Two weeks before gala sports, all the grade 5/6‘s were practicing their sport with their teams for gala sports day. There were 4 different sports you could choose from, volley ball, bat tennis, cricket and soft ball. I chose volleyball.
I was captain of my volley team, and I had to put everyone in their position of playing. The captain of the other team was Mia. And every recess and lunch time all the volley ball players would practice before the day.
On the 6th of March was the first day of the real gala sports. The park we played at was called Fairburn Park. All volley ball players sat together, and practice hitting the ball to each other before their first game.
We played three games of volleyball in a day, and the first game my team played was against Essendon North blue, and sadly we lost our first game. Our second game was against Niddrie yellow, and we won! Everyone had done very good catches, and serves, and even digs. And for our last game of the day we played against St Vincent’s blue, we lost.
Once both teams had finished each of their games we had breaks before our next game to eat, practice, go to the canteen, or cheer on other teams. By the end of the day everyone got back on the bus back to school.
On the 13th was the last day of gala sports. The first game my team played against was St Vincent’s yellow. And we won. For the second game we played against Aberfeldie and one that game. And the third game we played against Strathmore north. After all three games that was it for the grade 5’s, but since it’s the last year of the grade 6’s doing gala sports they got to play a 4th game. And we played against St Vincent’s yellow. And we one!
Overall M.P.P.S came 7th but still had a great time playing. After hearing our scores we got back on the bus to go back to school, to go home.
