Term 3 Reflection

This term it has been amazing because we have a lot of new students  that have come to our school. We are all getting along with each other and also learning new stuff and making new stuff.

We have been learning a lot of new things, like social justice and we have been learning what to do in a lockdown.  In Room 3 we have also been making PINATAS.  

What I liked most about making pinatas was when you are  doing your paper mache, you stick the paper on your balloon with glue and it feels so cold like you are touching a whole block of ice and it feels so goopy.

What I also learnt this term was a little bit of information about China and some new games from a special guest named, Nathan Grey who came for our Duffy Assembly.

Another part of term three, was getting my new books. I have been waiting for my books forever this term. The books I got were ‘The Return of the Vampire’ by Geronimo Stilton and Von Cacklefur  and ‘The Secret Garden’ by Frances Hodgson Burnett, which was such a sad story.

What I am looking forward to next term is the Manaiakalani Film Festival  because I get to see myself on the Xtreme big  screen. I always wanted to be on a film.

Kids for Kids Rehearsal

On a lovely magnificent day Room 3 was going to the Life Convention Centre for Kids for Kids. We went there because we had to practice our songs for the Kids for Kids Concert. There were three famous people there, it was Jackie Clarke, Nathan King and Chris from the Funky Monkeys.

We had to learn 17 songs for that day, we were all exhausted but it was really fun. Heaps of children went to audition for the soloist parts and for the ukulele part. They were all great singers and ukulele players, it was so amazing at the Life Convention Centre.

In my group there wasViliami, Misiotei, Ma’ata, Kanesini, Victoria, J.T. and Me( Rosrine). We all had parts Viliami was to be the Camera Operator, J.T.’s job was Director, Kanesini and Ma’ata part was acting as students, my part and Victoria’s part were actors and also Misiotei.

We did it by first storyboarding our filming and after that we figured out who was who then when we finished doing all of that we got to film. Our topic was SUCCESS.

Our group showed success through achieving our goals. We also had a song for it, it was called ‘Roar’ by Katy Perry, it is a nice song.

When our group finished filming the director sat with Miss G and edited and looked if there was any mistakes Just when the director and Miss G finished editing our film my group got to see our film, we were all proud of ourselves because we did a very great job. When everybody finished their film we all got to see it as one big massive film.

Rugby League Reflection

Last week we started a new kiwisport, it is league and our instructor’s name is Cuma. Cuma plays for the Junior Warriors and the Akarana Falcons.

It was my first time playing league in my whole life. I was really overjoyed to play league because I was getting taught by a professional league player. When we reached the field Cuma was standing there with dirty rugby balls waiting for us.

Cuma introduced himself then started with the warm ups of high knees and butt flicks.  We also practised skills like passing and catching before playing a short game of tag.  I am looking forward to our session next week.

St Pius X Feast Day

“Woohoo, the St Pius X Feast Day is today I can’t wait it’s gonna be so much fun” shouted on the top of my lungs.

On a beautiful magnificent sunny day the whole school was lining up to go to the church because it was the St Pius X Feast day and we were celebrating the St Pius X Feast day because St Pius X is the name of our school.

When we entered the Parish it was almost packed with people, we sat down in our seats waiting for the person who is doing the Introduction. When Leone finished reading the Introduction we started to sing the Entrance Hymn.

Just when the mass was about to finish we sang our last Hymn it was Credo Domine and when we finished the mass we went to the hall as fast as we could so we could celebrate with a banana cake. Genevieve gave out the banana cake and I ate it, it was so devine, the icing tasted like butter to me.

When we all finished eating our cake we all lined up to go to class. Mrs Deeney said that we could sit anywhere and we could go on anything. I went on this Dress Up game for girls and boys called Stardoll. Just before we finished having our Golden Time Mrs Deeney rang the tinkerbell and said “ Ok guys we are going to go soon for our performance”.

“Come on lets go, it is it time to go to the hall”. We all lined up outside, my heart was beating out of my chest I was so nervous. Just when we were going to enter the hall Mrs Williams stopped us, we were all wondering why she had to stopped us. Then Mrs Williams shouted “Sit down Room 3 you guys a being really noisy”, We waited for 2 minutes then she let us go in.

In the Meantime Sione Dale got the Microphone and tested out if it was working, it was working perfectly fine. The whole school settled down and Sione Dale announced if Room 1 and 2 could stand up and do their item, so they all did. Room 1 and 2’s item was called Do rai me, my little brother George and Annalise’s little sister Angelyn where the two soloists and they had to sing and the rest of the song with Room 1 and 2 repeating after George and Angelyn. Room 1 and 2 finished their item and we all gave them a round of applause. I was so happy of my brother George singing and Annalise was proud of her little sister Angelyn.

“Give another round of applause to Room 1 and 2 again” Catherine announced, “Give a round of applause to Room 4, they are singing Just a single candle”, Catherine explained.

“YAY YAY”, The whole school shouted. Genevieve stood up and went and grabbed the microphone, Genevieve announced “Can Room 3 please stand up and do their two items”, and we went straight away and stood where we had to stand. Our items where ‘Something in the water’ by Brooke Fraser and ‘Haere mai’. The two soloists for our songs were Tokilupe and Ezra. We finished our turn and it was Room 6 and 7’s turn then we went straight to class to have big lunch.

Just when we finished having big lunch we went to the hall again for the third time because a special guest was coming her name was Linda Filimoehala she was Mrs Logan’s daughter friend from university she came with a euphonium it looked like a saxaphone.
