Forget Your "Smartphone" The "Superphone" Will Soon Be Your New Mate

At home, on the bus, on the street or in the park, a quick look round shows just how much we rely on our smartphones.

They've put internet access, cameras, scanners, cloud data and analytics into our pockets and try as we might, we find them hard to put down.

The Race Of Our Lives!

Tuesday was the race of our souls, everyone was nervous and very eager to compete in athletics. Everyone of the races were exhilarating which almost made me unconscious! Numerous times, people cheered and people were streaking around! 

Everyone took the consideration to pay attention and follow all of the teachers commands, it was astonishing! It was spectacular to see what such good behavior was displayed and the perseverance of our skillful runners!

Congratulations to those superior runners!

School Assessments

Today has been a very unorganized day, we have had 3 assessments. We all have been tested on, Mathematics, Reading Comprehension and Spelling/grammar. All of us have been worn out from how much assessments we have done and how much more there are to come.

Most of our tests are 45 mins, but our grammar test was 25 mins.

Term 4 Activities Coming Up & In Development & Community Events.

It is sadly the last term of 2017, assessments have come up and more hard work is yet to come. We all enjoyed the holidays but unfortunately, it has come to an end. Speeches are being in progress right now when athletics are coming up, cultural groups are coming underway and prize giving might be our last day of 2017!

We all have speeches written down and we at least have one page written down, my speech subject is currently about video games. Swimming is coming up for the year 7 & 8 boys, the Manakalani Film Festival is coming up next Wednesday when the Manakalani tests are coming up tomorrow.

Cultural groups are coming up and Mrs Foulu, our Cultural Samoan teacher is now working on the Samoan cultural group.

Technology (Graphics - Mr Pineda)

Today at Technicraft we went to graphics, this weeks lesson was different and also a creative task. We were making our take away boxes from last week and if we want we could make an emblem/icon/mascot for our restaurant.

Yesterday at Tech we were doing our expectations for Mr Pineda, we had to create a google drawing, not put it in any folder, name it : Expectations, Share it With Mr Pineda and be creative!

We could use to create our expectations by using words such as, focused, peace, hardworking, Graphics Technology, behavior and respect. The people who had finished were instructed to go to the document that Mr Pineda had shared with the Yr 7's and make a copy.

After that we had to think of a restaurant name, choose what kind of takeaway box and what ingredients to use for our food.We also had to share our copied document so that Mr Pineda could help us with one of our ideas. We would also get points for being responsible and for other good actions.

Cross Country Coming Is Up! (Ankles Broken Warning)

Today we had our first cross country run. We all were instructed to run for 2 laps,the faster/ more advanced runners took 3 laps for more practice/training so they can be prepared. Mr Reid said "tomorrow the years 4, 5 and 6's only do 2 -3 laps, when years 7 & 8 were doing 3 - 4 laps! So that will be our normal routine for tomorrow and for as long as until cross country comes up.

(Good Luck, Don't get your ankles broken.)
