Who are we?
We aren't only a class, we are the best class ever! There are 28 people in our class, there are 15 girls and 13 boys. We are a mix of year 7s and year 8s. All of us are friends we don't exclude and we look after people if they're sad.
10 April We have completed our amazing fantasy pepeha, scroll down to Students Work down the page!
6 April We did some awesome writing this week with Mrs Petersen, based on the book If I Was a Banana by Alexandra Tylee. Scroll down to Students' Work to have a read. Quite a few students read their work at assembly today.
29 March A couple of painful photos have been added to our camp photo page. At lunch time today is the Fun(d) Raiser. Everyone is organised, we hope. Lots of people have brought money to spend, so it should go well. Our groups are: Sherbet Queenz, Wet Mr Fitz, The Very Scary House, Lolly Lovers, Games Kiosk and Sweet Tooth. Room 13 also have some stalls.

8 March Next week we are going to camp at Waihi Christian camp, we've had 3 newsletters go home and we're getting in our money. We have also been learning our Pepeha. We always have a word of the day up so come have a look to learn something new! We've started a book called 'The Fat Man' set in the old days of the Depression.
1 March Well done everyone. Room 14 have all passed their test of reciting the first two verses our Te Po poem, by Katarina Mataira.
21 February Mrs Petersen has had us learning about the census coming up. We were curious about how homeless people are recorded in the census. We wrote to the census people and they told us how it works.
Starting off with a great year, all the students in the best class ever!! have been up to a lot of awesome work! In Room 14 we've been doing heaps of art we are doing koru art and shields at the moment. In the computer suite we've been doing personal profile profiles they are up on our wall so come check them out there pretty amazing!! Mr Hawkes is an awesome human being, another upside is he loves soccer.
