Culture Groups!

So this year on term 4, we are now starting to practice our culture group. Which are Samoan, Tonga, Maori and Cook Islands. Around week 5 last term the Tongan culture groups started before all the other groups. But this term the Samoan and Maori culture groups are going to start around week 4 or 6. For culture groups mostly some of Rm 12 and 11 gets nervous and confused. So this year I hope it goes really well!

Manaiakalani film fest.

Yesterday around 12:04 p.m. we were all lucky to take a bus to Sylvia park, to go and watch all the Manaiakalani school films at the Hoyts. Ones we arrived inside the cinema we all waited quietly for about 5 minutes for all the schools to arrive. Most of Manaiakalani films were interesting and really creative. I was completely nervous for our movie to begin. Overall I had a great time watching all the Manaiakalani movies!

      Enjoy watching our Movie!

Today we went to tech and once we arrived there I knew that we were about to do a new technology. Which was making stuff out of glass, in Mr Grundy work shop. We were about to make our objects, before that Mr Grundy showed all of us an video of how to start off drawing our designs. Before we were about to start, Mr Grundy warned all of us lots of rules before we start.

First Day of Tech Term 4

On the first day of tech, we went to Mr Grundy work shop to finish off our glass that we made last term. Once we arrived, Mr Grundy welcome us all into his work shop. We all went to grab our glass board which had our work on top. So all of us had to go to Mr Grundy's work table, because Mr Grundy is about to show us all the steps. We had a fun time back at tech.

Practicing Cross Country.

This week we started practicing Cross Country on Monday to Friday every week for our daily fitness in the morning. Every morning we have to run two laps around the streets, but for the Yr 8 and Yr 7 finals we have to run about three to four laps around. Today was our first time running which we did really well for the first day, but it was tiring. I hope we get better than before.

Yesterday after morning tea,  was exited to go orienteering to do a fun activity with the whole room 12. After 20 minutes of play it was time to do orienteering, everyone line up to be given each a clip card and a map. When it was time for me to start I looked confused so I had to tell Meana to help me. When I was done with the first course which was course 2, I moved on to the next course until it finished. It was tiring but fun!!

Paper Mache

Yesterday between morning tea, we went to tech. after 3 mins, we arrive to Tamaki collage then we all head to graphics. Then we started to get the equipment all ready. Mr Pineda gave us all a balloon each to make our Mache. Once we left our Mache to get dry for about one week an a half.  We came back to technology to check if our Mache was dry. Most of our Mache was dry and wasn't, so I decided to add more layers of glue and paper. So I had to leave my Mache for another week to dry.
