" " And now we're on to the year five awards" Mr Burt announced. " I'm so excited" I squealed to Selena. It was the night of Pt England's 2009 Prize giving and I felt as if I was in Egypt, man it was hot!! " First of all the 100% attendance awards." Mr Burt declared" Maranda.......Aidan.......and..... Toreka." My heart thumped like crazy. "D-d-d-id Mr Burt j-j-just call my n-n-name?" I thought in my head. Everyone turned around straight away and started to stare.Thankfully my friends and family started to cheer. It made me feel a bit better. As I hastily walked down the red carpet, I tried to imagine I wasn't at prize giving, but at home walking down the drive way. It REALLY helped. As soon as I got my award my older brother (Tanielu) hung two lollies necklaces around my neck. I looked down and I couldn't believe my eyes. In front of me, hanging around my neck were the my most favourite chocolates in the whole wide world. Finally, I got to go and sit back down. But it didn't matter because I had to go back up again! This time, it as for getting distinction in my writing exams. I got another lolly necklace. My nana must have been busy. Prize giving was a lot of fun. I am looking forward to next year's one!
