Nervous times

Read how Fotu was feeling on the day of the test.

Star Reading Test

Room 12 and Room 11 students all had to do the Star Reading Test. We were all very scared because we thought we were going to fail the Test.

Firstly Mrs Golder said, “Five more minutes to go until the test begins.”
Then the test began and I was so nervous and I was sweating like a dog. Then it was time to read the question and answer it. The Star test is about understanding the meaning of the word that you are reading.

Then the test was over and I was very relieved and happy that we were finished with the reading test.

We were all thinking that we were going to fail the test and I was so worried that I might get the lowest score out of my whole class. Then when Mrs Golder called out our score, I was very proud of myself. 
When I got home I told my parents what had happened and they were very proud too.

Touch Rugby by Elizabeth

Last week on Thursday the 12th of November 2015 all senior classes from the senior syndicate had a 45 minute touch rugby lesson. As we waited until the clock  hit 11:45 we made our way outside on the field right in front of all the junior classes.

Finally it was our turn. Trevor was our coach and he was really qualified. He seemed to look like he was in his early 50’s but despite his age he could still run around, have fun and keep fit.

The whole 45 minutes was full of enjoyment and fun. We played activities. Answered questions. Learnt how to play properly and had relay races. My favourite activity was when we all lined up in a circle and we had to pass the ball clockwise around as fast as we could. If we dropped the ball or threw it improperly we were declared disqualified .

We had two rounds and luckily for me I made it into the top five. I really enjoyed the entire lesson and appreciated that Trevor taught us. I’m really looking forward to the next time we have another lesson this Thursday. Thanks again Trevor!

First Time Ever Poetry Recital by Florida

On Friday the 6th, we had a Poetry Recital and parents were invited. It started off with Room 1 and  all the way to Room 12.
Once Ofa had announced, "Can we please have the Room 12 finalists." my stomach just felt like it had butterflies in it. While Elizabeth and I walked to the front and stood in our places, people were looking at me. It was  so scary that I couldn't speak at all but I had to. 
At the end teachers  presented our certificates to us and we had a photo with the other finalists.

You Can Teach Old Dogs New Tricks! by Damien

Last week, my teacher, Mrs Golder, was having trouble updating her Google Forms. It was so she could see if we were sending friendly comments to the other classes.

She asked me, being the IT guy and stuff, if I could help her. Eventually I did! She thanked me and I was awarded with a Principal's Award. You can check out what I did Here
