The First Kiwi Sport Of The Year

Room 7 raced towards the tennis court . I ran and grabbed a racket and ball . I stood next to a net . I was VERY excited . Marcel , our instructor , taught us some basic tennis skills. I just couldn’t wait to play tennis on a beautiful Tuesday morning.

We were split into groups of seven. It was time to play King/Queen of the court. I was the first one to be the king . I raced to the other side of the net. Agnes served the ball . I was nervous . I forgot what to do. The ball bounced once, I ran towards the ball as fast as I could. Suddenly the ball touched the ground again. I was out.

I found it funny that I was beaten by a girl. Sadly our lesson was over. I slowly walked to put my racket down. I didn’t want to leave. I was having fun. We kindly said thank-you to Marcel. We went back to the classroom.

This lesson was really fun. It was my first time playing tennis. I can’t wait for next week. I’m gonna try harder.

Opening Mass For The Year

Today is the opening mass of the year 2012. We do these things as catholics. In the first reading the message I got was not to loaf around and to not be a burden. I am going to work very hard this year.

During the mass I did a special part. I was reading one of the prayers of the faithful. I felt great when I saw the smiles on the teachers’ faces and the people. It was a very special time for me.

It was wonderful how father blessed the teachers at the end of the mass. What a lovely way to begin the year.
