Yesterday we had our annual swimming sports. It was a lot of fun. This year we didn’t have any of the normal, competitive races like freestyle, breaststroke and backstroke. Instead, we had novelty challenges like the noodle, kickboard combo. The only rule was that you had to get both noodle and kickboard from one end of the pool to the other. How you did it was up to you. We also used a bucket as a flotation device.
Another popular event was the clothing relay. Contestants had to swim fully clothed, not an easy thing to do. In the seal race, contestants pushed a ball with theur nose, It sounds easy but it is much harder than you imagine.
It was a great day. Everyone had lots of sunblock on. You can’t be too careful in New Zealand’s harsh sun. Burn time was down to less than 15 minutes. Thanks to Mr Pressnell for organising the day and Whaea Puhi for taking the photos.
