Table tennis tournament.

The tournament.


Yesterday on Thursday the 8th of November, me and my fellow table tennis peeps (Mala, Jadarose, Zoe, Luka, Leo, Solomon, Vinnie, James, Lucas and Mr Faulder) went to the Eden Albert table tennis tournament and participated. All of the boys had very hard people to compete with but did outstandingly well, sadly none of the boys got into the knock out round :( . The girls also had some big time competition, and we also did not get into the knock out round, however we were all so proud of ourselves for giving it a go, and, we all had heaps of fun. We all played 12 games and out of 12 games I won 4 including the bye, witch I was very proud of. and after the matches we played some games, noncompetitive table tennis and won some mentos (a chewy candy), then we watched the boys and girls finals, with the boys you could hardly see the ball. It was such a fun day and I highly recommend table tennis as a sport (even if you you aren't the best).

Roll a story

Character: An underwater goddess
Setting: Under water kingdom
Problem: Raining chocolate


Once upon a moody night there was an underwater Goddess and she lived in
an underwater palace, She liked being a Goddess and having power over her
kingdom.

One day something terrible happened, it started to rain... CHOCOLATE!
White chocolate, milk chocolate and dark chocolate
was pelting through the layers of deep blue sea, then, the lightning started.
Chocolate covered bacon was cursing the sky like a grumpy witch who just
came home from vacation, oh, and it was also a Monday.

Now you may be thinking chocolate covered bacon, YUM!
But you see, merpeople are sort-of vegetarians and the are mortally afraid of bacon
so let's just say, THIS IS A NIGHTMARE, for them at least, But for me Mmmmm,
Bacon...

Dawn raids visit

This term we have been reading 'Dawn Raids' by Pauline (Vaeluaga) Smith. We recently sent letters to some of the characters in the book and we were lucky enough to have someone reply. His name is Tigilau Ness and he is singer, his son is also a singer called Che Fu and is currently on tour.

Anyway, we reached out to him and he came in today to talk about the dawn raids and the Polynesian Panthers, it was very informative and entertaining. Something I found out about him is that he was sentenced to prison for 9 months for protesting against the dawn raids and Pacific Islanders rights.

Thank you Tigilau for coming and sacrificing your time to come and talk to us, we thoroughly enjoyed it. Also a big thank you to Mala's dad Chris who helped us reach out to him.

 Here are some of our pictures and videos from our amazing day, like always, hope you enjoy:

Me and Digby are welcoming Tigilau.
