My First Lilyfontein Adventure Race

My first adventure race was held at inkwenkwezi game reserve and organised by Lilyfontein School. The adventure race was held in September 2012 and teams of children from different schools all took part. The teams consisted of four members and each team had to have at least one boy and one girl. The race was made up of a 40km cycling leg, a short paddle and a 10km running leg. The teams were all briefed on the night before the race.

Tummy Bug

On Friday I did not go to school, because I had a tummy bug. I woke up in the morning, showered, got dressed and ate some food. Then I stood, went into another room and threw up in the dog’s water bowel. I then was told by my mom that I could not go to school. I then got changed and went back to bed while my mom took my brother to school. I actually felt a little bit better after throwing up, but I still had to rest. I got bored, so I read a history book.

My First Surfers Marathon

I was 13 when I ran my first Surfers Marathon. The 2011 Surfers Marathon was the 37th surfers Marathon. We went in our car and parked our car near the finish line of the surfers marathon. We waited a while and my mom gave me some sun block, because it was a very hot day. When the busses came my mom, Tony and I got on one of the busses and I was anxious to go. After a short while the bus set off and we began our journey to the start of the Surfers Marathon at Kwelera Mouth. It felt hot and stuffy in the bus and it felt like we were in the bus for a long time. I felt exited that I was going to do my first … Read entire article »

The Last Two Weeks of School

In the last two weeks of school there were very few people and school came out early every day. Exams were over so there was no need to come to school, but I did even though I did not want to. At first I did jobs for merits for my merit card because I wanted to reach platinum award. I also got merits for doing well in my exams. In the first week some of the boys in my class and I did work on the cricket pitch. We loaded wheel barrows up with some sand bags and then unloaded the sandbags onto the cricket pitch. The sandbags were extremely heavy and it was tough work. We all complained. After that we took out weeds, swept the cricket pitch and … Read entire article »
