On Wednesday morning after the athletics the students in St Francis wrote some interesting recounts of their experience.
Smash! Mrs Pryor banged the blocks. I could hear footsteps going tap, tap, tap! I wondered if I was going to be in the finals and I was. I saw runners staying in the lines. I could feel sticky and pokey grass under my feet when I was running.

Runners were sprinting past me like a pack of velociraptors. I felt the wind pushing me back like a yeti. I heard everyone cheering. I wondered which place I would come.
By Charlie (Year 2)
Crack! I heard Mrs Pryor bang blocks together then I started to run towards the finish line. Rosabella was in the lead and Laura was coming second. We ran like wild wolves. I was so happy I felt like I was going to pop. I wondered if I was going to be in the finals.
