England Vs Australia

Saturday afternoon was so hot so I walked over to the swimming pools and had a nice swim. When I got back home, I joined the family while they were watching the Rugby League Word Cup Finals. It was Australia against England. At the end I was so excited I jumped up and down like a kangaroo because Australia beat England and they have become Champions.

Ruapotaka's Athletics Day

Tuesday morning was hot and sunny. Athletics day was just a corner away, and everyone had tried their very best to become a super rapid athlete. As the day went on everyone was warmed up and ready to commence. 'GO!' Mrs Peterson shouts for all the runners to begin the race. Throughout the races, everyone had gained energy, and some had lost energy. When it was time for the year 8's to run, I switched on to focus mode. As soon as Mrs Peterson said, "Go!" I accelerated my speed at the beginning therefore I ended up receiving 1st place for 100 metre sprint. I'm super proud of myself!!

Film Festival

On Wednesday, the Manaiakalani Schools advanced to the Hoyts Cinemas at Sylvia Park. Mrs Peterson had divided Room 12 students to sit with a Room 1 student. As soon we arrived there, we proceeded to the Cinemas. Once we got up to the stairs we walked to Cinema 3 and found a little area for Ruapotaka School. Our movie came up next as St Pius was finishing up their movie, as it commenced, I was very proud to have our movie seen by other Manaiakalani schools.

Everyone's movies was so AMAZING!! but apparently our movie was rated as the top movie created for the Manaiakalani Movie Festival 2017. When we got back to school we had some positive feedback from bus drivers and teachers.

Otahuhu Parade!!

On Tuesday, Otahuhu town centre was full of Tongan flags. Most of the parents climbed on cars and commenced to dance. Later on into the evening some Samoan cars showed up out of nowhere. Most of the Tongans surrounded the Samoan flag and then they started celebrating together. Once the Tongans had moved out off the way, all the Tongans pushed and shoved the car. Anyways, after the Tongans had finished their session with the Samoan car, the Tongans started running up and down the road like horses. A few hours later the Tongans decided that they were tired from all their dancing so they travelled back home and had a rest.

Tonga🔴 vs Scotland🔵

7:30 pm, on the dot, the game has started!! As the commentators say, this game is Men vs Boys. Soon as Tonga received the ball, they had ran it straight to the Scotland forward pack. The Scotland team had a good defence line, but Tonga had a good attack line. Minute by minute, Tonga kept and kept on scoring. After half time, the score was 38-0 to Tonga. Everyone had gone crazy. As soon as the game finished, Tonga had beaten Scotland (who was in 4th place in the whole League scoreboard) 50-4. Apparently Tonga is now in 4th place.

Labour Weekend 🔴

On Monday, my family and I had a wonderful lunch at Botanic Garden. Later on the day my brothers had arrived from their training and joined us. After our lunch we took a hike around the beautiful areas in the Botanic Garden. "Mum, can we get a nice cold ice cream after this?" I said with dullness. As we reached our final location I was so excited because it was nearly ice cream time. After the day ended my phone ended up having over 200 photos.


Every interval and lunch, the boys from room 12 will always scurry to the basketball court and set up teams for a basketball game. After we have set up our teams, we start of by checking to ball. Later on as time goes by, Dakbai and I had a quick game against each other. "Dakbai defends, Pate ankle breaks Dakbai", said Azahar and Jack. Later on, the bell had rung and Dakbai went for the last shot. As it was flying through the air, suddenly the shot was an air ball.
