lot of students from Ngutunui School were in the finals.  Kohu was in every final, Henare was in every final as well and Renee was in none of the finals.
We all had a go at all of the events except the medley ,but some did. But no one did the relay because we left so we could get on the bus  to  get home . 
Basically everyone got an ice-cream on the way back to  school. When we got to the school we were all tired but in the end we had a really good time.


  1. Hi Ngutunui Seniors,
    It sounds like you had a really successful day at your swimming sports and had lots of fun. I was wondering how some of you felt when you made it to the finals? Were you feeling nervous, excited, exhilarated, challenged?
