Time for "ORIENTEERING"

So now the race begins for the Room 6 students who has their session of orienteering, we had a very interesting session of orienteering around the school of Saint Pius X. It was very difficult for some of the students to read our school map including me. For the first session we were confused but then we got the hang of it on our second and our last session of orienteering. As we were struggling to find the control markers, people were on their last course, sadly it wasn't the whole school. But sadly it wasn't the whole school who got a turn to experience how orienteering works, and how it goes. The only classes that had the chance to have their first time in their life time to do orienteering was only the senior part of the school, which was Room 3 the year 5 and six's. Room 7 the year seven and eights, and the last group to do orienteering was Room 6 the year six and sevens. Our orienteering field day was at Waiatarua Reserve. Doing orienteering was so awesome, we all got to run around get to compete against one another. We all did our best and we all did well in our first session. But I'm pretty sure that it's not about winning, but it's okay to just have fun and try your best. In Room 6's first session were all excited and couldn't wait to get outside. So then afterwards we finally got a chance to do a little session of orienteering, we started around our classroom than we made a circle with controls. Our task was to go around the circle and we couldn't go backwards, so just to make sure of it for and example. If we went around the circle and you had just missed it, you'll have to go right back around the circle and then punch the holes from the control onto your piece of paper. It was real good fun but except from the whole class I was probably the only one who missed a control and had to go right back around, I was so bombed out I screamed at myself as my other classmates were passing by looking at me like I had some crazy thing wrong with me. But than I got to it and than people were screaming out "I'd finished, I'd finished" and than they gave their piece of paper to our leader Irene. Later on I was the last one to finish and our session was over, all the other students were all puffing like they were all out of breath including me as well. We had to go for lunch and we were all racing to the classroom as some students would have been walking. I was telling my teacher Mrs Moodley how fun our session was and how I felt, we were all so blesses to have a chance to have sessions of orienteering. So then the day game to an end and we were all so tired, I had fun and probably so as the rest of us. It was so awesome that I wanted to go home and scream at my dad and tell him all of it, but I didn't want to make my dad death or anything so than I went home that day and told him nice and calmly. Then I had went to school hoping that we'll have another session but sadly it was only every Wednesday, well I felt kind of upset that we never had sessions everyday but than otherwise I feel so blessed already having to do orienteering. From my point of view orienteering is the best activity to know and play, when I did my first session I wanted to play it everyday but we couldn't. But it was alright because I was going to do it every Wednesday until our their time was up teaching at St Pius X school. We all had great fun.
