Kyal Cross Country

On the day of the cross country I felt nervous for the run. But l knew I was going to come somewhere but not last. We had it at our school Pt England School. People were watching, like families, teachers, everybody was there. We had it on Thursday 11th of September.

When the whole school started cross country there was year 1 to year 8. We needed to run in different year groups. There were teachers in different checkpoints along the course. There was 1 to 24. There were 4 house teams like yellow, green, red and blue. The names are Te Arawa, Tainui, Matatua and Takitimu.

When I got halfway to the 2nd lap l just ran fast. And tried my hardest to run fast. When I finish the race I was happy. Because we don’t have to run again for cross country praise. When we finish the run we all had a glass of water. Then after than we all sit in our groups. And finally we had finish for the last day.

I felt very tired and my heart was pumping hard as. When l had a glass of water l could it breath. I was so so so so tired.

Kyal Ban Plastic Bags

Dear Prime Minister John Key

I am writing this letter to tell you that you should ban plastic bags. I think that plastic bags are so bad because it will kill all of the sea animals. It might make the sea polluted . Did you know that 1 billion plastic bags are used in NZ each year?

People get plastic bags from shops, markets, Shopping centres, and The WareHouse.  They pay 10 cents for one plastic bag each. Sometimes you get some plastic bags for free. It makes rubbish on the road, rivers, and trees.

I think that people should use cloth bags.

Yours sincerely
