The Cornwall School Games
Today is the day of the big game,
Winning all the way is our aim,
Hoping not to take the path of shame,
We are not going to be lame,
Everyone is feeling insane,
Doing something everyone loves,
Doing something no-one else dared,
All our practices have led up to today,
We’ll all make a difference in every way.
Keeping the ball when we have it,
Getting it when we don’t.
Shooting for the goal- all the time!
Do it for Wadebridge, do it for Penair,
Do it for the hot lads everywhere.
Massages and plasters, everything hurts,
As you push yourself for the final spurts,
Cheering spectators make a deafening noise,
As you push yourself for that winning poise
On this day for us all to enjoy.
Written by Anna Covey, Richard Lander School, inspired by quotes from the competitors
So many great people
All on stage, in one small city.
But the person with the biggest cheer?
The local organiser committee!
But the friends you’re going to make and meet
On a journey such as today.
Will be with us forever…
Or at least in Newquay they will stay!
A big cheer for the Opening Ceremony!
To rowing …
The shrieks echoing with practice
And competitors shaking the machines.
The blood rushes, the face flushes
Hard elbows and iridescent sweat at the seams
To dance …
The energy is underlined
By every crease, every strain on a face.
So to the dance crews
I scream like everyone else
Cause in my dreams, some of those dance moves
I couldn’t trace.
To Volleyball …
Which seems to attract great girls
Who put in blood, sweat and tears – literally!
And though wind doesn’t help the game
Everyone happily takes their place – fittingly.
And now here I am
After a great day, up on stage!
So all I can say is, lucky it was good weather!
And a big Cheer for the Cornwall School Games
