After checking my camera, I totally forgot to write about the sports festival that occurred back in September. I did go to one back in June, but I usually make sure I go to my Wednesday’s school’s one, which takes place in the fall. Unfortunately it got rained out two days in a row, changing the date from Saturday to a Thursday. Luckily since my Wednesday school shares their event with my junior high (they’re nearby and most students go there after they graduate), I could still attend.
The lame part was that since the event was moved to a school day, former teachers and students were unable to attend the event. It sucked because my favorite teacher that transferred, Kimoto-sensei, could no longer come. I’m sure some former third years would’ve come too but now I missed a chance to see them all. You could tell some of the students were bummed out from this but we still had a sports festival to do.
One thing that was great was the weather. It was a beautiful, sunny day out. There were also some new games that were featured this year. The one that got everyone’s attention was an event where students had to race to form a pole and the leader had to climb it as fast as they could to win.
Once again, I was told to participate in the staff/student bunny hop dance. As soon as I jumped in, all of my second year boys got excited and joined me. The point of the dance is similar to a congo line except you’re doing bunny hops. Anyways, by the end, I had all of the second year boys and instead of having a line, we just had a giant circle that were doing the dance in a circular fashion. Everyone was watching us saying stuff like “What the heck are they doing?” or “Why are they going in a circle??” It was pretty funny.
Here are some pictures of the event:
This year’s sports festival was my third years final one. It’s sad to think about but they really went out when it came to their dance. I wonder how next year’s will turn out
