2008 Memories of St Pius X School

Check out our filming skills that we used to make some MTV's. We have had a bit of fun this last week of school and have gotten into groups and made some mini lip-sinking videos!!! If you come to our blog over the next 6 weeks we will have a new one each week with a memory recount of someone's time in Room 6.

In Room 6 I have experienced a wonderful, focusing year of learning. There have been so many special occasions that room 6 have participated in! There were many subjects that room 6 and I enjoyed. There have been all sorts of learning happening in room 6 that will help us when we are older in the future.

The Jump Rope For Heart was my highlight for Term 1. St Pius X students had all brought a gold coin to donate to the heart foundation. It was part of our fitness. We did a lot of skipping and running so it was a very tiring day. We ended up raising a lot of money so we were very proud. There were many activities to complete and enjoy so everyone was proud that they accomplished such a fun but tiring day.

We had an enthusiastic time in term 2with swimming lessons. My highlight was the 4 weeks of traveling to Sacred Heart College for our swimming lessons. We learnt all sorts of swimming skills and used a lot of swimming equipment. It was a great form of exercise and it helped us with our safety in the water. It also helped us to feel confident in the water. We even had free time in the water to play around and have relays and races.

Term 3 was an excellent term with camp at MERC. It was a very busy time with all sorts of activities such as canoeing, snorkeling, abseiling, archery and many more. We learnt to co-operate more and show sportsmanship to one another. We had an awesome experience and learnt heaps of information that would help us.

In term 4 I really enjoyed blogging. We looked at different schools in the Tamaki area and we enjoyed seeing what the Tamaki cluster schools had been up too. Also commenting on their pieces of work. We learnt how to comment positively and use interesting vocabulary. We also transfered our work onto our blog. I had a really fantastic time blogging and commenting. It helped us a lot with our movie making and with our literacy. We are actually very good at that!!

In Room 6 I have accomplished such a marvelous amount of work this year. I learnt so many things that I've never known before. I learnt to set my goals and achieve them with the virtues inside me. It has also made me a good role-model to the younger students. There have been many exciting things to learn and achieve and I will never forget my time here in Room 6.
