Rugby League Session.

This is what I created on Picasa about our Rugby League Session.

Rugby League Session.


Yesterday morning we were lucky to have a rugby league session with one of the members from the Vodafone junior warrior squad. His name was Sio Siua Taukeiaho. Once we got there we were put into 4 groups of 7 or 8.

The first drill we did was a in and out one. The first team that got to five were the winners. Team one won of course. The second drill we did was my favourite one because it was all about trying to score a try. It was also the first on to three. You had to zig zag in between the people and once you got to the end you had to sprint to the end and score a try.

The very last drill we did was Kick Tennis. The aim of the drill was to try and get the other team out. You had to kick the ball to the other team if they didn’t catch and it landed next to you then that player was out. If you kicked it below the waist then the person who kicked it was out. This drill was really fun and interesting especially the name of it.

It was really fun training with Siua . Hopefully we get to do it again another time.

Science Road Show

Last week on Thursday the senior classes went down to the road show. We had to pay $7 to get in to the show.
It was held at Tamaki College. We all walked down class by class. It is part of our topic Bigger, Better, Faster, Stronger.

Before we left Ms Tito put us into groups of 4-6.I was one of the leaders for one group. In my group was me and 4 others ,Teari, Destiny, David and Ben. Ms Tito gave some digital cameras and flip cameras to some people to get some footage of the exhibit. Each group got given a work sheet to do but only I did it by myself the rest of my group were off goofing around the place.



My favourite exhibit was the theromen one. You put your hands over these metal plates and it would make a pitchy noise whether you put your hand close or far way. The one that I didn't like the most was the bubbling liquid because when I tried it, it didn't work.

I had a really good time at the road show hopefully there's going to be one next year. Fingers cross

The Design Process

In room 22 we have being learning about a design process. The design process has six steps to it, identify a need, research, Generating ideas, finding a solution, reflect and then evaluate. One of

Generating Ideas is one of the most important steps out of all of them. It is because if you’ve tried one of your ideas and they don’t work then you can go back to your other ideas.


There are all different materials you could use like metal, plastic, wood, cardboard.


I feel very confident about how my sign is going to work
out. I hope I have different ideas to others in my class

Swimming Lessons

For the last two weeks the year 7&8 students have been going swimming. During lunch time we would walk down to the G.I pools. Our teachers that took us were Ms Tito and Miss Dempster. We always go swimming in term 2 and term 4. The reason why is because if we are in a real life disaster then we might know what to do.

Second day of swimming was the best. It was probably the best day out of all of them because I hadn’t been swimming in a really long time I just felt over excited. It is very important to learn how to swim because In the future you might not know what will happen while your at sea.

I really like swimming. Its one of my strengths hopefully we have a great time at swimming in term 4.

My Grandma


I really think my grandma is a success not only because she has lived to 83 years, but many other reasons like this. My grandma married a Samoan priest and became what is known in Samoa as a ‘faletua’ which is in English the priests wife. The faletua in Samoan culture does all of the jobs in the church and runs the Sunday school. This is a very hard job in Samoan culture. She also survived her husbands death as well as one of her sons death. This was heart breaking for her but shes still with us stronger than ever! I love my grandma . I love her heaps!!!
