the weekly catch up 5

Hi everyone this week our bloggaloggas are Anastasia and Sam.
Over the last couple of weeks we have been training for the Cross Country AKA angry (cross) nation (country). We have 3 groups for training they are the Sloths, the Giraffes and the Cheetahs. We are given an amount of laps to do. When we are finished we yell done and Mr Williams gives us our time and our goal is to beat the time before. Mr Williams also encourages us to choose another person in our group and aim to beat them!! Everyone is improving. YAY!!
On Monday the senior team went to Hagley golf course to practice their golf skills on a real course. Everybody had a lot of fun at the golf course. Many of us were brilliant at golf and are destined to be golfing stars.
Last week we started on our egg diaries. They have mostly been written in first person. They are very funny and we are enjoying writing them. Here are some opening sentences of our egg diaries!

Anastasia's opening sentence: Hi, i'm Shelly and I'm going to talk to you about my spectacular adventures with my mum.

Thomas's opening sentence: "yaaay" I just got my new diary. But "boo" my best friend just died, he was killed in action. But we have have to over come our weaknesses.

Sam's opening sentence: Hi Nacho - Libre here. I'm going to talk to you about my ab fab, exciting , fun and sometimes sad life! Well it all started at birth ( of course) !!

On Monday the first sports trial was held and it was Netball. All of the other sports are going to have their trials next term.
On Tuesday we went to the Blue Skies outdoor activity centre we had lots of fun doing the initative, orienteering and confidence courses.

Yesterday was a mufti day so we could raise money for the returned and services association. We also had a A.N.Z.A.C cerimony in the hall. Mr W told us all the details about A.N.Z.A.C  day.

Today is the last day of term wich means 2 weeks off school! ( yay). But sadly Miss Dunbar left the school at lunch to head to Aussie ( mate mate mate).

Make sure you check back next term for the weekly catch up 6!

the weekly catch up 4

Kia ora everybody and welcome to our blog!! Today our bloggaloggas are... Jade and Sam.
Last Thursday we started a competition that would change our lives for ever!!! (not really). It was the egg-sitting challenge. Basically we have to take care of an egg for as long as we can and if it smashes we are elimanated from the competition. It is part of the Keeping ourselves Safe programme. We have made many very cool houses for our eggs that will keep them safe from harm.

Also last Thursday St Albans school had an Easter Egg Hunt!! Every student was paired up with their buddies.Our buddies were Rm 5. Rm 24 had to hold the little 5 year olds hands!After we found all the colours and coloured the eggs in, on our sheets, Rm 24 and their buddies chocolate eggs were hiding in their little baskets in Rm 4.Mr Williams and Mrs Craig hid the baskets, so the children had do a Easter egg hunt to find their yummy chocolate. Many people were tired when the day finished.

Fabulous Rm 24 did some fabulous portraits.The portraits are hanging up in our Fabulous Classroom.Mr Williams asked Rm 24 who's portrait looked more like them self, and the winners were...Julius and Anastasia.Now the portraits can stare at naughty kids to freak them out!Mr Williams thinks Amandas portrait is doing the job.  :) :)

St Albans School are engouraging people to walk the loop.A childs reward for walking the loop is house points. The school councilers are out there once a week to reward children. We will be out there again on thursday. So... walk walk walk walk the loop and follow the footprints!!!

Nervously Rm 24 has been doing P.T and B.R. P.T stands for Prepared Talk and B.R stands for Book Review. Bravely Rm 24 have coping. Everyone has had a turn and have done very well, because it is quite nerve wracking getting up in front of everyone.
We'll put some photos on next week, we are off to be dramatic and creative at interchange now. Bye!!
