New Zealand Breakers

On Wednesday 17th November 10 boys from Ruapotaka School went to the Breakers training center. We left school at 9:30 and returned at 1:35. The boys who were chosen to go to there were me, Timote, Aydrian, Mika, Quros, Popi, Sione, Pepe, Dakbai and Min Zin. We all got a free basketball and had a 25 minute lesson with 2 players from the Breakers. We took a quick photo and came back to school with Mr Reid.

P.A.T Reading Test

Tuesday was our P. A. T Reading test for term 4. First of all we did some fitness and then were told to go to our classrooms. We had to separate our desks and got our pencil and rubber out. We had to wait for the year 8's from Room 11 to come to  Room 12. I was worried but confident that I would be alright. It took 45 minutes to finish the test. When it was finished I was so happy that it was done.

The Botanic Gardens

Today Room 12 went to the botanic gardens at 9:45 am. Me Quros, James, Mele and Vaimoana went in the other bus with Rooms 1-3. When we hoped out of the bus we had to find Mrs Golder. We all had to line up. I had to go to the back of the line because I was the back leader. We where given a piece of paper with some questions. We had to walk around the garden and find the answer to the question. When we finish filling out the question we went for a little stroll around the gardens and then we went to the bus to go back to school.

Lunch Time Sport

Image result for sport

Today Room 12 was on lunchtime sport with Mr Reid. When I got there Mr Reid put me in James team. When I got there the other team already had 1 point.  I just stayed at the back so that the other team wouldn't get another goal. After 8 minutes I decided to move up. I told Lupe to kick the ball near the goal. I ran as fast as I could and kicked the ball and it went into the GOAL!! Lucky for me there was no Goalie. We all enjoyed running around and having fun.

Would You Survive?

TihoiFive months on school camp. NO devices allowed and even if you do there's no reception and there's no
WIFI !! Combine that with 14 year old boys from a private school, well it doesn't sound like a good mix. The aim of this camp is to get them off their devices and get them outdoors, and to teach them essential life skills. As for school, lessons are in the mornings and on weekends. Afternoons are devoted to outdoor activities such as running, abseiling, and hiking for up to three days. The boys can only go home for the holidays, and the odd long weekend.

Flight of the Albatross

Ruapotaka Mini Olympics

On Friday the 19th of August Ruapotaka had their first mini Olympics. We got split in to 16 countries. I was the leader of France. Vaimoana and 2 little kids had to go up and hold the flag. There were 8 people in my group. It was hard to lead a group that didn't really listen to me.  We had 4 rotations and then we had to line up for the closing ceremony.
