Yesterday we went to the House
It was held at Landy Field. We do the athletics every year. It is really fun!
The grade 3s, 4s, 5s and 6s travelled to Landy Field on buses with their teachers. Parents were welcome to come and watch their children. The teachers were running the events for the day. Miss Jordan and Mrs Morris were taking hurdles.
The events were high jump, hurdles, discus, shot put, 100 metre run, 200 metre run, long jump and triple jump. At the end if you wanted to, you could do the 800 metre run.
Landy Field is a big oval with running tracks. It has lots of space to do events. There are lots of seats where you can sit down and watch events.
At Leopold there are four “houses” (which are like teams) and every student belongs to one house. The houses are Paterson, Lawson, Dennis and Gordon. After every event points are tallied up for each house and a winner is announced at the end of the day. The winning house yesterday was Lawson!
If you came first in an event, you got a blue ribbon, if you came second you got a red ribbon, if you came third you got a green ribbon and if you came fourth you received a white ribbon.
