Orienteering

Yesterday was a terrific day for orienteering. Even though the weather didn't turn out as I expected I still enjoyed it anyway. Once I collected my piece of paper and map I set off looking for controls. It was so tiring for me because I was running from one control to another. As I was running I felt a slight bit of chill so that slowed me down. As soon as I finished I casually made my way to Mr Leon and waited for the rest of my class mates to finish their courses.

Our Pasifika Study Performance

Today at our special assembly every class performed an item based on Tonga and Samoa. Every class had different performances. Room 1 and 4 performed a traditional Samoan dance called a 'Sāsā'. Followed by Room 5 who presented a song called 'Le Aute'. The most interesting performance was Room 6's. They performed a Catwalk where the students were partnered with each other into girl with a boy. Some of the girls were wearing a puletaha(Tongan), some were wearing a puleetasi(Samoan). The boys were wearing a sote and a tupenu tide with a gafa. 

We sang a song called 'How Far I'll Go' from the movie Moana. I was so nerves that I started to stare at the floor throughout the whole song. I enjoyed every bit from the beginning to the end.

The First Day Back

Our 2 weeks holiday has unfortunately ended and we are back at school. We started off with running for our daily fitness at 8:55 am. It was tiring because it was our first day back at school. But it was worth it because we can become fitter and fitter every day. After we finished fitness we organised our lunch time duties, bell monitor and staff room duties. We then moved on to our maths followed by reading. Straight after lunch we had or first school assembly for term 3. We finished off our day with blogging and cloze reading.

Room 10's Syndicate Assembly


Yesterday after lunch we had to go to the multipurpose room for our syndicate assembly. It was Room 10's turn to host. They had two children from each class who had to go up and answer questions about Tonga and Samoa and they were being quizzed on their knowledge  of Pasifika studys. Mika and Lupe went up to represent Room 12 and Tupouseini and Izabella were representing Room 11. Malia and Liza represented Room 10 and Sione and Kotipi represented Room 9. Mika and Lupe showed a lot of factual knowledge while Room 11 were trying their hardest to answer most of the questions.

🥛 National Milk Day 🥛


Today is a odd but exciting day for for me it's National Milk Day! Since it's National Milk Day our teacher decided to take photos of all of us drinking our milk. We are so lucky to have milk at school. We get milk from the Fonterra Factory. Sometimes I don't like milk but I drink it because its very good for our muscles, bones, and our health. We should always drink milk.

🍴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.
