Do you know what we did? Our school went to the auditorium for some fun! It was two weeks ago to celebrate the Olympics in Rio! First we had the flash of that flaming torch! (not really) The torch was made out of plastic. The flame was lit by a light. But what about the switch? Oh really, There's always a switch! Matua Faenza’s class had chants, as well as Mrs Graham’s class! Matua Faenza's class was team South Korea, and Mrs Graham’s class was team Australia. The chants were incredible! I felt awesome because I was in the obstacle course and I tried my best. At the obstacle course, we needed to do things with the obstacles. It was a great day..
