It was a very special memory for us this day (1 Dec). We were fully prepared as we had a lot of practices during mornings and afternoons. It was pretty special as we had added drama elements into it. From starting to memorize the stanzas to practising the drama was a tough but enjoyable process.
The day finally came as we started to have more rehearsals than before. We even skipped some of our classes to do our last preparation. Everyone was extraordinarily serious to use our last chance to prepare.
Time flew quickly and we arrived at the competition’s venue fully armoured. It was our turn to perform right after we had arrived. The two poems were “The Dragon’s Birthday Party” and “The Hippopotamus song” and we have chosen the second one. Students from other schools had also got their costumes as hippos and seekers. It was hilarious as everybody looked weird in it!
The competition went smoothly as there were almost no mistakes in our performance and other schools performed brilliantly too. It was a pretty hard time while wanting for the results.
Mrs Lam always says “Winning is not everything”. Although it was a pity that we were only one mark behind the champion, we still enjoyed the practices we had. Lastly, I want to thank all of our teachers, especially our coach Mr. Richard, for giving us such a wonderful memory. We wouldn’t forget this.
