New Zealand Takes Silver πŸ₯ˆπŸ…

  (Women Cyclists) New Zealand's first silver medal went to the women who conquered  and represented our country in the cycling competition. Bryony Botha, Rushlee Buchanan, Kirstie James and Raquel Sheath initially kept pace with the Australian quartet, but then fell behind after a while.

Earlier the Australians had set a scorching new time, 4 minutes and 17.218 seconds, this score allowed them to qualify for 1st place. 

(Men Cyclists) The men's cycling team set a new Commonwealth record to qualify first for the gold medal final against England. Their time of 42.822 broke the record of 43.181 previously set by New Zealand in Glasgow.

River TalksπŸŽ‰πŸ˜€

Yesterday at approximately 12:30pm half of Room 12 and all of Room 10 went on a school walk. We went to Glen Innes Omaru River. We learnt a lot about the Omaru River and how and what we need to do to keep it safe. During the river talks we saw a Cook Island performance and the performance was done by a young girl. After the event was done one of Saint Helliers teachers or parents stood up and thanked the people for what they had done. After the lady had finished speaking she lead the school into a waiata (song). When the lady was completely finished talking I was put on the spot. When I stood up and said something I was shaking because it was freaky. When I had finished speaking I lead Ruapotaka into a song.

WOW!πŸŽ†πŸŽ‰


At precisely 1:32pm Room 10 held their the second syndicate assembly for Term 1 2018.

There was a dance battle. The first two classes were Rooms 9 and 10. The winner had to go up against Room 12. The battles were very funny because of the tricks they were doing. Like the cowboy dance, robots and a dance that I have never seen before.

In the end Room 10 ended up winning.

Get To Know Me πŸŽ‰πŸŽ†πŸ˜€

My name is Katrina and I’m a year 8 student who currently attends Ruapotaka School and this is who I am. At school I have a considerable role because, I’m the head prefect of Ruapotaka School. Being a head prefect means I have to take on more responsibilities than the other 5 prefects combined. I, as head prefect, have to be an excellent role model to all students at Ruapotaka. I also have to make sure the other prefects are in shape and that they are doing their personal jobs properly. This year is probably going to be very sad because it is my last year as head prefect at Ruapotaka School.
In my family there are eight children and I’m the third eldest. I have six brothers and two sisters.  I’m half Maori, quarter Cook Islander and also quarter  Pakeha. I was born in New Zealand. My mother is Maori and my father is Cook Islander and Pakeha.

I like watching television and frequently cooking. Sometimes I cook things like noodles, mashed potatoes, and mince. My mother makes sure I’m always being watched.

My physical features include me being taller than my own age. My eyes are brown but when I cry they turn hazel.

I hope you’ve learnt a lot about me.

Becoming Head Prefect πŸŽ†πŸŽ‰



 Earlier on this term I became head prefect followed by having 4 new prefects, thanks to my principal Mrs Vickers.

This year is probably going to be very sad because it is my last year as head prefect at Ruapotaka School.

At first it was hard for me to take in, but later on that day I told my mum what had happened and she was very proud of me, so that made my job easy because now I know I'll always have her by my side.

My Journey Across New Zealand

Dear friend, 

It has been really great voyaging across New Zealand in a waka.  The waka is very different to a electric boat. These people on the waka here with me welcomed m with open arms. It is really great to be travelling round New Zealand. 

The sad thing is that your not here with me. 

See you soon.

From: Katrina, your friend
