A night to be Treasured

Yum, yum, yum, in my tum, tum, tum
Masala Restaurant here we come.

This was a night to remember,
In the month of December,

The year 8 dressed so beautifully,
To dine at Masala Restaurant was such a great opportunity.

Across from Mission Bay,
We saw the beautiful view on the sunny day.

Finally we sat down, time to eat!
Woohoo! I jumped up and stomped my feet.

Yummy, I ate spicy Garlic Chicken mild,
and talked with everyone who laughed and smiled.

All our memories of friendship of friendship will always
What a night to never forget,
As we left, the sun began to set.

Piha Mills Camp

The three days at camp was a great experience for me to forget about school work and just have fun. It was an opportunity for everyone to work together and experience life outdoors.

Walking through the bushes to the waterfall was the most enjoyable time at camp. I felt so calm walking on my own looking at the trees and bushes surrounding me. The only thing I could hear was the birds tweeting and the river babbling.

I finally reached the waterfall. I was so excited that I almost slipped down the slimy rocks. Robbie, Lavinia, Angelica and I slowly walked in the waterfall. It was as cold as ice. I shivered and grew goose bumps. People started splashing around. It was super fun!!

Nutrient - Water


Water is good for you
It’s good for me too

We drink it everyday
to wash the waste away

We keep our blood cells clean
Even though it can’t be seen

You can drink water from tanks, bottles and taps
after doing many laps

Fruit and veggies contain water too
and is good for me and you

The End

French Week 1

Today my learning intention was to recap on what we have learnt from Term 3 on how to greet someone. We used to practise. It helped recap on some greeting words. I had to spell the French words, match the pictures, match the words etc. I learnt two words which helped. Such as Bonsoir - Good evening and Bienvenue - Welcome.

Musical Evening 2012

Performer - Room 2
I was so scared. It was my first time to sing in front of a huge audience. I stood there on stage as everyone made the sign of the cross. I tried my best to calm myself down, but I couldn’t. Everyone’s big sparkling eyes were staring right into mine.

It was my turn to shine. I sang our opening prayer which gave everyone a big smile. As I sang the verse, Room 2 began to play the xylophones. I tried to sing with all my might.  I think I did my best.   When I sang the verse for the second time, I was actually enjoying  myself and pretending I was by myself in a big meadow and beautiful daisies all around..

I was so relieved that the song was almost over.  I had a BIG smile on my little face.   Everyone started clapping and cheering. 

We finally ended with a bow and walked off stage, wishing to have another chance to perform!!
