Athletes Day

On Tuesday it was Athletics day.  All classes gathered onto the top field while the parents observed. As Mr Reid said, " Go!" I sprinted as fast as i could. It felt like I was running as fast as a cheetah. Everyone ran their hardest and it was a pleasure to be apart of it.  There were 4 events happening 400m, 200m, 100m and lastly relays. 

Seeing Room 1 to 7 run was amazing. Every race I competed in, I came 3rd place. In my mind I was so excited to compete against Pate and Dakbai because we were the top 3 runners in Room 12. It was fun challenging them.

🌦Strange Weather🌦

Today Ruapotaka school experienced strange weather, During maths, I heard unusual sounds from outside. I ignored it so that I could carry on with my work. After morning tea it was reading time, and all of a sudden I started to shiver because of the cold breeze coming from outside. Mrs Golder told Jack to close one of the windows to avoid the cold. The weather went from sunny, to 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 a special event. The special event was the Manaiakalani Film Festival. It was an event where schools had been busy creating a movie. It was held at Sylvia Park. The Yr 8's  made a short film, and it was shown in the theatre room.

Our movies was about being a good player when it comes to sport. Everyone had to be respectful to the referee and their opponents. We also had to work hard and how to become a good role model. Vaimoana and Meafou were our presenters. Our movie 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 currently is 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 was Lupe, Frank, Vika, Teremoana, Jessica and Tane. When my teammate arrived at the fourth cone and passed the baton to me, I had to quickly run to the end so that our team could finish. On the 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.
