Tennis practise

TENNIS! Who loves this sport? Well during the past few weeks, Room 18 have been learning how to play this awesome activity, with an awesome instructor.

Friday of last week, we went to the courts near the teachers lunch room at Pt England school, and practised how to play tennis. Just waiting not so patiently to play this sport, we went and prepared ourselves. To play tennis, we had to use rackets to hit the tennis ball, and we needed a net to hit the ball over it.

While we were learning different techniques, we all had to get into partners! One person had to serve the ball and one had to hit it. When it was time to swap over the person who served was the hitter and so on! We all had experienced how to play tennis!

Experiencing how the game of tennis went, there became tough challenges. There was excitement going on and many more! As we participated in this fantastic sport, there were Kings and Queens of the courts. The amount of minutes we spent with the coach was enjoyable.

The key point to learning tennis, was to experience it and to have an awesome time! It was so GREAT!

Trip to Huntley

During the two weeks of school holidays, my family and I went to Huntley for a family reunion. Packing our clothes into our suitcases, we ran into the car and went too our destination. As soon as we got there, we all gathered our luggage together, to put into the bus.

While the bags and suitcases were getting placed into the bus, we said some good byes to the rest that weren’t coming. As soon as we got onto the bus, it left! Just waiting not so patiently, all of us were bored so we fell asleep. Waking up, we all started laughing and all started to sing!

At last, WE ARRIVED IN HUNTLEY! Hopping out of the big vehicle, some very special people welcomed us to their Marae. They were singing in praise that we had finally made it! After a very special welcome, all of us went into the Marae and made our beds.

We were playing all kind of sports, and watched some t.v. There was food prepared for us and much more! I really enjoyed the first day at the Whare Noho! It was great to meet some new people that I had never met before!
