Room 18 have HIRED!

We know that a lot of you have been waiting to hear the outcome of our search for a great teacher for Room 18.  If you have watched our advertisement here, then you will know the kind of teacher we are after. Well, we can make an announcement, here on Room 18's blog!  After way too many people ignoring our advertisement and sending Mr Burt applications on forms and paper, someone finally 'GOT us' and sent the application WE were after.  Check out Miss Tito's video....

So you can see why, when we had watched that, we all said "That's the teacher for Room 18!"  We were pretty busy on Friday with our farewell party for Mrs Lagitupu, but we took a few minutes with a camera to film some messages to Miss Tito to let her know we like her application.
Mr Burt told us today that Miss Tito will be coming to Pt England in time to start term 3 with us.  In the meantime we have Mr Jacobsen as our teacher (remember him from this movie?), so look out for some good times being posted here...
Room 18
PS. Miss Tito gave us permission to publish her video if you were wondering!

MTV Dance Stars

We didn’t realise how many talented dancers we had in our class until we put together an MTV video.

The song is called ‘1, 2 Step’ by Ciara. Most of the dancing was unrehearsed, and we quickly discovered that there were some pretty talented dancers in our class.

Watch Jacob and Bobbi Grace amaze us with their krumping moves, and see Blessing with his cool flips. You might see them starring in a real music video in the future!

Well done to Cruz, Leoden and Destiney for filming all the footage.

Riverside Club Rocks!

Riverside club is held every Wednesday between 3:30 and 5:00pm throughout the school year.

Take a look at Sela’s interview with Mr Burt:

Q: When did it start?
A: Riverside club started in August 1991.

Q: How long have you been a part of it?
A: Since the day it began. It was started by me and Mrs Burt, and Mr and Mrs Liddle.

Q: Why is it called the Riverside club?
A: It’s called the Riverside club partly because I live on Riverside Avenue, but also because when the club started, it was in the Scout hall on Riverside Avenue.

Q: What gave you the idea to start the Riverside club?
A: Well we noticed that there were a lot of kids who didn’t have much to do after school, especially when there were no winter sports on. So we thought that we’d start a club that could give people fun things to do once a week after school, and that they could do camps in the holidays.

Q: Where do you get all your game ideas from?
A: Well Sela, two places really. One is from experience and friends and from reading books. I’ve acquired those games over a long, long time. The other place I get them from is, I make them up!

Sela: Thank you Mr Burt for your time.
Mr Burt: You’re very welcome.

C.R.E. with Mrs Clarke

C.R.E. stands for Christian Religious Education. Mrs Clarke teaches C.R.E. to the Senior School for half an hour every Friday from Term 2 to Term 4.

Every lesson is about a story from the bible. We always learn something important from the lessons such as a moral of the story, or a message about how we can become better Christians.

We really appreciate Mrs Clarke for teaching us more about the bible.
Well done to Sela, Cruz and the team for putting this clip together.
