Hoop Time

On the 19th of June the year 3’s and 4’s from our school participated in Hoop Time at MSAC. Some of the students from 4Ek would like to share their experiences with you.

 

On 19th of June we where going to MSAC to play basketball for Hoop Time. I was in the All Star Boys team. I was so excited to get out onto the court and play basketball. Last year I played Hoop Time and we did well so I knew what I was up for. I did not know why I was so nervous, but when I got there the nerves disappeared and I felt great beacause I was ready to play. My team had a great first 4 games and we were undefeated. We made it to the Grand Final that was when the nerves really kicked in. But guess what? We won!! Yes! It was the best day ever. Hoop Time is great fun and I recommend it to all schools.           – Joel

Hooray hooray Hoop Time!. We got to go to MSAC to play all different schools sround Victoria for Hoop Time. If we won the grand final we got to go to the next level. My team the All Star Boys won all our games including the grand final. So, on October 29th the All Star Boys are going to the regional finals.               – James
