Swimming Sports 2018

 

I won for Matai the starfish competition and was puffed out at the end. I was nervous when all the parents were watching me. Ocean Penny


When I heard my name get called out I felt pretty nervous and then I got in the water and it was freezing cold! I got in anyway. When I had finished all my events I felt so proud because I had come second in both heats and in the finals I came FIRST!

I was nervous until I had to get up and manu. I jumped and did my best manu. I came in second place on my first jump. BUT… I had a comeback and took first place on my final jump.                      Manaia Philburn


    

On Wednesday I went to the swimming sports. I went swimming in the sparkly white pool. It was freezing. It was like an ice cube.

When I cheered for Totara I almost lost my voice and it was awesome.

Zoom! The race had started. I moved my arms as fast as a flash of lightning. I could hear Rimu House cheering for ME! I never had swum a whole length before. Even though I came last it was still fun and I was proud of my swimming.

 P.S. IT WAS COLD

I felt excited because it was swimming sports day. My favourite part was the coin collecting. I got lots!

2018 PCT Report

Posted on 29 March 2018

PCT Challenge at Melville Intermediate March 1st 2018

On Thursday 1st March, Te Rapa Primary School sent 10 students to compete in the 2018 Waikato

Regional PCT Competition.


The students were split evenly into 2 teams - Te Rapa Red and Te Rapa Blue. The competition was hosted by Melville Intermediate School where all the field activities were held. The swimming event, which was the last competition of the day, was held at the Gallagher Aquatic Centre.


48 schools competed in events such as the PCT (Physical Competency Test) course, the 20M car push, Strategy Thinking/ Problem Solving test and the swimming relays.


It was a tough competition with so many schools there, but the teams had lots of fun. Overall, Te Rapa Blue came 19th and Te Rapa Red placed 20th.


Both teams would like to thank the parent support with transport to and from the venue, as well as supervising and cheering the teams on.

 

 

Some thoughts about the day:


"I liked the Strategy Thinking/ Problem Solving activity because you had to

sometimes think outside the box and not over-complicate it.” - Tiare Parker


"My favourite part of the day was the car push because we kept improving our times the more we did it.” - Mya Pilcher


"I really enjoyed the physical challenges, especially the ones that got us competing against other schools and we ended up muddy and dirty!” - Oliver O’Connor
