Room 9 syndicate assembly

On Monday afternoon we set off to the multipurpose room for room 9's syndicate assembly which we started  with a song called The Best Day Of My Life by American Authors. The song was about life in general. 
After we sang that lovely song we had two contestants from each. room for the cup stacking competition From room 9 was Kate and Madison and from 10 was Malia and Liza I really wasn't that interested but I probably would have been if I have been a contestant. When the competition was concluded I hoped there would be another competition.
 Finally we gave the teachers some time to present their award for the most diligent student in their class. For room 9 it was Jacob and Musika and from room 10 was Peni and Stristin and luckily last was room 12 and it was Pupuke and Vaimoana.
 I have been coming to syndicate assembly for 3 years and I think it is worth while and it is a good idea to continue with these assemblies in the future.

What I Made At Tech

At Mr Grundy's wood work Room we made things that involved using wood. I made  a money box. Before we made our things Mr Grundy talked to us about his rules, one of his rules was to stay put. Before I made my money box with wood firstly we had to design what is it going to look like and what is it use for. First Mr Grundy give's me a long piece of wood that we have to mark the measurements for the joint. After we mark the joint I had to go and get a saw.  We had to cut halfway on each line. Then I had to go and get a chisel to cut up hill so we can make a joint. After I did all those steps I didn't know what to do. We had to put your name up on the board if you needed help from Mr Grundy. He'll call your name out so I waited  for my name to be called out. After that he called my name and said, "Write down what your money box is all about". I finally finished it off.
