We have to write an information report about a significant day we chose like St Patricks Day , Valentines Day and Christmas..... and we are going to have to create a digital presentation to give to the class on our chosen day too
In Assembly on Thursday The Brass Band played some National Anthems to the whole school. Sadly there is no one from our class in the band, it is taken by Mr Noel Saunders, he has been taking the band for many, many years. It costs nothing to join and you even get supplied with an instrument.
The anthems played were:
God Defend New Zealand (NZ)
God Save the Queen (UK)
The Banner of Freedom (Samoa)
Advance Australia Fair (Australia)
The Star-Spangled Banner (USA)
one from the Netherlands
La Marseillasie (France)
All these Countries are participating in the Rugby World Cup.( I think they did a very good job.(Collette)

Yesterday at Singing Assembly, we had Whaea Awhina teach us some new maori songs because it was Te Wiki O Te Reo Maori Maori Language Week. We learnt Wairua o te Puna and He Kakano.
Over the last week Room 10 have had Constable Louise in talking lessons about bullying- Kia Kaha. Today we learnt about stereotyping people.

This is something Room 10 has a good understanding about because our Michael is blind, he has a cane which he uses to help him find his way around - he is really good at getting around our school now and he has a pac mate to help him do his school work with.

He talked to us about his recent appearance on TV's Master Chef programme. He also donated a cook book from the show to our school library.
