Water Fun Day

On Monday the 18th of February, at Glenbrae school we celebrated summer by having a ‘Water Fun Day’. We were assembled into house groups. Mrs Raj dropped us into our house areas. The house colours were red, green, yellow and blue. Every team had to walk around the court and practise their chants. Next we had to listen very carefully to Mrs Ripata to tell us what activity we are going to first. The first activity that we participated in was passing our sponge filled with water under our legs in the team. At this activity were Ms Rudduck and Miss Atuahiva. It was so much fun because Vili squirted us with the hose and it felt good. Our team was funny and smart because we were trying to cheat so the red team could win. After the first activity, we went to Mrs George. The activity was ‘Crossing the River’. It was very slippery because we went on the bench. We had to fill the carton with water and then run to our own house coloured bin to pour the water in. After that we went to Mr Nath and Mrs Grenham. In pairs we had to tie a band around our feet. The pair got a cup of water and ran to the house colour bin to drop the water. It was funny because some cups were cracked and did not hold much water. Then, we went to the area that Mrs Raj and Mrs Maruariki were. Their activity was ‘Over and Under. The red team was trying to beat the green team. The activity we came to was the second to last. It was ‘Zig Zag’. That activity was with Mrs Pome’e and Mrs Moopanar. We had to zig zag around the cones with our cups of water and we had to run to the house colour bin to empty them. Finally the water slide was our last activity. At the water slide were Mrs Pauvale, Miss D and Mrs Holderness. Miss D told us to sit in blue, green, yellow and red house teams. We all had a cup each with water in it. I slid down the waterslide and a lot of water from my cup fell out. I had an excellent day and everyone was clapping and cheering. It was awesome because it was so sunny and bright and not raining. My favourite activities were crossing the river and the water slide. By Edwina
