Art Exhibition on way!

"Don't forget your roots" - is Room 11's focus for the GTS Art Exhibition this year. This idea was developed by the students. The meaning behind it is "connection back to your motherland".

Students are making/creating traditional clothing items, performance items etc that connects them back to where their families are from.

Breakers Trip 2019

Today, 40 lucky students were selected to attend a training day with the NZ Breakers basketball team in North Shore.

This training session was postponed from 2018. It was a cool experience because this is our National team and they trained us some of the skills they use on the court.

Thanks Mr Herlihy for the experience.

Hey Everyone,

Wow! Can you believe it's 2019 already? In Room 11, we decided it was important for our class to start the year by building positive relationships with one another. Team Building was the way to go.

Today we the spaghetti and marshmallow tower activity. The purpose of this activity was to see who could build the tallest and most stable tower using 20 marshmallows and a packet of spaghetti.

Damn Berry!

This film is about a Healthy drink called DAMN BERRY. It is written and directed by a group of Year 7 & 8 students from Room 11.

The story behind the film shows a group of girls playing netball, one girl in particular seems to be getting all her shots in and is outstanding through the game and that's a result of consuming the product DAMN BERRY! When you consume the product, it's meant to keep you revitalised, energized and stimulated through the duration of the day.

The film was inspired by our Inquiry focus for last term "Healthy Choices".

Samoan Language Week UMU 2018

Lastweek we celebrated SAMOAN LANGUAGE WEEK and to finish off the week, some of Room 11 (Mario, Raymon, Evan, Dadak-Su, Juan, Alfonzo and Po Lu) Mr Numia and Mr Faalili (our teacher aide) made an umu - a traditional way of cooking in most Pacific Islands, including Samoa.

In our Umu, we had Taro, Fa'i (Green Banana), Luau (Taro leaves saturated in coconut cream), Ulu Pua'a (Pig Head) and Moa (Chicken). On the side we had surimi salad made by Miss Tupou and Sapasui (Chop Suey) made by Mr Faalili - with help from Paige, Amy & Precious.

Here are some photos and videos from our UMU.
