My throat is dry and there is a slight ringing in my ear. I'm covered in face paint from head to toe. Crazy Sports Day has arrived. Every year on this day, the girls at my school take part in inter-house competitions. Students are divided into houses named after an important figure in the school's history. On Crazy Sports Day, they are competing for house points and the Cadbury Bell Cup. Winning this cup gives the champions the right to show off about being better than everyone else. It's different from a regular sports day: we take part in activities like spinning hula hoops and cheerleading contests, and we dress in crazy costumes. Creating original costumes is an important part of the competition. Bright pink tube tops are paired with skirts that are so wide they barely fit through the door. The school corridors get a makeover, too: there is so much colour everywhere, it's as if Picasso painted the walls. At 10.30am, the bell rings and everyone runs off to 'Hit the Hag', the ultimate water fight. There is loud music coming from the speakers, and everybody is screaming as they get soaked. But there's something special about seeing so much enthusiasm that you don't mind the fact you won't have a voice tomorrow.
