Room 14 are very excited! The Hamilton Press newspaper got wind of our amazing Field of Remembrance that we have created, and came to interview us today all about it! Jeff the reporter interviewed Mrs Gunn about what we did and her family connections to Gallpoli, and then he talked to Leah about her family and the wars different members of her family have been to. Then he took this cool photo of 4 of our classmates with some props M Peachy found for us! We should be in next weeks edition of The Press. Keep an eye out!

Yesterday we made crosses for our field of remembrance. We had to get a box delivered of wood,stickers of poppy flowers,nails and double sided tape.We had to make sure the two holes were at the bottom of the big piece of wood and then put the poppy flower sticker at the top of the wood then we had to put the doubled sided tape under the sticker and then we had to peel of the top and stick the small piece of wood on and put the sticker of the people who died in world war 1 of Gallopli. We did this because it has been 100 years so the world war one of Gallopli. And to remember the people who sacrificed their life for us to live free with no other countries telling us to do this and do that. Our field of remembrance is going in the press news paper. From Jack and Shelby.

We did so much stuff like:
tree climbing, swimming, kyaking, fun games, BMXing, achery, shooting, abseiling, rock climbing, and caving. I liked rock climbing the most because I made it up every single wall.

Only one sleep to go until Room 14's big adventure out to Camp Karakariki! We are beyond excited and can't wait for it to be the morning so we can set off. Here is a photo of our sleeping gear! Wow! it's so much! Can you imagine how much gear we will have tomorrow when we all bring our gear bags?! lets hope we can fit it all onto the trailer!
Most of us are looking forward to caving and the delicious food the most. Most of us are nervous about the abseiling and being away from our families and think these two things will be our greatest challenges.
We will update you on how we went in a weeks time. Wish us ;uck!

Today was our swimming sports day! The whole syndicate headed down to Te Rapa pools dressed in our house colours. We swam our very best and many of us achieved our personal bests and tried really hard. Mrs Gunn was very proud of us. At the end we had our class relays. We swam as fast as we could, but Room 12 and 15 beat us at the end. Coming third was still something to be proud of. Here are some photos from the day:
