On Friday 24th August Saint Pius X Catholic school were participating in the 2012 X Country. Students were racing and the teachers were holding flags to the direction we have to go too. Also the parents were cheering and clapping for their kids and the students that they know.
When we were in the courts waiting for our turn we saw people as they were sitting in their ages in the court. We raced boys then girls and people came 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th. People who came 1st, 2nd and 3rd got a certificate.
We were running and we were all sweaty and tired of running, people were even hungry and thirsty and we wanted to eat and drink. Teachers were around the course holding flags, so as we went past the teachers they showed us the way like left, right, straight or across the road. Our principal Mr Coakley ran around the course 2 times because he had to check if there was any more children still running around the course. If there was still some more children he will be telling them to hold onto the rope because they were the last ones and we don't want them to be lost and they might go on the wrong track and there won't be teachers there anymore to see.
Parents were watching us as we were at the starting line beginning our race. They were cheering with excitement, and jumping up and down all happy. Some of Saint Pius children were getting a pain in their stomach, it was the stitch, ooh noo.
It was finally the end of the day and everyone was slowly going home, but first the parents had to come and get them instead of us walking to the car. I went home and I was feeling very exhausted and tired from all the running we had to do.
