Black out day

It was with huge, excitement that I got my dressed for school today. It was Black Out Day. Black Out Day was to show our support for the All Blacks on the opening day of the Rugby World Cup.

Running down the footpath, I shouted "Stop", as I saw my friend. On my way to school, most people I saw were wearing black. Coins jingled in my pocket as I bounced about excitedly - I was going to buy a sausage for my lunch.

Arriving at school, I noticed, that even the teachers were wearing all black. Miss Tito and Miss Va’afusuaga even had black wigs on and also had painted faces. I love it when our whole school gets behind an idea.

At assembly, Mr Burt kept telling stories. They were about the times when he was at rugby game and he was not wearing his hat. Lots of yucky things would fall on his head and even end up in his car. I love Mr Burt’s stories, he is a great storyteller.

For fun, in our classroom we painted some All Black players. Each group found their smallest member and we traced around them. Next, we painted our players black so that they were wearing the All Blacks uniform. It was fun, I like painting.

After morning tea our classrooms all went to the courts to play some rugby games. The sun was shining and the sevens boys had set up some fun looking games. I was in team Russia.

Playing out on the field, the big boys taught us lots of rugby skills. Tackling, kicking and throwing were just some. My favourite game was the tackle bag obstacle course. I loved it because I got to knock Feki over!

After all the games it was lunchtime. I ate my sausage under the shade of some trees - it felt like summertime.

I had such a great black out day and I really hope that the All Blacks can win tonight. My brother is supporting Tonga, but I don’t know if they can win.
