Congratulations to Tyrone Dorrell, Sam McCudden, Daniel Lavery and James Vassallo on your excellent Small Moment Writing pieces completed at the recent year 7 Immersion Day.  Outstanding work boys.

Everyone turned their eyes onto us. Dylan was about to sit on our throne which took about half an hour to make. With a nervous glance he slowly sat, we knew what was about to happen. My dreams of it staying Grand crumbled just like the throne. The feeling of disappointment imbedded into my chest because I didn’t think we were going to go out like this. A sudden sense of pride swooped through me  because what we made did actually look like a throne; Even though it didn’t act like one. If I had to take one thing from that moment I would take even though we did fail, we did achieve more than we could have  hope for because we worked together to do the best we could.

We scramble to put our cardboard chair together whilst Mrs. Murdoch is mid-way through her sentence of saying “5 minutes left”. My group is working to get those chocolates that were promised to the winners. “3 minutes left”, we panic and do our best to finish the chair on time. Every chair has failed so far on the sitting test and then comes our opportunity to win the challenge, but as soon as I sat on the chair, I noticed something. One of the support legs had folded and before I could blink the chair crumbled and our chance of winning the chocolates were crushed. Even though our chances were crushed, I learnt how important teamwork is when trying to achieve goals.

“TIME!” called the teacher. The pressure to get the throne finished was instantly lifted by that one word… but only for a few seconds as I realized it still had to be judged. When the judges came to our throne we realized it was too tall. I knew our design was strong, but I didn’t know if it was strong enough for Tom, the heaviest person in our group, who was the only one tall enough to sit on our throne. Slowly Tom put his weight on to the throne. I felt a sigh of release as the throne held Toms weight but not for long as right before my eyes, crumpled the throne and our chances of winning. The judges moved on without saying a word.
