The Friends Test

Me and My Friend Meg

If you were killed, I wouldn't be at your funeral... because I'd be in jail for killing the person who killed you!!!! We are true friends. We ride together, we die together. Send this to everybody you care about, including me if you care. See how many times you get sent this. I want you to know that you are an amazing friend till by death and forever. If I don't get this back, I understand, but I have a game for you. Once you read this letter, you must send it to fifteen people including the person who sent it to you. If you get at least three back, you are loved. Nobody knows how important some thing is until they lose it. Tonight, right at 12:00, the person you love will realize they love you. Then at 1:00 to 2:00, something is going to happen to you so be ready for the shock of your life. If you break this cabin you will have bad luck. With love copy and send this to the 15 prettiest girls or nicest guys you know. If you don't you will turn ugly in one year (Just kidding your always pretty). If you get three back, then dang your cute :)

Methanex Maths Spectacular 2014

Our Methanex Maths Team (Keifer, Joe, Meg and Kaiah).
On the 29th of August it was the Methanex Maths Spectacular. There was lots of different schools competing from all around New Plymouth.  In the first 5 minutes it was a very tight score. Our team was coming 2nd and only 10 points away from 1st. After another 5 minutes we were coming 3rd and slowly becoming in last place. But we kept our hopes up and made our way back up the ladder. In the end we got 10th. Sadly 10th doesn't stand for 1st, 2nd or 3rd but I'm still glad that we had fun and enjoyed ourselves.

The Missing Kayak

Kizoa slideshow: Kayak2014 - Slideshow
Yesterday afternoon thanks to a big supporter of our school, Sanfords, Auroa Primary School students were able to view the 'missing' trans Tasman Kayak of Scott Donaldson.   Scott Donaldson attempted to solo Kayak from Australia to New Zealand, however sadly after 83 days at sea he had to abandon his attempt.   Since then he's been looking for his Kayak, including searching for it extensively, but being unable to locate it.  Yesterday it was found, close to Auroa Primary School.  It was recovered yesterday and brought into the school for everyone to see.  

AKO Currency

This is a slide show of our AKO currency questions. There is a different variety of questions about currency like... different symbols, who uses peso and many more. I made this slide show with Dayna and Leila. I hope you enjoy our slidshow.

Sport, Sport, Sport!!!

Sunny weather shone over the Auroa School courts on Sunday. A very short game of tennis was displayed by Kaiah and Durann. They were so evenly matched that during the whole game on one got any points at all. But on the basketball Side of things Kaiah got a few goals and so did Durann. They practiced passing, dribbling and everything in between but after a while the whole family played the game around the world. There was so much suspense in the air that everyone could have won. Until Lee passed the whole family and won the entire game.

Water Filled Fun

The camera is flashing in my face, wind blowing in my hair, suddenly water splashing on my arms.  Can you guess what we are doing?  Only throwing water balloons.

I know throwing squishy, cold, water filled balloons doesn’t seem like much fun, but for our family it was.  We were missing the board and making water fly everywhere.  The balloons were bouncing all over the place!  It was like we were inside of a washing machine.

While Durann was getting balloons thrown at his face, I was planning a very icey plan.  I filled up the bucket with water and you can guess what happened next.  Yes I poured the water all over him.  He was completely saturated.  But all fun comes to an end.

We had fun making the video and used our creative minds to make it, create it and edit it.  I can’t wait until we make another video.
