My Holiday

My school holiday was very boring, most of the time was spent playing games with Pauliasi and Jay. One day during the holidays Pauliasi, and I wanted to do something different, so we asked Tania if we could go swimming pools, and she said “yes”. We walked from Line Rd to the Panmure swimming pools, it was a very long walk. When we got to the swimming we were very happy because Pauliasi and I didn’t have to pay to swim.

In the swimming pool Pauliasi and I joined up with some other kids to play some games. Touch was my my favourite game we played at the swimming pool, there was 3 people in each team.

When we got tired of playing games we decided to get out of the pool and get changed. When we finished getting changed we walked back home, we were very tired. When I got home I went straight to my room and slept.
