Us year 7s and 8s have been practicing and preparing for our prize giving and cultural performance day. Room 12 have been looking forward to this day, and are thrilled for the holidays, during the holidays the schools in the Manaiakalani cluster and others can do a holiday blogging program, called The Summer Learning Journey.

Go The Distance

This Is Room 12's movie for the 2017 Manaiakalani film festival, this is the tenth annual Film Festival. Meafou and Viomoana were our presenters, and I was so proud of them. There were so many schools and so many movies, my favorite one was helping hands, which was by Room 1 of Ruapotaka School. This movie is about how you can be a rugby champion player.

For the year 7 and 8 boys we are very close to going to the Swim Magic Pools. I am very excited to go and get one hour swimming lessons and learn more about how to swim and learn how to breathe longer under water. Next week Friday we start swimming, all we have to bring is our towel and a extra pear of underpants.
