The House Winner Is...

Throughout the year the four houses (Whero, Kakariki, Kowhai, and Kikorangi) have been aiming to be the winners of each term. The way you gained points was by doing something good and the teachers or prefects would award the students.

The points from each term were added up to figure out the winner of the year. Yesterday we found out who that winner was.
It was Kikorangi! We received a house winner trophy and a round of applause. Kikorangi won with 1,281 points.

What Happened On Thursday?

Since us Year 7's and 8's couldn't do our athletics on Wednesday, we did it on Thursday morning. We only did 100 meters which I placed fourth in.

Later that morning, around 10:30, we held a mini powhiri for our next year principal, Mrs Hamilton. Katrina did the karanga (calling) while the rest of us started doing the haka. After that was done we sat down, listened to Saluselo speak, then Mrs Vickers, and then Mrs Hamilton.

Many students and teachers shed a few tears during the powhiri. It has been quite a journey but it

One Week Left

I can't believe that next week will be the last week that we'll be going to Tech this year. Luckily I managed to finish my design this session along with most of my workbook. All I had to do was wet my 1,200 grit then start polishing the musical note.

How Boring

Nothing exciting happened to me over the weekend. I spent Saturday and Sunday watching World Trigger and some YouTube videos. Occasionally I'd read some online stories or spend a few minutes on Pinterest.

Pewter Casting?

My Tech group have been doing pewter casting with Mr. Grundy. I am currently up to the last step of sandpapering my design and then it'll be complete.

First, we had to choose four recipients and four design concepts for each person. I have decided on making a musical note pendant for Friend 2.

100 Years Already?

This weekend on Sunday on the 11th hour, it will be Armistice Day. It will have been 100 years when peace was acquired.

Our class has gotten into groups and researched about Armistice Day to present at assembly.  My group (Mary, Konazy, and Solomone) have had fun designing this slideshow and researching, merely because we've never heard about this day before.

The Day We Become Stars

On Wednesday 7 our films will be aired at the Sylvia Hoyts cinema, which was today. This year we shared a theater with Te Kura Kaupapa Maori o Puau Te Moananui a Kiwa.

Even though we finished filming last term, it wasn't until today that I saw our film. I'm really amazed at how it came out. Out of all the schools there, I had a great laugh at Point England's Fairytale News.
