Hamilton East Kauri Crew - Jump Jam Team

Huffing and puffing, very enjoyable and tons of fun. Until things started to get serious, and intense.
Miss Rasmussen started to put us into small groups, she wanted to know our names and what class we were in. Now we really started to feel the pressure!
We got called to go to her class, suddenly she announced the team, and some people were very lucky to get in. Most people thought it was hard, but that was nothing compared to the training!
The song started...
“Eye contact, strong arms, Keep in time with the music!”
“Now I have tried putting in a chant somewhere and it goes like this... H.E.S. Hamilton East, H.E.S Hamilton, and then it goes straight into I got bills, okay now everyone try.’’ Also it was hilarious watching her do the actions. We did this over and over till everyone got it right
“Yes the day everyone was looking forward to has finally come.” As we were practising Brett Fairweather suddenly walks in through the door. It was so magnificent and awesome. We all felt very lucky for him to be teaching us!

Watching the team before us nervously. Extremely excited but frightened. We take a deep breath, wished each other the best of luck…
Suddenly  a voice out of nowhere says “can we please welcome the Hamilton East Kauri crew.”
Okay, take one last gigantic deep breath  put a smile on our faces and walked on ready and proud!
