Did you know what the whole school did two weeks ago? The whole school was there in the auditorium. We did the school olympics to celebrate the olympics in Rio. First we had the opening ceremony. It was cool when the head boy and head girl lit the torch. There were chants as loud as a lion roar. Next we had the sports, I was in the bean bag race. We had to balance the beanbag on our head. I think we came third in the race.  After the activities we had the closing ceremony. When they put off the touch . Then we got a medal which was a lollipop. I felt proud because I did my best.
