On Wednesday the 24 February 2016 our class went to Tiritiri Matangi Island.  We used two modes of transport to get there.  First it was a very early morning ride in the bus to the Ferry terminal.

Next it was a long, but exciting ride in the ferry.

We reached the Island at 10:30 in the morning, were put into groups and walked around looking at some amazing sights.  Room 11 will tell you more about this in the next blog.

Not long ago most of the students in our class had a hand in planting our orchard of over 100 trees.  When our teacher took us to the orchard the other day, we were surprised to see the trees hanging with delicious fruit.

mmmm, this plum is devine!

We immediately tasted the plums and apples that were ready to eat.

The pears looked mouthwatering too, but our teacher assured us that they were not yet ready.
We also can't wait to taste the yellow peaches which are heavily laden on the trees.

Harrison, the new kid in our class was chuffed when his new chromebook was delivered to him.  He could not stop beaming as he opened the box to reveal his new chromebook.

Room 11 started the new year (2016) not with a bang, but with a JUMP!.  Yes we jumped for joy when we came to Room 11.  We jumped up when we went for our first fitness run.  We jumped when our teacher said that we were starting swimming the next day.  And we jumped and jumped and jumped when our teacher took us to the jumping castle.

We started the first day at our school with a bang.  First, we got to see our Principal open the brand spanking new playground for the juniors.  We were a little jealous because we could not play on it, but I am sure my teacher will find time to take us there. (We hope).
The opening of the Junior playground.
Then it was time to go to the hall and be placed in our new classes for 2016.  We all crossed our fingers and hoped we are placed in the class we wanted to be in.  When our names were called to be in Room 11 there was much relief but a few sighs too.  Now we are comfortable in Room 11.  It is such a cool class!
We are waiting to be placed in our new classes for 2016.

We're Back!

Hello everyone, we are now called Room 11 and we are back.  This year we have a strong Year 5, Year 6 and Year 7 class with our teacher Mr Ramkolowan encouraging us along.  We are excited about our Year 5 students chromebook rollout this week.  We are also looking forward to our Tiritiri Matangi trip next week (Please pray that it does not rain!).  The coaches from "SwimMagic" are doing a fantastic job teaching us the finer points of swimming.  Everyone in our class just love to get into the pool. - And thank you to all those lovely people who answered "Steve's" FaceBook call and sent swimming togs to our school.  We are humbled and very grateful to you all.  Now instead of shorts we have real swimming togs to get into the pool.
