Next Two Races Were Great!

I was really happy with my next two races. I entered a time of 126.05 for my long free and raced 126.85. I was really happy with this because it is a 50m pool! My afternoon breast stroke race I entered a 52.81 and raced 51.29.Our family had a picture taken today with a koala bear. Flat Stanely had his picture taken at the Olympic pool and the running track at Olympic Park today. I hope classes are going well. Tomorrow we are going to the Blue Mountains and we will be in caves like the ones you are reading about.
Have a great day,
Mrs. Coutts

On Friday January 23 the Gr. 3 class was a part of an attempt
to break the record for the, 'Most Children Reading with an Adult,
Multiple Locations' . The old record was @79,000 they estimate
our new total to be 190,000. Wow big numbers!!!

Mr. Miller helped to read the 5 Robert Munsch

Thank you to all of the other readers and helpers.
