This morning, two ladies from Game Masters came to Ruapotaka School to talk to Room 12 and Room 11. Their names were Vera and Kaitlin. They said they were the highest player in each game but they were stuck on one game. They had to act like a Dave (Dad), Marea (Mum), T (Son), Jake (T friend) and Bryian (Marea's boyfriend). It was fun because we had to complete activities and at the end of the session, we got a badge and a card that said "Game Masters."
This is the video that Mr Grundy show the Yr 7's. Mr Grundy's Video.

The Secret Life Of Pests
Pests are little animals, creatures and insects that are filthy, disgusting and smelly that carry diseases like rat-bite fever and weil's disease They do damage to people's farms and houses and they commonly eat your gardens and crops. Pests are dangerous creatures.
Rat bites can cause “Leptospirosis” which can lead to kidney damage, meningitis, liver failure, respiratory distress, and even death. It is spread by cattle, pigs, dogs, rats, and other animals which is really surprising.
If people get stung by a wasp, it doesn’t only sting people once but it can sting people a thousand times. A wasp is half the size of its close cousin the hornet. There is one special thing about wasps, it can’t die. It can only die if people kill it.
Spider bites are one of the most deadliest bites on earth. Some are non-poisonous and some are poisonous. The most poisonous spider in the whole world is the “11 Recluse Spider.” Spider bites can cause big lumps, itchiness and also kill people.
Female Horse flies are aggressive and can bite. It is dangerous to the human health. Female House flies can transfer blood from another animal or human to their feeding habit. Male horse flies do not drink blood but they feed on pollen. Female horse flies apparently are attracted to such things as moving and shiny surfaces so they actually live in houses.
Pests are creatures or animals that are dangerous to our environment. Pests damage things and destroy crops and houses. We do not like pests.

On Wednesday, we had tabloids. The whole school was split up in groups that were organised by Mrs Vickers and the prefects. (Mika, Meana, Min Zin, Saluselo, Katrina.) The groups are Kowhai, Kakariki, Whero and Kikorangi. In English, it is yellow, green, red, and blue. We had to work together to get points for our team. Meana's group got 35 points, Min, Zins group got 27 points, Mikas group got 35 points and my team got 37 points. It was the best day ever. It was great!

It wasn't our normal day where we start the assembly on Mondays. Instead, because it was Waitangi day we had to do our assembly on Tuesday. It was kinda weird having an assembly on Tuesday. It was our turn to host the syndicate assembly. It was fun. We had to dance to a music, and me, Mika and Lupe had to dance to "Hit The Quan."

Run, Jump, Throw.
The past 6 weeks, we had run jump throw with coach Declan. He is a coach from a company called “Kelly Sports.” The first two weeks, we had to learn how to get ready when you are participating in a race and how to run. The week after we had practiced how to run, we had to learn how to jump. In the last two weeks we learnt how to throw. These were my favourite sessions because there was a game called “Knock Down The Wicket.” The team that had most points, they got 10 minutes of play time on their Chromebooks. Three teams won, including my team. It was fun but the fun was over. I hope we do it again next year.
