Parakai Pools

On a hot sunny day I was so relieved that my family and I were going to parakai springs. We set off on our two hour journey.

As soon as we reached our destination i was pleased to see plenty of people having fun. I had just put down our bags when suddenly I heard my name. I turned around and there was Judah, a boy from our school, so I said, "Hi" and carried on with what I was doing.

“Finally I can go for a swim," I said. As soon as I hit the water I felt refreshed like I had been drinking lots of cola. After a long time in the pool I decided to go to the hydro slide. "3 2 1 GO!". I slid off like a car spinning out of control. My speed that I was going at was terrific. “Here’s the end I said”. I had been spat out from the hydra slide crashing into the pool.

So, our trip to Parakai Pools involved lots of fun and plenty of laughter.

  2. Kia ora Casey. This is a pretty good recount. If I went through the recount checklist I think most boxes would be ticked. I loved the way you explained your Hydro slide experience - it was very descriptive and I could imagine you spinning out of control and being spat out the other end. Well done. Next step is time management, working within a given timeframe. You can do it!

  3. Hi Casey ... I really enjoyed reading this story, we sure did have lots of fun and laughter at Parakai. Awesome work, keep it up!
