Madd Messenger

Patia Wilson, who is an accomplished artist, drew for Ruapotaka School a picture of Superman in under 7 minutes. He used pastels and mainly the colours dark blue, light blue, red, yellow, black and cream on a pitch black canvas. He used smudging in the end and autographed it in deep purple.

Madd Messenger

On Wednesday the 26 of November we were given the chance to experience a life long lesson thanks to Mr Calver and our principal Mrs Vickers.  A group called “ MADD Messenger” made of 2 people, Caroline and Petia, came to our school and talked to the year 7 and 8's about being confident about who we are.

The show included Music, Art, Drama and Dance. The show made us acknowledge the fact that most people change who they are; to become someone they want to be. That nowadays we hide things from others. Instead we should encourage and motivate people around us to be who they are, because we are all one of a kind and unique in a way.

Petia amazed us, made us laugh and smile too by showing us his artistic, musical and acting skills. He  drew Superman and took a class photo with both year 7's and 8's.

In the end we all left the Multipurpose Room knowing that we are special in a way and there’s not another person who is like us.
