Who Won? by Riiana

Friday last week was originally supposed to be the skip off but the rain had other plans. We were lucky enough to get all the Rooms displays done. Since we weren't able to do the skip off, we seniors did it on Monday which replaced fitness.

Congratulations to Agueer, Pupuke and Kotipi for placing in the Top 3!

If you'd like to see how it went down, here's the clip.

Printing At Tech by Julianne

On Wednesday we went by bus to Tamaki College for Technology. When we first arrived we had to finish off our name art, then we got to do our printing on t-shirts and jumpers. I had so much fun printing my name with Izabella. After we printed our names we then put matching gold turtles on our them. We left our final product to dry out. It was time to thank Mr Pineda then return back to school!💥

You Got To Be A Bookworm To Be Reading! by Henry

Everyone likes reading?! Well I do.

A person named Denzal discussed how he used to read. I said to my little but developing brain of mine, "Wait, every time I do a blog, everyone is reading it, which means I may be assisting little youngsters stretching their own vocabulary."

During his talk,  Denzal asked what our hobbies were and what we liked to do for pleasure. 

When he asked that question I was thinking of how I help kids extend their reading skills by just writing this post.

What do I do for pleasure besides playing video games all day? Writing. This made me think of what I want to be in the future. I want to be an author in 10 years' time. 

And no-one can stop YOU if you're DETERMINED to follow your dream.

🖥Changing Tech Groups🖥 by Tristan

Last week we changed our Tech groups. My group (Group A) started with Cooking with Mrs Tuipolotu, then Graphics with Mr Pineda and now we're doing Materials with Mr Grundy. The last couple of sessions have been phenomenal. I hope this class will be as wonderful as the last ones, and I reckon it will be because it's interesting and fun to do!

Daffodil Day by Storm

Today we had Daffodil Day.

Daffodil Day is to support the people who have cancer. We supported cancer by fundraising to help the people who research the disease find a cure for those people with cancer to maybe live for an extra  day or maybe even for the rest of their life.

Later we made paper daffodils and I asked Mrs Vickers how much money we made  today and she said, "$73." I was like WOW!
That is amazing that we are going to definitely give that to the people with cancer.
