Before Christmas break I was part of the Mulgrave grade 8 – 9 rugby team. We didn’t win a game during the season although we did come very close. Our team did fairly well during the season we played hard every game and tried our best.
Outside of school I belong to Capilano Rugby Club. We have games or practices every Sunday and our team is very successful. We have only lost very few games out of the many we have played so far. Our team is one of the strongest in the league. We have strong tacklers, strong runner, and are overall pretty good. I am the teams flyhalf and kicker. I am very content on how are team is doing so far this season.
This year in school basketball we have done pretty well. In the beginning of the season I was on the grade 8-9 A Team, but later dropped to the B Team because I wanted more playing time. I think hat dropping down to the B team was a good decision on my part because I think that since I will be able to get more playing time I will be able to improve and play more on the A team next year. On the B team we are doing very well. In our league we are winning quite a few of the games we are playing and the ones that we do lose are very close.
In the beginning of the year I was playing piano as I have been for the last 7 years. My playing was quite good,but I decided to quit playing piano after the Christmas break. I have stopped taking lessons although I will continue to play by myself and teach myself to play some songs by myself.
This year I began to play the bass guitar. I have now played it for a few months and have really enjoyed playing the bass guitar so farr. One of the favourite things that I enjoy doing with the bass guitar is improvising. My guitar teacher will give me the base notes for thebasss line and then I will make my own bass line and play along with songs. I really enjoy bass guitar right now and I hope I can continue playing bass in the future.
Welcome Back BBQ:
In the beginning of the year i volunteered and the Mulgrave Welcome Back BBQ. I helped direct traffic and help at some of the stations. This a great opportunity to grab early in the year, it’s also fun as well.
This year I have been picked to join M-SAC. I was very happy to be picked and so far all of the things that we have done in m-SAC have been great. I am part of the Talent Show committee and Christmas committee. Both of these activities have turned out great and I hope to be more involved in some more for this year.
Every year my family and I hand out sandwiches to the needy people in the downtown east side. This is something very good to do and it always makes you feel good inside after you have done it. I think this is a really great thing to do and I hope I can do this in years to come.
