Our Syndicate Assembly- By Julianne.

On the last Monday before the Easter break, Room12 presented a syndicate assembly.

 First we started of with a lovely song called This Is Me by: Kesha.

 After we sang it we played our little game called "Syndicates got talent." The contestants from each class were Aleki and Ong Minout from Room 9 who danced to a song called Jump, the contestants from Room 10 were Unita and Reality who sang Flashlight by Jessie J and then, when it was finally our turn our presenters Katrina and Pupuke sang a lovely Maori song called Tiaho Mai Ra. 

Then the whole Syndicate finished of with our school song♡

River Talks- By Konzay

Two weeks ago some of the Ruapotaka senior student kids went walking down near Tamaki College. The  presenters  were talking about the river  because people put dirty things in the river and our fish and eels won't survive the pollution.  We learned lots of information from the presenters and the audience  loved what they saw and heard.

Vanilla Muffins- By Tupouseini

The ingredients we used to make our muffins was one cup of sugar, four eggs and one and a half cup of S.R.F (Self Rising Flour).

To begin with we whisked the eggs and the sugar until it was the consistency of light and fluffy cream. This time I made sure not to over whip the muffin. After leaving it to cook in the oven for approximately 20 minutes it was over baked and it was burnt but I took off the burnt pieces.

It was yummy!!

Making Mac and Cheese at Foodtech- By Malia

It was another day at food tech. We were making Macaroni and Cheese. We added herbs and all other spices and seasonings. It was like we were professional chefs. We tasted our food and it was actually an excellent dish. Most of the other people liked it as well. It was extremely easy for Riiana and myself to make. I'll be making this at home.

One skill I have learnt for this week is how to dice and slice an onion.

River Talks- By Pupuke.

On the 15th of March half of Room 12 went to a very special and exciting event. We had to walk all the way to the  Omaru River. We were surrounded by other schools like St Helliers and Pt England. We were told the story of it and why we can't go in the water. The water was too dirty and full of germs and unsafe to swim or fish or boat in there. Then we moved to a different place and a woman talked about how we can keep the river clean and what goes in the water from our homes. The extra water from our home go into our rivers and ocean. The bad water goes to the sewers. She showed us some pipes where the bad water can sometimes get mixed up with our fresh water.

Cooking at Technicraft- By Tyra

Today is our fourth day here at cooking tech down at Tamaki College. I really enjoyed cooking with my new partner Sia. When we finally finished cooking this tomato soup we cleaned our kitchen. Eventually we were able to try out our tomato soup. When I put the spoon of tomato soup and rice into my mouth it was really delicious. The only issue we had with our soup was that it was a bit sour because we didn't have enough brown sugar in it.
