🌦Strange Weather🌦

Today Ruapotaka school experienced strange weather, During maths\ I heard unusual sounds from outside. I ignored it so that I could do my work. After morning tea it was reading time, all of a sudden I started to shiver because of the cold breeze coming from outside. Mrs Golder told Jack to close the window to avoid the cold. The weather went from sunny, cloudy then lastly rainy. Tomorrow I hope to see bright colours so I can have fun outside.

🎥Revealing Our Film🎥

On Wednesday morning the entire Ruapotaka School were very excited for an special event. The special event was the Manaiakalani Film Festival. Manaiakalani Film Festival was an event were schools had been creative to create a movie. It was held at Sylvia Park, the Yr 8's  made a short film, so that it could represent Room 12.

Our movies was about being a good player went it comes to sport. Everyone had to be respectful to the referee and the opponents. We also had to work hard and how to become a good role model. Vaimoana and Meafou was our presenter for Room 12. Our movies was the best in my opinion because it shows everyone how to become a successful rugby player.

School Assembly

On Monday the entire school had quietly walked to the multipurpose room like we always do. Mrs Vickers talked about making sure you had someone above 18 years old and being careful during Halloween. She also explained about being good because the following week everyone would be going to the Manaiakalani Film Festival, only if everyone behaves.

A few minutes later Mrs Vickers returned to her office and one by one each class left to their classroom so that they could study hard for upcoming tests.

Daily Fitness

Every week the seniors had to get organised into their dancing groups. Our fitness is currently relays. Mr Reid gave everyone a number between 1 and 4, later on we had to go to our station. Once we arrived four students from each groups had to line up in a row, so that the next runner can pass the baton on.

In my team it was Lupe, Frank, Vika, Teremoana, Jessica and Tane. When my teammate arrived at the forth cone and pasted the baton to me, I had to quickly run to the end so that our team could finish. Next rotation the next group had to do exactly the same thing as we did.

When relays finished everyone returned to class.

✈ An Adventure To Melbourne ✈

When the two weeks of holiday started all I could think of was going to Melbourne. Me and my sister (Ruth) quickly dashed to the car because we were a few minutes late. As we arrived at the airport we cautiously placed our luggage on the trolley because there were fragile items in there.

Later on we weighed the bags, waited patiently in line to check in and lastly filled the form. As me and my sister were walking through the gateway we said our farewells. 30 minutes later we were on a giant plane, I looked out of the clear window and all I could see were clouds.

I deiced to fall asleep so that I could have more energy to move. As we landed we quickly grabbed our luggage and headed out of the airport.  I was so exited to explore Melbourne.

🏃Cross Country🏃

This week the senior block have been practising cross country. Right after a 5 minute circuit pratice, everyone cautiously dashed out of the school grounds and ran on the streets. We had to quickly run for at least three times, but for the fast runners they had to run for four laps.

Dakbai and I quickly dodged people left and right so that we could complete four laps. As we came to the last lap, Dakbai and me deiced to bolt to the end. Coming into school I saw many puffed and sweaty people.

When we stopped Dakbai and I were exhausted as ran out of energy, When it was time to go back to class Ms Riley told the senior block that me and Dakbai had completed 4 laps in nine minutes.

For the first time I did well.

On Tuesday we had orienteering, Mr Leon had gently placed down controls all around the school. Orienteering is all about knowing how to read maps so that you can get to specific places. Mr Leon presented us with a piece of paper. There were four sections to this orienteering, I left with full speed running as fast as I could.

I arrived at my first destination and I was already exhausted, sadly I had no time to rest as I quickly had to  dash  to the second control. When I reached it I thought to myself will it be too challenging for me? As I was sprinting pass people I decided to stop, turn around and help my classmates.

Jack and Azahar were standing at the rugby post confused about where to go next. So I ran over to them and directed them to the right place. At the end me, Jack and Azahar ran together to finish off the task we were assigned to do.
