🍴Food Tech🍴

On Wednesday we were going to tech for the first time in term 2. The year 8s had food tech and the year 7s had wood tech. Our teacher for food tech was Mrs Tuipulotu. We made Oreo truffles covered with shredded coconuts and melted chocolate drizzled on top.

The first thing we had to do to make the oreo truffles was to crush the oreos and mix it together with coconut cream. Then you mix and mix until you see that the mixture is hard enough to roll into little balls. After you've rolled it into little balls you then have to cover it with shredded coconuts and pop it in the ice. While the truffles are in the ice you have to melt the chocolate and pour it on top of the truffles.

Our First Duffy Assembly

Today was our first Duffy assembly. Two men came over to our school to talk about how reading is important and how far it can take you. The two men names were Henry and Robert Rakete. Robert Rakete was the person that was talking to us. He asked us if our rooms were clean or dirty. Some people said that their rooms where dirty some people said that their rooms were clean. He told us that he had a son that was year at and was told to clean his room two times. So Robert Rakete went to his sons room and started to clean. When he was cleaning the book shelf he found his favorite book he liked when he was young. He lade back on his sons bed and began to read the book. While he was reading hes son came home and then he told him to clean the rest.

Tabloids Day

On Wednesday the 15th we had our very first tabloids with house colours! There were four teams altogether whero, kowhai, kakariki and kikorangi. I was in team kikorangi. Each team was split into 2 groups, that made 8 groups altogether. We had to get as many points as possible for our team.

One of my favorite tabloids activities was Mrs Holbricks one. She put us into two equal groups, we had to walk down to a hula hoop with a beanbag on our heads and if we dropped it,  we had to start all over again. When we got to the hula hoop we had to throw the beanbag into a bucket 5 to 6 feet away from the hula hoop. If we got it in we got a point,  if we did't get it in then we got no points. The group with the most points won. My group got the most in so we won.

Every Child Has Hopes & Dreams

Today after fitness Rooms 11 and 12 had two special visitors who came from the Everyday Theatre.
They came to our school to educate us about child helplines. The two visitors started off with a little play with six characters. T, Jack, Marea, Beca, Dave and Brian. Only two people acted out all the characters.

When the actressess finished acting out the story,we had different kinds of activityies to do. There was one activity when we had to get into a big donut and talk about the story. The second activity was not that cool but it was fun to play. We had to pair up and the shortest had to be Dave and the tallest had to be T. My partner was Isabell and I was the tallest. There was one activity when we had to pretend that we were pictures by standing still and not moving. My group had to act out when Dave first hit Marea.
