Ms Richards

For the past 8 weeks we had a student teacher in our class. Ms Richards was learning to be a teacher so she came to our class to experience what it would be like to be a teacher of a year 7 & 8 class. She came from the university of Waikato. Last Friday was her last day with us so she made some dumplings and Chinese food from her culture.

Our Champion Boys.

Last week our year 8 boys went to a 7's rugby tournament called "Aims Games." It was held in Tauranga for one week. The boys came back the New Zealand Rugby 7's champions.

When they were down there the New Zealand 7’s was giving them some good advice . The best piece of advice was, if you want to win tournaments if to all ways be on defence.

That night I found out that the boys had taken out the tournament I was extremely happy for the boys, it is a great achievement, they made our school very proud.

Why is learning about people in the global community important?

Why is learning about people in the global community important?

I think it is important because we need to have good relationships with other countries. We can trade and exchange with them. World wide peace means to me not having wars, I think it is good to learn other languages of other countries because we can travel the world and know what they are saying and we can speak back to them, we can also speak to them if they are having trouble with something like maybe a product that we are selling and they don’t understand English. We can also learn other countries customs so we don’t offend them and start wars.
