This time, I would like to tell you about an event that happened at my school.
Last Saturday, on the 25th of March 2017, my school held a sporting event called Dewa Athena at Lapangan Bali. It is an annual competitive sporting event between classes. Everyone has to participate in at least one of the activities. There were many sports competition, starting from badminton, soccer, basketball, dodge ball, volley, tug of war, estafet, gobak sodor, and many more.
The opening ceremony for the event started at half past seven in the morning. Then, each class attended their respective sports category according to their scheduled time. My class, X Science 3, started with gobak sodor, which is a traditional sport game that includes two teams and ropes to mark the territory of each team. The objective of the game is to get past the other team without getting touched by them. For this game, my class lost. After gobak sodor, it was time for the boy’s basketball competition, but unfortunately we lost this one aswell.
Sadly, I didn’t attend the whole event because at 9 a.m. I had to practice angklung at school. Because of this, I left Lapangan Bali right after the boy’s basketball competition, collected my angklung, and gathered at XII Science 5 class. My day continued just like any other practice day, which consists of song practices and flow practice. The reason why it was very important that we had to attend practice that Saturday was because it was the second last evaluation before our concert.
I was pretty disappointed that I didn’t get to see my class fight their way to the finals. I was also sad because I couldn’t be there to support my teammates. However, I realized that no matter how hard I tried, I could never attend both at the same time. I had to choose between either one, and even though I didn’t attend the first day of Dewa Athena, I can support my class on the second day which will be held the following Saturday.
