Rhiannon Talbot, Grade 1, The Pines Junior and Primary Schools
One morning I got up and I said, “ I hope it’s not netball today because I don’t like big crowds. If I miss a goal they will always say booo. That’s why I don’t want to play netball.
When I got to netball, I didn’t feel so scared. When I was goal shooter, it was a draw. Then the ball came to me. I counted 1,2,3, push and the ball went in the ring. Everyone cheered.
Even, Shannon in the crowd cheered. Shannon asked me, “Can you teach me how to play netball?” So I did. Then Emily interfered and threw the ball and hit me in the nose and my nose was bleeding.
Then it stopped and we went home. I fell asleep on the way home. Then I got home and woke up and said I am a hero because I have a trophy.
