In the afternoons Rooms 12 and 11 go outside for skipping sessions. We do all sorts of things, for example,  skipping forwards, backwards, side to side, practising a display and lastly a skip off.

 Everyone grabs a rope and lines up into three rows. Mr Reid stands in the  front giving us instructions while Mrs Golder is videoing us. 

In my skipping group there are Lupe, Mika, Pate, Saluselo, Dakbai and lastly me. We were not allowed to be in groups with all boys and all girls.

🏃Daily Fitness🏃

We are back at school from the long weekend. We are running for daily fitness. The seniors had to run around the  block for at least 10 minutes. Lupe, Mika, Min Zin and me decided to take it slow and jog together.

I'm excited to come back to school and study new learning.

🥛National Milk Day🥛

Today is National Milk Day. It is celebrated every year on June the first. It started in 2001.

Ruapotaka has been getting their milk from Fonterra. Rooms 11 and 12 drink their milk every week.

We drink milk every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Some schools don't have milk so we are lucky to be one of the Fonterra Milk schools.

Soccer Team⚽⚽

my_picture.pngThe day has finally come. After all the hard training and exercise, I have finally made it in the Inter-School Soccer Team. Mr Reid has chosen twelve fit, hard working students to join the 2017 Ruapotaka soccer crew.

The reason why some people were chosen was because they had pushed themselves very hard to make it into the team.

Tomorrow morning, the soccer team is going off to Point England Reserve to battle other schools and try and earn their way up to the top. I can't wait for tomorrow!!

Back To Tech

On Wednesday we were  back to school and the year 8s are doing cooking for Tech. Our teacher is Mrs Tuipulotu. We made chocolate balls covered in coconut and chocolate. The ingredients were oreos, coconut, condensed milk and chocolate.
Firstly we had to break the oreos into little pieces, then put them in a bowl. Later on we added the coconut and poured the condensed milk. After all the ingredients were mixed in we had to make them into balls. Then we had to put them in the fridge carefully for a few hours. Next everyone had to melt lots of chocolate chips for about two long minutes. When that was all finished we grabbed the cold truffles and the hot chocolate so that we can combine them altogether.

Anzac Ceremony

On Thursday, there was an exciting assembly. During the holidays there were two events, Easter Day and Anzac Day. Anzac Day is a time where people remember the soldiers who went to war and made New Zealand peaceful. At school we had our own special ceremony, firstly we sang the national anthem. After that three people from different classes were called up and preformed a poem. Lastly we stood up and gave a moment of silence for a minute.
