Guy Fawkes πŸŽ†πŸŽ‰ by Katrina

On the 5th of November most people celebrate Guy Fawkes day. On this people buy fireworks to light up with a lighter and watch the cool looking colours explode into the sky.  It is important to remember about Firework Safety:

1. Make sure children are supervised while holding a firework,

2. Always have a bucket of water near or next to you,

3. Never try to re-light a firework,

4. Make sure the fireworks are legal before buying them at the store.

Poem about the explosion that happened:

Remember Remember the fifth of November Gunpowder, treason plot we see no reason why gun powder treason should ever be forgot.

The Film Festival Is Soon! by Jack Daniel



The Manaiakalani Film Festival, is just around the corner. It will be on November 8th. The Film Festival is a local event for Manaiakalani schools like Ruapotaka School, Point England School and other schools around our Tamaki area. This is our School's third year making movies for the Festival.

For those who don't know what the Manaiakalani Film Festival is, it is where our Tamaki schools make short films and they get to showcas them at the Sylvia Park movie theatre. The Year 8's of Room 12 made a film, but I don't want to spoil it ....

Meafou and Vaimoana are our movie presenters. Personally, I think our movie will be one of the best this year, due to our amazing and entertaining actors.

End Of The Year Tests! by Saluselo

The end of the year tests are today! I was so nervous that I couldn't focus at all! Luckily we did our Maths test and our Spelling test. We had two minutes to finish each of our Basic Facts tests. It was very quiet so people can focus on their tests.

I was also really nervous for the marks because I didn't know if I would pass the tests. I looked for my name on the list and .... what a surprise! I went up 12 percent since my last test. I scored 245 correct out of 250! Yay! I am ready for the real test now!

First Day Of Term 4 by Tupouseinii

On the 16th of October 2017 term 4 had finally started. I was excited to be back at school especially because I missed my friends. Daily fitness was fun and Mrs Golder announced that it was Chinese language week. We learned a Chinese word which was 'HuānyΓ­ng' and it means 'welcome'.

Shortly after sports the bell rang and everyone walked to assembly in the multipurpose room. Mrs Vickers talked about the Tamaki College Gala and the prefects said some reminders like 'testing soon' and 'to go home straight away'. One student from each classroom received a Duffy book from our sponsor Terry Jarvis for 'caught being good'. When we were back in class, Room Twelve Group One reviewed this week's Homework.

I learned a lot of things on my first day back at school I can't wait until tomorrow.

✈ An Adventure To Melbourne ✈ by Timote

When the two weeks of holiday started all I could think of was going to Melbourne. Me and my sister (Ruth) quickly dashed to the car because we were a few minutes late. As we arrived at the airport we cautiously placed our luggage on the trolley because there were fragile items in there.

Later on we weighed the bags, waited patiently in line to check in and lastly filled the form. As me and my sister were walking through the gateway we said our farewells. 30 minutes later we were on a giant plane, I looked out of the clear window and all I could see were clouds.

I deiced to fall asleep so that I could have more energy to move. As we landed we quickly grabbed our luggage and headed out of the airport.  I was so exited to explore Melbourne.

Fitness Disaster!! by Saluselo

On Tuesday, we started our new fitness. Our fitness now includes relays. We are organised in our dance groups and we are split up into four corners.
There were four cones on the field. Each teammate had to run to each cone and pass the baton to their teammate there, but it ended up in a disaster! People didn't know what team they were in, they didn't know how to pass it to their teammate, and even one team gave their baton to another team member! It was outrageous! It was messy.

Mr Reid said that if we didn't do it properly tomorrow, we had to do Ms Riley's fitness which was circuits!
