R11/12 sings Moana's theme song

Enjoy our class singing the theme song from Moana. 

Mr Reid.

Today at our assembly every class performed an item about the pacific islands. Room 1 performed a Samoan Sasa and Room 5 sang a lovely Samoan song called 'Le Aute'. After that it was time for Room 6 to perform their item, I really liked room 6's performance because they performed a Samoan and Tongan item. Then it was finally our turn, we performed a song called 'How Far I'll Go' by Auli'i Cravalho and we were AWESOME!!!! By Julianne

On Friday afternoons Room 12 group 1 and 2 did art. For art we drew tapa cloths on paper based on our learning about "The Pacific Study". We used colors and pencils to draw Tongan or Samoan patterns and many island pattern. The patterns I drew was a flower and a traditional Tongan pattern. I used a black pencil to darken the outline and used a pencil to shade the inside of the flower.

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.)
(Our friend Henry taking photos of Robbie and the

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!
