Duffy Recount

On Monday the 23rd there was a Duffy Theatre performance in the hall. Most of St Pius X School was there but Room 7 wasn’t there because they were at League with Kouma.

There were people came and did a play about Duffy, hes a school boy who always wears a hat. There were 2 boys and 1 girl. One of the boys and the girl were from Samoa and the other boy was a Kiwi. The two boy’s went and got dressed into their costumes and the girl stayed while we played a Samoa game.

The name of the play the duffy theatre did was called “Duffy Loses His Words.” It was about when Duffy was telling his little brother Scruffy what happened yesterday in his book because he wrote it down when he lost his words.

It all started when he was sleeping, a bad guy came, his name was Votra he was a bad guy he had a toilet plunger on his head. Votra made Duffy be the director of a game called “Intergalatic Word Competition”. Votra had a competition with Lovely and they had to name lots of types of food. The one that got the most was the winner, Votra got angry because he lost. In the next round there was a girl called Rude. This time they had to say as many street words as they could. The audience helped Votra but he lost.
After that Duffy lost his words and Afi got the words back from Votra.

At the end of the show Tokilupe thanked the Duffy people for coming to our school. I liked the show, the best part for me was when Duffy got his words back, it made me feel happy and excited for him.

We all went back to class and then went outside for lunch.

Kids for kids Recount

“Clap clap clap YAY!” says the audience.

At night time on Friday the 13th of September it was the Kids for Kids Concert. Kids for kids is when children sing together from other schools. It was at the Life Convention Centre in Mangere.

There was Jackie Clarke who sang with us also Nathan King, there was a Funky Monkey guy too, his name is Chris Clarke. There was also a girl her name was Dayna. When we were at backstage crazy children were running around.

We had to wear coloured shirts and the boys wore shorts and girls had to wear skirts. We weren’t allowed to wear black and white because the lights were hot. When we got up I was nervous, we sat down and there was lots of schools. There was 15 rows, there was only 14 kids who represented St Pius X, we were on rows 3 and 2.

We only sang half of the songs and had a 20 minute break and in the 20 minute break we had cookies, chocolate and played games which were Monkey Barrell and Knuckle Bones.

When we got back up on the stage we sang the rest of the songs then we finished and we had to go backstage. I felt happy when I was singing. We had to wait for our Mum and Dad to come and my Mum came and my dad was waiting in the car.

Filming Reflection

In term 4 we are having the Makanalani Film Festival at Hoyts in Sylvia Park. The Makanalani Film Festival is when you make a movie and show it off at the movies. The films have to be 3 minutes long, if it’s more than 3 minutes long the people at the movies will cut the rest of the movie off. My classroom room 3 at St Pius X Catholic school is making a movie with the topic of success.

First we split up into 4 different groups one was sports, another was music, goals, and the last one was subjects.
The group that I was in was music. We had a director, actors, and a camera operator, a director is the boss, camera operator is the person who films it and the actors are the people in the film.

I was an actor, the main character was my friend Seuati, he had to learn how to play the guitar. There was a song in the background but I’m not going to tell you it because I don’t want to ruin the suprise… is such a good song it fits with the movie. The other movies  have something to do with success even my movie has it as well. Thats all I am going to say, you will have to watch the movie to see how we did.

St Pius X Feast Day

In the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit, Amen. On Friday 23rd of August 2013 St Pius X School celebrated St Pius X Feast day. We all had a whole school mass in the church, we were singing beautiful songs and listening to students speaking.

After that the whole school mass we went to the hall and had cake, the cake was banana cake with cream on top, the cake was so delicious. Next we had morning tea and after morning tea we went back to the hall because there was a concert.

Room 1 and 2 sang a song I don’t what the song was called but it was so good, we all clap for room 1 and 2. After room 1 and 2 was room 4, they were singing just a single candle and they were awesome singing. Everyone clapped loudly for room 4.

Room 5 came up and sang Paradise, Moto was the solo, he was so good and so was the rest of room 5. Room 3 sang Haere Mai and Something in the water. There were two soloists, they were Ezra and Tokilupe. Ezra was the soloist for Haere Mai, and Tokilupe was soloist for Something in the water, everyone clapped.

Next was room 6 singing Mali Mali Mai with the ukuleles. They were so good and after their performance was room 7 singing Let it go and Moving Sun, also an instrumental song, they were good.

After the concert it was big lunch, next we went back into the hall and saw a woman who plays the euphorium. The euphorium is a rare instrument, it costs lots of money. She played a little bit for us and took a picture of the whole school.

After lunch we went to the courts to see the basketball tournament. First it was my team Tuis vs Keas, Keas was so good but my team Tuis won. Next was Geckos vs Kiwis, some of my friends were playing, it was a hard game but Geckos won. It was loud the cheering because each time when one team got a score the whole teams say “YAY!”.

We didn’t see the last two teams play basketball because we ran out of time so they played the following Friday. It was so awesome when we all went home we all had a smile on our faces.
