Robotics 2015

On Saturday all of the Auroa School Robotics teams travelled to Whanganui for the official Junior Robocup Competition. When you compete you can choose if you want to do a theatre performance or a search and rescue performance. All of the Auroa teams did the theatre category and only had to compete against each other. In the end the Robros (Shreck performance) came in 3rd place, the Udder Budders (Carnival performance) came in 2nd place and JKLM (Mission impossible performance) came in 1st place! The Udder Budders and JKLM both get to carry on to Nationals all the way down in Christchurch on the 12th of September and hopefully win Auroa a new trophy or two.

Going to Whanganui

Last Monday me and my family anxiously travelled to Whanganui. We were very worried about if were would make it there because recently before a big flood came and wiped out most of Whanganui. On the way there we saw many land slides and paddocks full of muddy water. Also the roads were limited to one lane only because part of the road got pulled apart. Once we had arrived at Whanganui we were very pleased and relieved that we were still in one piece. Across the bridge on the other side of Whanganui, Kowhai park was full of dirty water and sewage, so was parts in town and the underground car park of the warehouse.
