Senior Assembly.

Our Assembly, was last week Friday and being the Seniors of the School we thought we would be a little bit creative and showcase our assembly through the use of videos. 

It was fun putting it all together. It was the last one for the year and we made sure we had FUN for the last time together.

Confidence Drink

This film was planned and produced by Nathaniel, Dominic Cherish, Pulotu & Andre. 

They saw something that is very common in School with being shy in front of the class. They thought about a drink that would help students gain the confidence they need to speak confidently in front of a large audience. 

Enjoy the Film "Confidence Drink"

Connecting with Others

This film was created by Paige and it is called "Connecting with Others".
Her actors in the film were Juan, Brooklyn, Anika, Nadia. 

This film is about Connecting with other's, even with other people who you do not get along with. Being able to stand up for others who aren't able to speak up.

Hope you enjoy their awesome acting skills.

It's okay to be Me

This film was planned and produced by Kalani Teura. 

The actors in his film were Steven, Lance, Reece and Kalani himself.
The film is about a student who is being bullied for being himself. He goes through a tough time in School because of the way he chooses to behave and portray himself in society.
It is an emotional video that unfolds the disadvantages of being different and being free to express himself without being judged.

It is a good watch :)

Rm 12 Selfie

Last Friday, we had such a surprise our way. A few of our students were awarded with certificates to appreciate all their hard work during the week. We were also shocked about not receiving just the 'On the Time' award this week but also the 'Attendance Award'. So when we came back to class, Miss Siale wanted to capture the moment because she wanted us to remember every time we were praised. She always reminded that we deserve the absolute best, whether it is in our learning or in life. 

Miss Siale's Minions :)
