The Revealing Film

On Wednesday, it was time to reveal the year 8's Manaiakalani film on the huge screen in Sylvia Park. Most of the schools arrived at the Cinemas to watch the films that were created by Manaiakalani schools including Ruapotaka.

The film that was made by the year 8s, was about Rugby Values and how to become a champion player. It was loud and exciting at the same time but mostly the teachers were proud of their students for working together and helping each other.

The movie's main advice is that everyone can achieve more and BE BETTER THAN BEFORE!

Swimming Today . . . Oh No!!

It was a normal day on Friday, but what made it so special was that, the years 7 and 8 boys are going swimming. Yay!

We waited until it was past noon because that was the time that we go swimming. 5 minutes have passed. 10, 20, nearly 40 minutes have passed. We still didn't get the signal to get ready to go swimming.

Half past one. We were still at school. I finally received a message from a friend of mine, Timote. He said that we didn't have swimming today. I was disappointed. Really disappointed. Meafou said that we get the van from Tamaki College but today Tamaki had a game and they used the van.

It was the worst day ever!

End Of The Year Tests!

The end of the year tests is today! I was so nervous that I couldn't focus at all! Luckily we did our Maths test and our Spelling test. We had two minutes to finish each of our Basic Facts tests. It was very quiet so people can focus on their tests.

I was also really nervous about the marks because I didn't know if I would pass the tests. I looked for my name on the list and .... what a surprise! I went up 12 percent since my last test. I scored 245 correct out of 250! Yay! I am ready for the real test now!

Fitness Disaster!!

On Tuesday, we started our new fitness. Our fitness now includes relays which means we are organized in our dance groups and are split up into four corners.
There were four cones on the field. Each teammate had to run to each cone and pass the baton to our teammate there, but it ended up in a disaster! People didn't know what team they were in, they didn't know how to pass it to their teammate, and even one team gave their baton to another team member! It was outrageous! It was messy.

Mr. Reid said that if we didn't do it properly tomorrow, we had to do Ms. Riley's fitness which was circuits!

Term 4 Goals!!

On Thursday, the fourth day of term 4, we had to think about our goals we needed to do for this term. We had to complete four goals based on our subjects and one other that is our personal goal. My personal goal was to be fit so that I can come 1st, 2nd or 3rd in the interschool athletics. My reading goal is to use year 7 words so that I can expand my ideas to the group. I am trying to push my maths level up so for the maths goal I want to learn my time's tables so I can be ready for the hard exams this term. My writing goal is to be focused so I cannot be distracted by people around me.

I will try be achieve all my goals this term so that I can be better than before!

First Tech Of Term 4!!

On Wednesday, the year 7's went to the first Tech for Term 4.

Mr Pineda greeted us in front of Tamaki College. We went inside and stood up to say a prayer. Mr Pineda picked Katrina to say the prayer. " Dear God, I woke up this morning feeling great. I feel alive, I feel bleesed. I am sorry for my sins that I have done people. Amen."

Mr Pineda gave us a blank peice of paper  to do our 3-D box. The topic was based on food, so we had to either choose our favourite food or a T.V character. I chose Kakashi from Naruto Online. The reason why I picked Kakashi was because I owned a Chinese takeaway in my imagination.

I started to draw him when Mr Reid came inside to tell us we had to go to school again. I gave my drawing to Mr Pineda and stood in the year 7 line. We said "Thank you",  to Mr Pineda and went on our way.
