Joshua Iosefo Visiting Our School

Joshua Iosefo wrote a speech was called Brown Brother. Room 20 saw this on youtube, before writing about him and his speech. Joshua Iosefo’s poem got over 63,000 views, but he got more publicity for this when he went on Campbell Live.

Our Teacher emailed Ms Iosefo and asked her if Joshua could perform his speech. She said yes. So first thing in the morning Joshua came into our team assembly said he speech and answered some of our questions.

Thank you Joshua. You inspired a lot of us.

Tommy Wilson Presentation

My Nan's Birthday

“Have you set up the table yet? whispered my mum We were going to have a surprise Hawaiian dinner for my nana’s birthday. Not only were we going to have a Hawaiian dinner my siblings and I had to dress up in Island cloths. I was wearing a hula skirt was a Island T-shirt.

We had heaps of seafood and island food. We were having a feast. First I tried some taro and some prawns, it was delicious. My favourite thing to eat was the prawns.

After we ate my brothers and I did little items for our nan. I said a poem that i made up for her. Then i got my uke and played the happy Birthday song while my brothers sang. My sister Caramel tried to sing to with us as well.

It was a lot of preparation but it turned out to be good at the end. I hope my Nan had a good time.

Sports Rotation

"What are we doing next?" I asked our team captain Toreka. All of the Senior school was out playing games while our teachers had a look at what the junior bit of the school was doing. We did activities like singstar, decorating shells, obstacle courses and cyber coach. It was fun to play games first thing in the morning especially for team points.

Each group did 4 activities.The 4 activities we did were Singstar, Jump Jam (dancing), watching the Toyshop Production and decorating Cookies and shells. My favourite activity was watching the Toy Shop because it was fun to see what our friends looked like when they were younger.”Hey there’s you,” said my friend Shoal. I was dressed up as a Bear.

My other favourite activity was decorating cookies and shells. We had to split into 4 groups. But we couldn’t just decorate them in any way, we had to make something that related to the Olympics. In my group we decided to draw the Olympic torch with felt pens on the shell.

It was a lot of fun and I hope that that we can do it again soon.
