St Kents At Ruapotaka School!

On Monday morning, students from St Kents came to do sports coaching at our school and also to succeed in their test that they were having. If some of them don't pass their tests, they would have to come back to Ruapotaka School another day and resit their test again.

We were split up into 3 groups so there were group 1, group 2 and group 3. I was in group 3.

We were with two rugby students. Our activity was ripper tag. We were split again in two groups. Ripper tag was difficult because the two groups were in two middle-sized squares. If you go out of the square, one of the teachers will take away one or more tags from you, depending on how long you are outside of the square.

The whistle went and the rugby students brought everyone together to see who got the most tags out the two groups. I had a total of 6 tags and the other person from the another group had a total of 4. It was fun!

🥇Duffy Award!!🥇

 On Monday, we had a whole school assembly as usual. One of the items that occur is when Mrs Vickers gives out the Duffy books and certificate to the pupils who have been doing well in their reading, writing or other subjects.

She called out the room numbers one by one: 9, 10,11 and 12. It was their turn to receive the Duffy books. The teachers had a good think about who they were going to chose. Finally,  Mr Reid picked Mary and Mrs Golder picked Saluselo which is me because I did well in my reading. I moved up a reading group as well as my reading level.

When I went up to get my award, I felt nervous. This is my 5th Duffy book award. Afterwards, Mrs Vickers congratulated me by shaking my hand and gave me a Spirit Animals book which is my favourite book.

When I looked at my book, I thought to myself, 'now I have two books like these.' I was proud of myself for doing well!

National Milk Day!!

Today is National Milk Day and today we get to drink our milk at morning tea. Meana was taking photos of us drinking our milk. 

It is good to drink milk because it is good for our teeth and our health. I love to drink it at school and every one else. 

Ruapotaka School is grateful that we are one of the schools in New Zealand to have milk.
