Duffy Role Model Assembly With Robbie Rakete.

Today we were very lucky to have Robbie Rakete as our Duffy Role Model.
He is a star of stage and screen and helped MaiFM when they first started out.
(Alexandra looks happy!)
Our students were proud to get their books from Robbie. Did you know he was the brown wiggle from the wiggles? (A great children's show by the way.)
(Pleased to have their new Duffy books.)

students receiving their Duffy books.)

Ruapotaka's Year 7's and 8's visit The NZ Breakers

Yesterday I took 10 very lucky year 7 and 8's to the NZ  Breakers basketball team training facility on the North Shore.
The boys and myself were impressed with how hard they trained every day.
Then, we got to play some B-ball and do some skills and drills with the team. Aydrian can't believe how tall some of the players are!
We had an amazing day with the Breakers.

Henare's Favourite Scene In The Huntsman.

Henare wrote this about his favourite scene. It's great work.

SnowWhite and the huntsman is a fantasy/drama film.

The main cast members in the movie are:
Kristen Stewart as Snow White,
Charlize Theron as Queen Ravenna,
Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman,
Sam Claflin as Prince William/ Snow White’s best friend
Raffey cassidy as young Snow White

My favorite scene in the movie is when the evil queen shape shifts into Prince William and feeds Snow White the poison apple. As she takes a bite she feels herself dying. As she is dying the queen turns back to her normal form. As she is lying on the ground crows start circling Snow White, Prince William and the Huntsman hear the crows and rush over to see what was going on. When they see Snow White and the evil queen, they try to hit Queen Ravenna with all their might but she disappears!

Safety Week-Halloween and Guy Fawkes

With Halloween just finished and Guy Fawkes coming up all the senior classes have been getting refresher lessons on safety.

It's important we make sure we don't put ourselves in harmful situations and look after each other.
Enjoy your week everybody.

Our Trip To The Botanic Gardens

We were so lucky with the weather today and had a fantastic trip to the gardens.
Room 11 by one of the many sculptures.

 A brilliant view across the lake

Too many interesting plants and flowers to look at

The sculptures were cool too. 

Highlights were the edible garden where we saw all the plants we could eat, the rock garden next to the lake and walking the many trails to all the different plant species.
