Overslept today despite going to bed at 8.00 pm the night before. I felt horrendously sick in the night and this only started to improve around midday. I can’t find anyone in school and from the sound of it and from the girls’ attire I assume it’s Sports Day – and after speaking to some girls I find out it is a two-day event and the girls are being scouted for the regionals. I admire them for competing in this heat – some girls had to be carried off by their team-mates when their races finished due to sheer exhaustion. As far as I can see there are seven houses and the girls are all extremely proud of their own house.
