Welcome Home- 2016 Paralympic Team by Joel

On Friday, the last day of term 3, we went to the Millennium Institute of Sport on the North Shore. We went there to celebrate the welcome home to the Paralympic team of New Zealand. First we went in the school van to get there. We went over the Auckland Harbor Bridge to the North Shore. When we got there we sat on the blue mat. I saw the news people there with video cameras. First Peter Williams interviewed the athletes. We were holding up posters and New Zealand flags and also wearing golden crowns. After that we met some of the athletes. I met Sophie Pascoe, Liam Malone, Anna Grimaldi and Holly Robinson. We also took selfies with them. My favorite athlete was Sophie Pascoe. Then we went back to the van and went to Pakuranga Mall and had BK for lunch. After that we went back to school. When I went home, I saw us on the news. I was feeling excited.
