Practicing Our Skipping


For the last few weeks, Room 12 have been practicing their skipping. Once everyone grabbed their ropes we did ten skips forwards, backwards then side to side for warm ups. When we had finished our warm ups, we went into our groups.

 The members in my group are Timote, Pate, Lupe, Dakbai and Saluselo. For our skipping routine we are practicing to do push ups. When the skipping session is almost finished, we do a skip off to see who will skip the longest.

Daily Fitness 😥😥

Every morning after the bell rings, all the seniors have to line up for our daily fitness. Our fitness is running around the block for 10 minutes.I usually run with Azahar and Jack Daniel. We always stay on the left side so we don't slowdown the other runners.

National Milk Day

Today New Zealand is celebrating National Milk Day. This morning when we were drinking our milk, Mrs Golder said that it was National Milk Day. While everyone was drinking their milk, Meana took photos of the Room 11 and 12 students. National Milk Day has been celebrated every year on the 1st of June since 2001. On that day, we celebrate all aspects of milk.

We Are The Champions!!

On Wednesday we had an epic Inter-School Soccer Tournament. Representing Ruapotaka were me, Lupe, Min Zin, Dakbai, Saluselo, Timote, Meana, Izabella, Isabell, Katrina, and Solomone.

In our division there were Glen Taylor, Tamaki Primary and Sylvia Park. We defeated Glen Taylor and Sylvia Park but lost to Tamaki Primary.
In our last pool match we thrashed St Patricks beating them by 7- 0. In the Semi-Finals the result was Panmure Bridge 4, Ruapotaka 0.We made the finals - everyone was excited.

In the Finals we went up against Stone Fields, which was really intense. Both teams were trying their best to win the game. But no-one won, so it ended with a draw (0-0) Dakbai scored the most goals (5) and our MVP (Most Valuable Player) was Captain Lupe.
Overall we came 1st equal. Our whole team was tired and exhausted.

We are the 2017 CHAMPIONS!

Back To Technicraft

Today we went to Tamaki College to begin our  Technicraft class for this term. The year 8 students had cooking with Mrs Tuipolotu.

We made coconut truffles. The ingredients were oreos, coconut, condensed milk and chocolate. First we had to break the oreos into little pieces, then put them into a bowl. Later we added the coconut and poured the condensed milk.

After all the ingredients were mixed we had to put it into the fridge for 10 minutes . Next we had to melt some chocolate chips for our topping. When the truffles were ready we poured the melted chocolate on top. It was delicious.

Back To School

Today was exciting for me because it was the second day of Term Two 2017.

Over the holidays there were two special events, Easter Day and Anzac Day. Anzac was important to us because we had learnt about the topic and we even had a special Anzac ceremony. We sang the New Zealand national anthem and had one minute of silence to remember the soldiers in the war.    

Today was very fun and exciting.
