As term 3 came to an end it was time for the speech finals.  It was tough work deciding who would go through to the year 4 - 6 finals but these five did a great job representing Room 9.

You four and Soana should be very proud of yourselves!

Another important part of the day were the speeches in other languages, these four were all able to complete speeches in Tongan.

A big congratulations to Anavea, Heilala, Akanesi and Mele.  Sai 'aupito!

Comic Book Art

For the last couple of weeks we have been working on our own comic books.  We also learnt about onomatopoeia (words that mimic the sound of the noise they make).  Here are the 'pop-art' creations we made using these types of words.

Cross Country

Our cross country runners are off to Bailey Road School today to compete with other schools.  Here are our runners from Room 9.  

We wish them luck!
