I and 14 others are so excited to go by bus to the theater show. I'm not sure what we will be watching, but I'm sure it'll be great. I went the last time, and I am blessed to go a second time.

Term 3

Image result for ruapotaka school symbolIt is near the end of term three, just two more weeks and we're done! I am both excited and scared because that means we're getting closer to term four.

The last two weeks will be quite stressful and mixed up, but I'm sure we can handle it.

Room 12 has been practising their speeches and there will be a performance day, for the finalists from each class.

12.Yesterday was our last session with Coach Rena. I was so sad to see her leave, but thankful that she had came in the first place.

In Room 12's last session with her we had a choice, we could either chose boys vs girls, elimination or a tournament, we all   to do a combination of all three.

At the end of all games Katrina and Saluselo had the chance to thank her in front of all Room 12.

Speeches !!!!!!!

This week Room 12 is about to begin speeches! Yes I said speeches, one of the most stressful times of the year. I am both nervous and excited to begin and hear others perform.

I am sure all of Room 12 is stressed out because not only do all students have to write their own speech, they have to be memorized, have a nice clear and loud voice when performing and last but not least use as much expression as you can!

The five students names are Tupouseini, Jessica, Saluselo and Tyron. They now have to perform everyday after our daily fitness to practice their poems. In the next few weeks they will say their poem aloud to the whole school and their parents.

Image result for powhiriToday is Ruapotaka's first ever school Powhiri.

The Prefects had been chosen to lead and speak of the Powhiri, and sing songs. Saluselo and I have the second two parts out of the whole thing, Riiana  will start of with a gathering speech, than Saluselo will say his part.

Mr Reid will then go on from there and I hope it will all run smoothly.
