Finally the day has come !!

Finally on Tuesday at 2:00 in the afternoon our Year Seven students got to have our very own netbooks, how cool is that!! We were so happy and delighted because we were the first Year Seven's (in our Tamaki Cluster) to trial our new netbooks. I think we are one of the luckiest schools in the Tamaki cluster trialing out our new netbooks, as part of the trial, we had to take a photo of ourselves and put it on our blog.

I would like to say a huge thanks to our very generous donors who generously gave us some money to go towards buying our first 100 netbooks.

Our year7 girls rugby game against Viscount....

Last week our year7 girls had their rugby game against Viscount . On that day we had to run around the field 3 or 2 times . I felt really nervous about the game because they were big and tall but I knew this would be a good game . When we had to get changed we first had to do a game plan for our game . After that we had to practise where our positions were and when do we come in to do a scrum .

When the game was going to start my legs were full of goes bumps . As we all run up to line getting ready to
kick off the whistle went brinnnnng ! when we kicked off “ Leni tackled the first runner . when we were playing I notice that my shorts were falling off Aaarh as I pull my shorts up getting ready to tackle .

My best part about the game was that we played really well and that people got to have a run !! .
but then some of our girls got tackled badly which was “ Sela . When it went to half time I got advice from this man , the weird part about it was that his advice actually worked so then I kept on doing it .

As we go back on the field I had my own plan which was to trick one of the players .
This last half was pretty funny because both teams were passing the ball everywhere and there were people slipping on mud’s . I think this should be my best game ever playing against Viscount even though we lost but we still hadeach others backs .

I would we like to say thank you very much to my couch " Bobbi and helpers !!
YOU GUYS ROCK !! ,,,,,,,

Volcano Report

How does a volcano erupt ?

Underneath the earths crust the pressure of the magma builds up. It then is forced up and it makes a vent in the earths surface. After it has erupted the lava then dries up and forms a mountain .

About volcanoes .

Volcanoes are mountains that erupt. It is a vent in the earths crust through which magma and gasses erupt. The word volcano comes from the god of fire, Vulcan. Volcanoes are all over the world. Most volcanoes are on the edge of the tectonic plates .

3 different typ of volcanoes

The shield volcano got its name because people thought it looked like the shape of an ancient warriors shield. The shield volcano is low in silica. They are shallow sided and have a flat bottomed crater. It has a long fluid lava flow which can also flow into sea. Shield volcanoes can also be found on the ocean crust.

The stratovolcanoes are the most famous volcanoes. Mount St. Helens, Mt Vesuvius and Mt Fuji are all stratovolcanoes. When they start to erupt it begins with an explosion of ash and cinders. These volcanoes are often found on subduction zones.

Cinder cone volcanoes are the smallest volcanoes.
These volcanoes are formed by low silica magma that is runny. They are steep sided volcanoes that are cone shaped.

What is the biggest volcano in Auckland ?

The biggest volcano in Auckland is Rangitoto . Rangitoto is one of the youngest volcanoes
but this volcano has the most violent eruption when it occured it last eupted 600 years ago to 800 years . Rangitoto was named after a woman whose name is Te RangiTotongia
that's how it was named Rangitoto .



Don't we look GREAT in our new uniform.
As our Aces team heads along to the courts , first we had to take a team photo . After that we all got sorted then headed off to the netball courts . When we arrived we went for a jog around the the courts then had to do 4 side steps to the line then come back . My position was CENTER then I will have to change to WA in the next half then it was time to play so we stretched first and drank water.
As our game was about to start it was our ball first ! The ball come down to our shooters our team got the first point
. Then the game became harder because the other team had more point so then our team went hard on them so then we were in the lead it was nearly half time so we threw the ball back to the shooter then had the last goal !!
My position was CENTER I was so happy because center is a good exciting position for me because I can run around and get the ball straight to the goal . The game was nearly over and our team were winning !
The bell went ` Brinnnng ! and the ACESS WON !! .


Mystics vs Steels

Last night my sister and I watched the Mystics vs Steels .
My favourite player was playing which is ` MARIA. As it started my sister and I got happy because this was the finals playing . As the game bell went ` brinnnnng brinng '
it was mystics ball first. I screamed YA YA Mystics had the first score !! . The next round was so close to the point
they had 5 minutes left till the game was over . As the Steel was in the lead the Mystics went harder on them then it was the Mystics ball . They passed the ball real hard as if they were professional !! But then it went to a tie as it was 2 minutes left .
My sister screamed Ya YA it was a point to the MYSTICS !! . the bell went ` Brinng the game was over and the Mystics WON !! .

Auckland volcanic field

The Auckland volcanic field is made up of 48 basalt . This Auckland volcanic field was formed
because there was a huge hot spot . Mt wellington , Rangitoto were both the youngest volcano but Ranigtoto was the biggest eruption . The Auckland volcanic field is very young with the first eruption occuring around 250,00 years ago . It is the a big massive hot spot in geological
terms the Auckland volcanic filed is very young .



Rangitoto is one of the youngest volcanoes in Auckland . It has probably erupted twice and Scientists believe that it is extinct. Rangitoto was formed through a violent eruption
about 600 years ago and was one of the most violent eruption in Auckland. Rangitoto was named after a women whose name was Te Rangi Totongia which was a beautiful name that's how they came up with Rangitoto . It had erupted 600 years ago which makes it the youngest of all of the volcanoes in the Auckland Volcanic field.

Rangitoto was the only eruption to be witnessed by man.

Rugby against the year6 boys


Last week on Friday we had a match against the year 6 boys at our school. The reason why we had a match was to prepare us to play Viscount. We learnt what to do when we come in for a scrum. As soon as we got all organised it was time to play. My position was half back and wing it is scary because I am the one who gets the ball and then runs or passes. In the second half we had to change position so everyone gets a turn. The first person to get a try was me and Sela . It got boring because people were hogging the ball. The shocking part was when Sela tackled Richard ` now that was WICKED ' Woohoo go Sela' we all cheered for her. The person who tackled the most was Reina, Shaniah and Bobbi-Grace. As Mr Burt gets us together we were told that there was going to be a meeting.

We asked Mrs Nadia if she can watch us play rugby with the year7 boys. It was so cool because we were all sharing the ball and we were playing fair but then it got rough because there were people that were high tackling girls. So then Victoria and I went to play some where else.

" HELEN your turn already I shouted OK the person I verst was Destiny M BOOM as hit the angle of her feet ! but it was sad cause I lost !

Acrostic poem !

Protection for all is the key
The Korero helps us to see
Everybody must succeed to be
No one should disagree to achieve
Guess to depress the west
Leave the school cause its the best
Always leave the classroom clean to beat the rest
Never ever be pest
Doing stuff is what we do

When other think they are cool for you
Aim to behave like others
Yes our SCHOOL is too COOL for you .
