Welcoming Mrs Hamilton To Ruapotaka School

 On Thursday 29th of November 2018 we had a powhiri for the new principle of Ruapotaka School for 2019. First Katrina started off with a Karanga. Then when the new principle was in we started singing a song called "E Hara" then we all sat down and then Mrs Vickers stood up to say a speech, most of us teared up because Mrs Vickers has been teaching at Ruapotaka School for 27 years!!. Then... we sang more songs then it was finally time for Mrs Hamilton to introduce her self!.

Printing At Tech

On Wednesday we went by bus to Tamaki College for Technology. When we first arrived we had to finish off our name art, then we got to do our printing on t-shirts and jumpers. I had so much fun printing my name with Izabella. After we printed our names we then put matching gold turtles on our them. We left our final product to dry out. It was time to thank Mr Pineda then return back to school!💥

Malo E Lelei as you all know it is Tongan language week and we are all dressed in Tongan costumes. Izabella and I have planned to bring Tongan costumes to school and show and tell to all the rooms. First me and Izabella went to get dressed into our lovely costumes. Now that our costumes are on it time to take picture then talk about what we are wearing. First we went into room 12,10,9 and the juniors. It was a pleasure visiting all the classes and teaching them new things. Lucky last we went to Mrs Brough and did the same thing which was explaining what we were wearing which was a kiekie,tekiteki,tauvala and a kafa.

Last day of Volleyball!!🏐🏐🏐

On Tuesday 4th of September 2018 we had our last volleyball sesion with Renee. We learnt many different things such as how to spike the ball using our palm. On our last day we had an elimination. Before we played we got told the rules. Rule 1 if we make one mistake we are out, 2. If the ball is near you and you don't spike it to the other side you will be out. Now it was time for the real game.🏐🏐🏐
