Ko Au Te Awa

On Thursday of the class awaits to go to the River Talks. I was so confused what we are doing since we arrived there. When I came I saw a man inside the creek talking Maori. Afterwards we talked about how to keep our river clean. However there's a lot of pollution in our river. We determined that we should not throw rubbish out our car windows and keep your rubbish inside your pocket. Afterwards my favourite show was a man drumming all sorts of beats. It was so thrilling we get to dance to the beat. Unfortunately I was so nervous join in.

Mr Grundy, Working With Metal!

On Wednesday the year 8's and Saint Pius was approaching Sir Grundy's Wood Workshop. Afterwards I had to trace my drawing with a pencil and insert it into a piece of wood. Later on Sir Grundy shows his deadly machines. His machine was so fierce the blade was moblising fifty times per second! However Sir Grundy has a key to on and off the machine. My design was a cross. Therefore there are sharp edge Grundy had to be careful for my design. Eventually he boiled metal into a pewter and pored it in a hole. My Design was a Cross. Sir Grundy had to poor in a special metal called pewter to fill the capacity in the hole.

Syndicate Assembly!

On Monday it was Room 10's Syndicate Assembly. Room 10 was our host and the seniors were the audience. The highlight of the assembly was Rooms 10 and 12 dance battle! Pupuke and Peni versus Alimoni and Kaimani. They were so fantastic but what strikes me is Pupuke putting his enormous effort to win! Unfortunately Peni was too afraid to dance!

My name is Robati. I am a senior student at Ruapotaka School. I was born in the Cook Islands but raised in New Zealand. I once lived in Hamilton with a caregiver but I journeyed to Australia to live with my father! Afterwards I had to relocate to Auckland, New Zealand to meet up with my grandparents.

Summer Learning Journey Begins!

Rachel Williams is inspiring us to register in the Summer Learning Journey. I'm thrilled to see what kind of adventure we are blogging about. The main focus of the whole program is related to New Zealand. Huge prizes are given away to those who come in the top 3. Chocolate, cookies, lollies, or maybe a valued item that costs over fifty dollars!

I entered last term, and my friends made it into the top two; but I came third. I was depressed to see that I didn't win a rugby ball or basketball.

Manaiakalani Film Festival!

Yesterday our whole school went to the Maniakalani Film Festival at the Hoyts Cinemas. First of all we all needed to be seated, waiting for the movies to start. Once the movies started, I was thrilled to see the lights turn off and the speakers piercing loud. Afterwards the dramatic sounds ended, the performers introduced themselves and their movie.

Everyone's movies were fascinating but it was time to go. It felt like half an hour but it was literally one hour!
