Our class photographers

Such excitement!  Room 10 now has its own tablet.  Saane and Meana did a fabulous job testing out the tablet's camera while we finished off our writing.

Writing about Kahurangi

After watching the Kahurangi Maori Dance Theatre, we chose how we wanted to write about this experience.  Here are some examples of our work.

Orana! Aloha! Talofa lava!  Kia orana!  Kia ora!

The Kahurangi Maori Dance Theatre visited Ruapotaka this afternoon.  The performers sang and danced their way from Tahiti to Aotearoa via Hawaii, Samoa and Rarotonga, sharing something of these cultures with us.

Everything is awesome!

Yesterday we hosted senior syndicate assembly, sharing some of the things we have learnt and created that relate to the XX Commonwealth Games.  As well as sharing our medal artwork and mascot designs, we all performed a mime of some of the Commonwealth sports ... lawn bowls, boxing, rugby, badminton, swimming, cycling, running ...  We all looked like champions and everything was awesome!  Thank you, Isabell, for taking our photographs.

Mates Way!

Thank you, Mr Calver, for spending time talking with some Room 10 students about friendship and role models.  They really enjoyed their sessions with you and are proud of their certificates.

The next Valerie Adams?

Yesterday we practised throwing the shot putt before the opening of the Room 9 and 10 team games next week.  How far did they go?
