During this term Rooms 3, 6 and 5 have been working together to produce their very own breakfast cereal. R6 are making the product, R3 are packaging it and R5 are marketing it. The ingredients we have used for the cereal are granola, puffed rice, mango, yoghurt covered raisins and sweetened with stevia and honey. If you would like to purchase our cereal we will be selling it in Week 9 at 8.30 outside the school office. The price is $6. We appreciate your support and all profits raised are going towards the school art space. Thanks, Rooms 3, 6 and 5.

Check out this awesome video of our Kapa Haka: Te Roopu Whanau performing "Okatia" a waiata composed by our roopu to the tune of 'Broken Hearted' by Karmin. The waiata is about the legend of Okatia, a giant totara tree who carved the Manawatu River.

HONNNNKKKK!!! The load horn sounded. The fastest 5 from 21 schools. 105 children are pushing and shoving as we were sprinting down the field toward the logs. We could hear the cheering crowd, as loud as the audience at a Stan Walker Concert.
Running across the road we turn towards the brown, sloppy, smelly puddle. Ooops! People fall over near us, their whole body, even their face is covered with the brown, sloppy mud. Bursting for breath we now run up the long hills and in the distance we could see another puddle…
Running down the steep stoney hills, we run faster and faster trying not to trip. The electric fence is ticking like an olden day clock, we feel worried and head for the middle of the puddle to avoid it.
Finally we are running down the finishing straight, people are trying to pass us. We pass others. We are so tired, we can hardly pick up our legs. They feel like soggy pieces of bread. we feel as slow as a tortoise. People are encouraging us as we run. Pushing us on.
We see people on the Massive, Massey University field gasping for breath. We feel like we’re going to faint as we puff across the line. We feel proud and happy for all the other people, like Georgia who came 6th and Jocob who came 17th.
Happily we climb back on the bus with Cloverlea school, proud of our achievements on an exciting but scary day.

During the Cross Country season the Teles reading group have been working towards creating a movie to show the benefits of eating a healthy breakfast before you train for an event like cross country. We were specifically working on using a variety of camera angles and using different speeds for effect. The story line is based on 'Groundhog Day'. Well done guys - this looks great!
