Start of work 2019!

2019 has begun and I am really excited be a year 8. Adjusting to our new classmates will be quite difficult, but i'm still gonna try my best. Ruapotaka had their first school assembly with the new principal, Mrs Hamilton. She's a great principal and has a positive attitude for 2019. This year now that i'm a year 8 I will be having more responsibilities, like cleaning the staffroom and ringing the bell. I am really looking forward to 2019, It's going to be a great year.

Special Assembly ツ

This Monday morning we had a special assembly. The year 4's were awarded special prizes for having a great attitude towards learning.

They have received a 40 dollar deposit towards they're chromebooks for next year 2019. The overall winner was Aleki. Mrs Samuel-Latu has given him a new uniform, 40 dollar deposit for his chromebook and a box of favourites.

Joy, Solomene, Pita and Aleki were acknowledged for their dedication and hard work towards learning.

Mrs Samuel-Latu and her sisters have been coming for the past 8 years to present these awards. Sadly this is the last time we will be having this type of assembly for our year 4's.

I hope the winners will continue their hard work and dedication in the future.

Swimming At Otahuhu Pools 🌊

This weekend me and my friends went to the pools in Otahuhu, because it was really hot.We all got changed into our togs that felt really damp, which made me feel colder. I jumped in the pool and I felt a nice relief of water, till my friends splashed me...

That was a beginning of a water fight, or should I call it water war! My friends splitted into teams and started splashing water like we were Goku. If I was gonna get splashed again I would've went ballistic on them.(Tbh)

Sadly our water war had to come to an end, the pools were closing. We got changed and walked out the pools dramatically, hoping to come back again.

Wednesday was our last day cooking with Mrs Tuipulotu. Our tech group made sausages with cheese and chips, my partner was Liza. She's an amazing cook!

Step 1 - The first thing we had to do was slice the 4 sausages in half.

Step 2 - After that we put cheese and tomatoes on the sliced sausages. If it wasn't enough we had to top up the cheese and tomatoes.

Step 3 - Bake for ten minutes with the chips in the oven as well.

Step 4 - Serve with tomato sauce and enjoy.

Hope it's as extraordinary as other people say.
