On Monday the students who were swimming went to change into their togs and goggles. The student who were going were me, Rosalina, Christopher, Alecia, Patrick, Victoria, Misiotei, Villiami, Faleaka and Manu.
When the students went to the swimming pool we learnt how to swim with the board. The coach explained to us “put your hands on the front of the board and hold it ”. We put our hands on the front of the board and held it. “and kick” she said “Now two people come to this side of the pool” said the coach.
“Now we are going to put our hands on the bottom of the board and put our whole head in the water without standing up” explained the coach. We were holding the board and doing the right thing just like the coach explained.
Jillian asked “two students come now”, I went with Rosalina. “Now we are going to do arm circles by having a race” so then we went to do it “on your marks, get set, go”. Viliami came 1st, Alecia came 2nd, I came 3rd, Rosalina came 4th, Misiotei came 5th, Victoria came 6th, Patrick came 7th, Faleaka and Manu came last.
Jillian said “Now you guys can have free time but there is no pushing and no drowning other people also no standing on the stairs and jumping off. If you guys do this you will go out for 3 minutes”. I went under the water and I saw Faleaka and I waved my hand. When I went up I saw Faleaka and I talked to her in Tongan. After that she told me “I will go under your legs you go under my legs”.
“Okay” I said. We went to play it then I said “can we play something better?” “okay” said Faleaka. When Jillian said “now we have to get out ” all of us said “okay”. The students all went out to change in the changing room.
I loved swimming because we got to do races when we were learning.
