“ROOM 17 PLEASE REPORT TO THE GATE”!!!!!!!! Ms Garden screeched. So I ran as fast as
I could. Did you know that in Aotearoa the law is that everybody has to learn how to swim
because New Zealand is surrounded by water?
When we got to the pools we had to get changed and have a shower to get rid of the dirt and the
chemicals. After rinsing myself I walked back to the bench and about two seconds later I was
shivering because I was so cold.
“Here you go”, said the instructor while she handed the flutter boards to us. Then she explained
“okay everybody, put your hands on the end of the board and kick all the way to the island and
then stop”. For me it was quite easy.
But when we had swam two lengths of the pool She said, “ Pile the boards on the top of the pool.
and now we are going to do freestyle.”She showed us a technique to keep our hands straight. I
held my arms high and held them together as hard as I could then I just kicked furiously and my
arms flapped like a duck flying away from an alligator. I thought I did very well.
The lady said “How do you know all our techniques.” I replied ,” I know because I go swimming
lesson here and I am in silver”. ( Silver is the second best group out of 8)
So she moved me to group three the best group.
I thought that it was cool at swimming because I knew the instructors.But the water was so cold.
The End
