Awakeri School News from 2005
21st December 2005 It's all over! A massive water fight today was fun, as was the cool senior disco last night. Everyone had a great time. There are some great pics of the disco, coming soon. Goodbye our lovely year 8s. Happy holidays everyone else.
December 2005 Last night was Fancy Dress. For
all of those who couldn't make it, this is what happened. First we had
the grand parade, where everyone showed off their cool costumes. Then
the classes took turns to do their dances. Then we had the awards.
December 2005 The school magazines went home today.
They look great!! Congratulations to Aroha Matthews for having her front
cover design chosen. The back covers are cool too, artists: Bryce Fox,
Monique Jackson, Christine Tipper and Vicky Rogers. The middle school
picnic was well supported at lunch time. Today is the junior
14th December 2005 The Events Centre lounge was packed to overflowing with 230 people for the school movie night last night. Everyone enjoyed the fairy tales, powerpoints a documentary and the Te Reo teaching video on our local placenames. Finally the premiere of Atishoo came on and then Stacey Law was presented with the Oscar for best director for 2005. Mr Sheather almost seemed pleased to hand over the trophy! Then everyone went home happy, although it took quite a while for all the popcorn to be swept up!
9th December 2005 Starting from last week the middle and senior syndicates have been doing their fancy dress dancing. The seniors (rooms 10,11 and 12) have been practicing a few different dances they are: Gay Gordon, The American Promenade, Patticake Polka and a Jump Jam dance. The Fancy Dress is on the second to last day of this year. Most of the boys and girls were too immature to even hold hands. They're getting much better though, and now there's only a few people who don't hold hands. Hopefully it will be down to zero people by Fancy Dress!!!
December 2005 The
day for the Film Fest has been confirmed
the 13th December. That's the same day that
we get our reports!!!
out for the premiere of room 12's
movie, 'Atishoo Atishoo we all fall
It's written by Stacey Law. Just think. She might be the next Peter
Well, in a frantic rush to put out the flame, Haylie grabbed
the teatowel and started to try and blow out the flame!! As the flame
drew closer to Haylie's hand, she threw it away on the floor!! In a
wink, the hero of the day came. Terri-Anne
November 2005 This week
on Thursday, the year 7's and 8's have their intensive. It's good to
see so many people participating.

Mrs Parker's last day. Good luck for the new baby Mrs Parker. Mrs Bateson
is taking over in Room 8 till the end of the year. Today Room 12 finished
their movie making, about the bird flu. There were superheroes, the
Queen and the bird flu herself in full costume running around the place.
Room 6 did a cool Peter and the Wolf dance at assembly too.
November 2005 Today
was another great day, as usual!
10th November 2005 Today the seniors had a great day at the interschool athletics sports at Otakiri. Katherine, Chelsie, Stacey & Vikki won the Yr 8 girls relay. All the 65 Awakeri students were dancing with joy. Lots of people got ribbons. Kirsty managed to add drama to the day (we should feel absolutely so sorry for her) by decapping her front tooth. Was it on the high jump bar? No. Did she get hit by the discus? No! Mr. Hawkes hit her in the face! (Just joking!!!) Check out our athletics photos.
8th November 2005 Lots of athletic records were broken last week. Check out our records page. Records held by such people as Aaron Phillips ( 9yr boys shot put in 2000), Iharaira Hakiaha (13yr boys shot) were broken. Steffi smashed the open 800m record by 5 seconds, while Tawa house beat Kowhai's 4 x 100m relay record by 0.08sec. Tautari Merito set five new records! Jayden Haddock set three.
November 2005 Today was

We're counting down.
October 2005 Today is Group
Day at Thornton, for those who did well at our
Ag Day last Friday. Group Day is where people from schools ALL OVER
the Rangitaiki Plains take their animals and compete against each other
for the ultimate champion. You can only go to Group Day if you get a
1st or 2nd place ribbon at your school Ag Day, and you can only compete
in the sections in which you got a placing. PHEW!!! I sure do know a
lot about Group Day, don't I?
14th October 2005 Ag Day!! It only rained after the day finished. The calves had been led, the lambs had been called, the kids had been judged, the dogs had gone through the obstacle course, the pets had been judged, Aroha's cat tried to escape but failed, the police dogs put on a display and the indoor show looked lovely. Click here to see some pics from the indoor show. Now all the winners are off to Group Day at Thornton on Monday.
10th October 2005 SCHOOL'S BACK!!!That's right, it's the beginning of term 4, and to start it off, Ag Day is this Friday. Good luck to all those who are taking an animal. Thursday will be dedicated to making things for the indoor show, and if you are baking something, make sure you bring it with you on Friday. Also, welcome back to Mrs. Bateson, who has just been overseas. She has been teaching in Room 1 today, and will be teaching some other classes, giving the teachers time to get other stuff done.
7th October 2005 Want to be listed as someone who goes to, or went to, Awakeri School, with the chance to write about your memories, etc... visit Old Friends
6th October 2005 Here are some pics of our kapa haka at the Rangitaiki Festival. Although they didn't win any prizes this year, they performed very well against some tough opposition. Not much of the holidays left. Enjoy it!
23rd September 2005 Production and kapa haka are over for another year. Both were a big success. The audience certainly enjoyed last night's final show. Glen the dog got more laughs than usual for his antics. Our enthusiastic ex-pupils even lined the exit door congratulating everyone on their performances. Click here to see photos of the production and kapa haka.
21st September 2005 Yesterday was the opening night, and it was awesome. There was a lot of cheering, and the actors were great. There was a matinee performance today, and the kids sounded as if they liked it a lot. We're very sorry, but we have no tickets for Thursday night. It was a fast seller!!!
September 2005 Yesterday
we had the Dress Rehearsal in the Little Theatre, and tonight is our
opening night. Highlights from yesterday:
September 2005 Today all
the equipment and gear needed for the Awakeri School Production are
being all packed up to go to the Little Theatre in town. On next Monday
everybody from year 5 to 8 are going to the Little Theatre for the Dress
Rehearsal for the whole day. Every year our shows are successful and
hopefully this year we can follow that tradition (of course we will!!)
We are going to perform at threee different shows, they are: The Tuesday
Night show (which is our first), The Wednesday
15th September 2005 The dress rehearsal went very well yesterday, and the Kapa Haka showed everyone what they could do. The costumes were great. The Tornado Dancers looked great with their white ribbons dangling off their black clothes, and the islanders with their long sarongs and their leis swinging on their necks. Phew. Tickets are selling fast, so I advise everyone to get in soon. Yesterday we sold $363 worth, and today we raised $513 worth. Most people are getting tickets for Thursday night, but there are still lots of tickets for Tuesday, so get in fast!!! Today we are having another rehearsal with only the props, hopefully we can get everything PERFECT! Hopefully...
8th September 2005 Today we are doing a BIG run-through of the operetta, Storming Godzone. Next week, on Wednesday, we are doing a dress rehearsal at the school, getting ready for the shows from the 19th to the 22nd of September. It's looking great! Tickets are on sale now, and the prices are... Adults-$6 & Children-$3. Also, the high schools have had their open days, and are now taking enrolments for next year. We're gonna miss those year 8's...!!!
September 2005 Everyone's into skipping. The big
groups on the long ropes get the ground shaking! Some people, including
Mrs Gordon, can do Double Dutch. Here are Crystal and Danielle...
30 August 2005 Preparations for the Storming Godzone production are in full swing. Mrs Cronin and Miss Isaac are choreographing, Mr Fitz and Mr Sheather are directing, Mrs Parker and Mr Hawkes are teaching songs, Mrs Merry and Mrs Petersen are organising costumes, actors are learning lines, stage movements, the minstrels are practising their items, the kapa haka is polishing up their items.....
August 2005 Congratulations
to all those who went to the EBOP Science Fair in town on Friday. Even
better, congratulations to the ten that won awards. Kimberley Byres
and Charlotte Little, Connor Jones and Nicholas Schuler got Highly Commended,
Alex Moore and Daniel Glassbrook got Silver, and Stacey Law, Emma Barr
and Matthew Reeves got GOLD!!!
18th August 2005 Yesterday was the annual Rangataiki Soccer/Hockey day. Lucky for us, Wannabe singer, Tamar Rika, came to sing to us, so as to get some more votes for the show on Saturday morning. Also, on Tuesday, some of the most talented mathletes went to Apanui School to compete in a math's competition, and one team (Sam Schuler, Shaun Musgrave, Zoe Johnston & Fiona Coulter)came first!!! Awakeri has had a very lucky run of talented students.
August 2005 Tomorrow
about 700 kids are coming to our school to play soccer in the annual
Rangitaiki Soccer / Hockey Day. The day will start with a special singing
performance by ex-Awakeri student Tamar Rika, who won the Whakatane
Wannabes contest. She will be competing on the TV 2 show this Saturday
(20th) at 10am. She needs your votes! Several other ex-Awakeri stars
competed as well, Jessie, Sarah and Rorey, but Tamar won through. Hear
Tamar tomorrow at 9.45am, then watch the soccer! Sorry hockey people,
you'll be at Edgecumbe!
9th August 2005 All ready to go. Yes this is the Awakeri Newspaper group have wrapped up their newspaper (Awakeri Affairs). It is one of the many newspapers in the NZ Herald Schools Newspaper Competition. It has taken them a term, 45 minutes a day to complete it. They are very proud of their work. Nicholas said the proudest part about their Newspaper was when it was finished. Abigail said that the hardest part of doing the Newspaper was when they had to check the whole newspaper and arranging all their work. If they win, they will all get to go to Auckland and they will get a cheque for $5000 towards our school. Good Luck!!
August 2005 Congratulations to Susannah Williams
and Fiona Coulter who achieved High Distinction in the Australasian
Science Competition. They had to have scored over 99 per cent. Well
August 2005 Congratulations to all those who participated
in the Science Fair this year. Of course, not everyone could win, but
you all gave it your best shot. We have the results from the judges,
and it was very close. In the science division, we had a tie for third
equal between Alex Moore: Spider Webs, Silky Threads or Human Meds
and Matthew Fulton: Pump or Dump,
2nd August 2005 The Science Fair judges are here. Thanks to the Fonterra dairy company for letting us have five of their scientists. All the students were interviewed by the judges, some students even had to be brought back from Manual by those great taxi drivers Mr Fitz and Mr Hawkes. There are some cool topics so the judges will have a hard time choosing the winners.
August 2005 The time has come!
The clock is ticking and it's that science fair time again! Who will
go through to the EBOP science fair? Well, we'll soon see!
Today I talked to Miss Isaac, the new teacher
for room 11. She was born in Dunedin, New Zealand, though she mostly
lived in the BOP and Waikato. She
was a teacher for
a while then she went back to university to learn about computers, and
became a Business Analyst. She
wanted to 'live' the world, rather than just read about it
so she moved to England
where she began teaching again. In her holidays she travelled to other
places such as Egypt, Turkey and parts of Europe. She saw the pyramids,
went inside one, sailed the Nile, went to the ANZAC battle fields on
the day of celebrations and saw the Mona Lisa in Paris + heaps more.
Isn't she so lucky!!!
25th July 2005 Well, the holidays are over, and it's time to get out your pencils and rulers. This term, to take over for Mrs. Bateson is Miss Isaac. She has just flown from England, although she is originally from N.Z. She'll be with us for two weeks before Mrs. Bateson leaves. Room 11 is looking forward to having Miss Isaac as their teacher, but it will be sad to to see Mrs. Bateson leave.
July 2005 The holidays are nearly over. Hope those
seniors have got their science fair testing nearly finished. They'll
have a week to get the presentation ready when they come back. They're
due in on Monday 1st August.
July 2005 Hooray. Today some builders
have come to remove the old windows in middle-school and are replacing
them with brand new ones! At last, we don't have to put up with creaking
windows, and signs saying 'Please don't open me!!!' Well, the teachers
are very relieved. This is what they had to say:
30th June 2005 Yesterday the senior school went to the Little Theatre to watch the Trident High School production, Radioactive. They managed to see a couple of former Awakeri students, including Sarah Richmond, who used to be a website monitor for our school! It was based on an old 1940's radio station, they had sound effects actors, explorers lost on a tropical island, some great singers, etc.
June 2005 Congratulations
to Stacey Law for winning the speech contest with her topic Fit For
Life. In front of 70 people, the judges had a hard task. They placed
Matthew Reeves 2nd and Chris Stanton 3rd. Click
here for some photos of the final.
28th June 2005 It was very warm this morning, the sun was shining, and everyone was outside, playing. NOT!!! It was freezing cold, and the whole school was covered in a white frost. Kirsty & Karis had a competition to see who could keep their hands on the cold ice! Kirsty won of course. Well, that's winter for you. Also, good luck to all those who are running in the interschool cross country at Manawahe today. We hope you keep warm up there!
24th June 2005 Congratulations to all those who made it into the semi-finals of the senior speech competition. We have had the last 6 speakers today. Unfortunately, 2 people were just too sick to say their speeches. That darn flu's got everybody. Anyway, the finals are on Tuesday night, and these 6 students are going. (If they don't get sick, of course!) Chris Stanton, Vikki Lowndes, Stacey Law, Miles McConway, Vincent Sheather and Matthew Reeves. Good luck Guys!
23rd June 2005 Round one of the senior speech semi finals today. Vincent and Miles were the first two and they set a high standard for everyone else. Miles's Scottish accent was impressive! We hope the five sick semifinalists will be OK to do theirs tomorrow. The grand final is Tuesday night, 7.30 pm in the staff room. ALL WELCOME! Who will win the Oratory Shield, that was first presented in 1949???
22nd June 2005 The flu is so bad at the moment. Today 71 kids and two teachers were off sick. It's been like this for the last week. Mrs Merry's class had 13 away today, not including the teacher!!! The speech semifinals have had to be postponed till tomorrow.
21st June 2005 School photos today. The photos were taken in the staffroom because of rain outside. It all went well until... Mrs Bateson realised that Kane was still in the sickbay and had missed Room 11's photo. She got her class back for another try (well apart from the sick ones who'd been taken back home), and Finn fell off the end of the row and landed in this special pot plant. The pride of the staff room. He smashed three bits off it!!
June 2005 It's that time again
of year again. Life Ed. Yesterday I interviewed Shirley, the teacher
of Life Ed. This is what she had to say.
13th June 2005 Mrs Merry has the school cross country squad training hard for the interschool. Click here for some cool pics of our cross country race. The seniors speeches are going really well. Over half of the students have given theirs. Today Room 12 had 14 people away!!!! There is a lot of 'flu around!
June 2005 Today was the
first of three Meningococcal immunizations. They were held in the Complex
and all the classes had their turn.
June 2005 Yesterday
was the Awakeri Cross Country day. Everyone in the school entered in
it and many people came out with firsts, seconds and thirds. The people
who made it to the top ten in their age group from ages 8-13 are going
to Manawahe later this month. Mrs Merry will get them out every day
to train. These are the placings:
May 2005 This
week on Thursday is the Awakeri School Cross-Country. This is when everyone
in the entire school runs a course to get first place. The top ten fastest
runners from year
May 2005 Thursday
was the inter-school Rugby/Netball Day. The netball was held at Te Teko
Pavilion. 4 teams from this school were involved in the sport.
The Rugby day was very successful,
P.T.A raised heaps of money for the flood
victims. A lot of the Awakeri teams did very well, and won all their
May 2005 Rooms
10 and 11 came back from Tui Ridge camp last Friday all tired but satisfied
from their wonderful 4 days of camp. When we first got to Tui Ridge
Mrs Merry and Mrs Bateson showed us around. Tui Ridge is huge and when
I say huge I really do mean it!! Our first activity was THE
AMAZING RACE!! It took a few hours getting through
all the activities like eating veges, looking for clues etc. The parents
(no surprise) felt like playing the dirty way by skipping a few activities!!
May 2005 Alex, Karis and Kirsty said goodbye to
Frances Campbell at assembly, on behalf of everyone. Did they say some
nice things? Of course! Mrs Campbell played piano, taught ukelele, read
some cool stories, made ginger beer.. The list goes on. The singing
wars her class had with Room 12 were lots of fun.
12th May 2005 Well, we have had a very silent week with rooms 10 &11 on camp. Unfortunately they are coming home tomorrow! Saturday sports is back, and Mr. Fitz. is expecting at least 19 team captains to go up at the Monday assemblies to say their sports results. Tomorrow is Mrs. Campbell's last day, and she's expecting a lot of presents!
5th May 2005 Everyone is right into things. Kirsty pushed herself so hard in yesterday's 12 minute run that she fainted afterwards! All the school's soccer, hockey and netball teams are practising hard out, after school, for their games this weekend. Chelsie will have to learn not to step when she's on the netball court. She should play a proper sport anyway!
May 2005 Hooray!!! Awakeri school
is back in action. This term is going to be very busy. We have our school
cross-country, all 3 Australasian competitions and the inter-school
rugby/netball day. The senior school has their annual speech contest,
and their science fair. It's a lot of work, but I'm sure they'll cope.
15th April 2005 The last day of term one. This afternoon there are a lot of fun activities organised by the house captains, except half of them won't be there, they'll be at Technology at Edgecumbe College! The whole school, apart from Room 12, get to choose from things like Awakeri Rulz, skateboarding, golf, skipping to music, petanque, playing marbles, etc, etc. Have a good holiday everyone.
April 2005 Well,
the schools going crazy for Jump Jam. Jump Jam is a dance that the students
(and even the teachers) are learning. It is an aerobic exercise that
all the students are eventually going to learn. Their main dance is
Keep on Moving. It is a great way to get the students going in the morning.
Also, in the weekend, some of Awakeri's students went to the netball,
between the BOP Magic and the Diamonds. They loved it.
April 2005 Yahoo!!
It's the last week of school for term one!! Both teachers and children
are glad. Well you shouldn't be surprised by the way some us act at
8 April 2005 On Wednesday we had the annual inter-school Touch competition. It was a successful day, making a profit of $1005.55!!! Yesterday, rooms 10,11 &12 went on a science trip to the Ohiwa Harbour to complete their study on the mangroves. They looked at the animals and plants living in the different zones. They studied the height of the mangroves and their aerial roots. They compared differences between the high, mid & low tide zones. Luckily for them, the weather was beautiful, and there was no rain!!! Click here to check out photos of our field trip.
April 2005 Last
week, room 5 had a camp at the Lions Hut. Unfortunately,they came back
to lousy weather, and a thunder-storm! They have some cool photos of
camp, follow the link from their page.
24 March 2005 Photos of Top School are here. Have a happy Easter break everyone.
21 March 2005 Yesterday was the 20th anniversary of TOP SCHOOL!!It was a great day, and over all we earned over $20,000. This year we had an entertainment group who bought some aweosome activities over from Tauranga. They had a chair-o-plane, which spins around (and makes you feel a bit sick) and a pirate ship, that goes back and forth. There were lots of schools competing, but of course only one school could take home the Grand prize. In the primary section we had Thornton winning, and in the intermediate section we had Whakatane Int, who also took home the Grand prize.The cheerleaders also did very well coming third, behind Paroa and Thornton. ABB also had a prize draw for three lucky schools, Ashbrook, Rotoiti and Kawerau Int, who all won $100.
18 March 2005 Awakeri School is humming with activity. Everyone is getting ready for Sunday. The cheerleaders gave the school a demo of their chants at assembly.
17 March 2005
This Sunday is the 20th ever Top School competition. Mr Fitz started
them off in 1986. He copied off an old TV competition called Top Town.
Now lots of schools are copying him! Today I interviewed Mr. Fitz and
asked him about what the first Top School in Awakeri was like. He kindly
told me all he could remember.
March 2005 Last Friday The Top School Team reserves were
picked. They're Asher Jones and Ben Hancox.
11th March 2005 Today two lucky classes, room 11 and room 12, gathered into room 12 to listen to music teacher Mr. Bayliss talk to them about the Clarinet and the Saxophone. He hopes that some students will decide to play the Clarinet this year.
8th March 2005 Today the guns from Awakeri School went to the Rangitaiki Plains InterSchool Swimming Sports. Hopefully they come back proud with first placings written all over their faces. Because everyone knows that Awakeri School is the best school around so there's got to be a few firsts, seconds and and third placings. Also there are no 13 year old students in our school YET so we have the disadvantage.
Also Room 12 came back from camp last Friday (which kind of spoiled our peace and quiet a bit). They had a great time though so that's the main thing.
6th March 05 Here are some nice pics of the school swimming sports. Thanks Jodi Burke! The interschool sports are on Tuesday. Go Awakeri!
Last Friday the 25th of February
Awakeri School had a swimming day.
Anybody from year 4 and up could enter, actually they had to go because it's not optional just like going to school. Anyway It's a bit boring just telling you about wagging school so I'll start by telling you about which events we could've entered in. There was Open 2 length freestyle, 1 length freestyle all ages, 1 length backstoke all ages, 1 length breaststoke from ages 8 upwards, all those events in width except breastroke. There was a bombing and best dive competition. Also there was a relay for the fastest house. Rimu won (Fluke). Now I'll tell you the interesting stuff, I'm talking about the Adults versus teachers versus the winning house (Rimu). The parents took the win with Rimu house coming 2nd and our unfit teachers coming last. One thing to remember from that day was when Jakob Parker (a student from Awakeri School who was in Rimu house) passed his last years teacher (Mrs Bateson) which gave the Rimu house the 2nd!!
Also, today the Awakeri Top School Team was selected. There are 6 boys and 6 girls but unfortunately only 10 get to take part because the other 2 are reseves they are in no particular order: Ben Hancox, Tony Sellars, James Holani, Vincent Sheather, Matthew Bateson and Matthew Reeves. The Girls are: Katherine Hall, Indiana Brown, Vikki Lowndes, Chelsie Pettinger, Leah Maxwell and Asher Jones. Unfortunately We don't know who the Reserves are.
21st February 2005 On Friday Room 10 went to manual. Last Year it was all at the Edgecumbe Primary School Buildings. But this year it has changed. The food technology is at the Primary School and the Electronics is at the College buildings. At Edgecumbe College they are constructing brand new buildings for manual. We're hoping they will be up in this year sometime.Well anyway I'll give you a few details on what happened there on the start of the first day. When the students got off the bus they were welcomed into the main hall for a brief explanation of what we would learn etc. The main teacher was at a course so we had relief teachers helping us as well as a student from the college. His name is Shaun and he was good with electronics. Also an extra bonus was that the canteen was open. Some people bought a few snacks from there. We had our own area that we could play in out of the school boundaries. My estimates reckon that it was about two acres in size. We had an exceptional time.
18th February 2005 Yahoo!! yesterday, we had our annual senior school fundraiser. In total we earned $1425.00!!! All the seniors were working hard to keep the younger kids happy. Everyone was running around the events buying food, playing games, painting, jumping out of windows and blowing bubbles! Click here to see some of the photos of our great day.
16th February 2005 Excitement is in the air, as tomorrow is our annual, senior school FUNRAISER. All the seniors have been working hard to come up with some activities for the younger kids to enjoy, in order to raise money for their camps this year. Some activities are, Bubble Bop, Art Mania, Time Out, Putt Putt Golf, Wacky Waterfight and The Snack Shack!So, every one, get out there tomorrow and have some fun!!!
It's now....half past one and I've just came in from a Monsoon-like
down-pour. The depth of rain near Room 10 was just over 8 centimetres
at one stage. It's still going now but it's not as hard
10th February 2005 The Awakeri School Students are getting all revved up for the Fund Raiser that is coming up next week. The Form ones and twos are the ones who are hosting the event. The income from the stores and activities go towards the Senior Syndicate's camps. Room 10 did some cool skits at assembly advertising their activities.
February 2005 House
Captains Here are the results
of this years elections for our House Captains! Congratulations!
4th February 2005 . Through the years we've had many exciting and excellent website monitors. Today Mr Hawkes has selected some great new website monitors. At this stage of reading this paragraph you would probably be thinking who are these website monitors thats why I'm going to tell you. In Room 1 the website monitor is a called Asher. She is new to our school but we're persuaded that she'll make a great job. The others are Stacey Law, Steffi Rogers, Carleen Steer, Daniel Glassbrook, Leah Maxwell, Chelsie Pettinger, Miles McConway, Rhona Whitaker, Vincent Sheather, Chris Johnston, Karis da Silva, Sharni McKay, Matthew Jones, James Holani, Casey Magee, Haylie Griffen and Matthew Reeves! I do Room 5. The other monitor who does the main web page is Kirsty Wakelin. Hopefully we will have a good year like many others before us (I'm sure we will).
February 2005 Yes! Awakeri's back
and into action! With around about 320 students in the new 2005 school
year, it's going to be crowded, BUT AWESOME!!!!
January 2005 Last year 63 of our ex-pupils got
prizes at the local high schools. Excellence in action! We are proud
