On Friday 9 February we had a walkathon at school. The Grade 0, 1 and 2 girls had to walk around the school 21 times. I was walking with Hannah. After the walkathon I got treats and a medal. My dad came to walk for me. The theme was ‘Mad Hatters’. We raised funds. The best part was when we got ice cream.
I was so excited because today was the ninth of February and that meant that it was the walkathon and my hat was waiting on the kitchen counter. I took it and went to school. I walked 21 laps. At the end I had treats, they were a medal, an ice-cream and a cupcake. The Grade two’s were the oldest, only Grade 0, 1 and 2 were allowed to walk, the Grade 3, 4, 5, 6 had to swim. The theme was ‘Mad Hatters’. It was about fundraising but I think it was about having fun! My hat was a top hat, it was made out of paper. It was at my school. Me and Hala were together the whole time. I held Hala’s hand, it was lots of fun.

I had a tall hat that I carried most of the way. I walked with Charlotte in Grade 0. Charlotte’s hat was shoter then my hat. Her hat was easier to wear. We finished at the saym time. I was with Charlotte for the rest of the walk-a-then and then we had drac (break).
