Media Studies

It was on the fourth day of Media Studies,and the year 6 were so excited. Just when the year 7 were about to leave, the year 6 had to stay behind and begin half of there Media Studies because it was nearly morning tea time.As soon as year 6 students were getting started and trying to think with there thinking caps, the year 7 and 8 students were about to leave we, Rm 6 had to sit on the mat.After that Miss.G told us what to do next after morning tea.

Straight after morning tea, she taught us, year 6 how to edit something on the computer. Later on each team had something to do like, taking pictures, recording and especially editing on the computer.

My team, the Power Shots had to take 2 more pictures.

Finally it was time to edit,it was kind of difficult to do but I got use to it.
While each of us, The Power Shots were still on our editing we had a little help from my friend, Angelica. At last we had finished after the bell rang.

Virtues Assembly

Out, we walked through the door after morning tea to the hall on Monday 2 August. We got settled in our positions, ready for the assembly to show everyone a new virtue.
To start off the assembly the whole school turned their faces to the projector,30 minutes with Rm6 6 and Poof popped out Fetuli telling us what the virtue was, but first a prayer from Waterlily at the Grotto standing next to the lovely Mary, and then it went back to Fetuli. The virtue is "RESPONSIBILITY!", Fetuli said "Over to you Rm 6", and that was when we performed our short acting for what the word Responsibility means.
When it had finished, the one that made one of my bones crack was Robertanna's group, a boy as a nana.Fetuli came up again and was surprised of what we did in 30 minutes with Rm 6. Emmanuel stood in front of everyone and asked Mr.Coakley to hand out the certificates for the good ones around the school, and after that Emmanuel told Mrs.Pole to do the Caught Being Good, for the people who got caught being wonderful.
It came to an end and everyone sang the virtue song together and Mrs.Williams dismissed some classes.
Everyone walked out the door with smiles on their faces...

The Duffy Theatre

To begin with a lovely warm day on the 20 July. Just when it was the afternoon and the clock struck 1, I was very excited about what was going to happen. It was the...... DUFFY THEATRE, I couldn’t wait to long so finally when it was 1:30 I jumped up and was ready to go to the hall.
When we got there I heard alot of people chatting while they waited for the show to begin. Once everyone was settled, at last, the show began. I heard sweet music coming from infront and 3 people came walking up for everyone to see.
Next the lovely actors introduced themselves, the names of the 3 actors were Tongs, Sam and Channel. Later on Sam started to look everywhere for Duffy.
With a hat jumping in the air, out jumped Duffy with his back facing the audience. Duffy walked up to Tongs and Channel and said “Hi” to them. They both tried to tell Duffy to turn but he didn’t know what was happening at the back of him.
Trying to tell him to turn around was a little bit hard for them and Duffy told them “What is all this ruckess?” So he just turned around. But when Duffy turned right around, he started questioning them.
Tongs and Channel then marched their bottoms back stage.
Laughter began coming from nowhere.
A big word showed right infront of Duffy’s face, it was called ‘Duffy’s Big O.E.”, we tried to figure out what it might be? “Ah” said Duffy,

“Shake,Shake” went the marackers, and out came 2 other people singing.
Eventually Tongs and Channel told Duffy to “Spiiin the Wheel”. Tongs spun Duffy around and Duffy spun to hard that he landed on the wall so hard that it looked like he was going to get a bruise in the middle of his forehead. Just when he landed on the wall he also landed on the ground. Duffy stood up and told someone to help him spin the wheel, he chose one person from the audience.
Fonuamotu a student from Rm1 stood up and made his way to the spinning wheel, Fonuamotu then stood next to the spinning wheel, and it looked like I was looking at him in the future when he was standing next to Duffy.
Duffy picked another person from the audience, and it was Fetuli a student from Rm 6.
Fetuli made her way to a medium sized box. Fetuli laid there waiting for something to happen. Duffy hoped that she was going to be alright. Channel told us some information about ‘Doctors and Nurses’, and that was when Duffy got worried.
Channel began the operation, suddenly I saw Tongs whispering into Fetuli’s ear. I was really eager because I wanted to know what Tongs was telling in Fetuli in her ear. First Channel needed a screw-driver, I was thinking, “Why would he use a screw-driver in a operation?”
Channel answered “We use this in Samoa”.
“Aaaaaahhh” screamed Fetuli, she was thumping her feet on the box.
I was very shocked it felt like I was going to faint, also I thought she was actually dying.
The operation was almost finished and they showed her brain.
Up stood the talented Fetuli, she walked up to Duffy, and Duffy was thinking if it was back in its place of they just put it there so it could fall off .
Now Duffy thanked Fetuli for being a lovely assistant, so for her good work she received an awesome book. The show now came to an end and everyone were very entertain by the show, that they wanted them to do it again.
“Stomp,Stomp” out walked the students back to their work, and off they went home, except for the Yr 7 and 8 netball girls.
