Our mufti day


On this beautiful Thursday, it is our mufti day for lent.  We got to wear anything and we had to bring a gold coin.  The money is to pay for us wearing different clothes than our school uniform.  With this money, we can help other families who will need support.  We also learnt in class about almsgiving where we can help people who are in need. 
Lend a hand, let's make a difference!!!

Happy Easter Room 4 Glen Innes School

This week we are learning about Easter. We have been learning about Jesus dying on the cross for our sins. 

We also learnt that it is not about chocolates and easter eggs but about the life of Jesus and the sacrifices he made.

Our class enjoyed making an Easter card for Room 4 at Glen Innes School. 
Meela is colouring her easter egg.

 Annabelle is colouring hers too.


Jaden is cutting off our pictures.

A Day to Remember

By Preston.

Last week on Tuesday, it was my 6th birthday but I slept at my Nana and Poppa's house. My cousin was there too. She lives far far away from our house. My cousin always lets me go on her phone. She also has a big television. She always wants me to sleep with her because I'm her best friend.

She has a boyfriend and I am always excited to be with her and her boyfriend.  The next morning, Mum and Dad came to take me home. They bought me a guitar for my birthday. I was always allowed to go to the movies when it is my birthday. 

I had fun with my family on my special day. I got my favourite cake too, a chocolate cake.


Our Assembly

At Assembly, the whole school were there. Some of our parents were there too. We felt a little shy because we had to dance in front of the whole school. 
At the end of it, we were all excited because we heard them clapping their hands. Room 3 did a great job hosting it. Christopher, Crystallani and Pauliasi received a certificate from Mr. Coakley.

This afternoon, we all went to the hall for our Duffy Role Model Assembly. We started with the sign of the cross in Tongan and our school prayer. 

Our quest speaker was Michel Mulipola. He shared with us his comic books and his favourite wrestlers. 

We were also excited to get 2 Duffy books to take home. We will read during the school holidays.

Our new home

Our new home 
by Jaden


When I went to my new home, I was super excited. I ran inside to check it out. My room is upstairs. The kitchen is downstairs with another bedroom. 

I looked around and I especially liked the sitting room because it is huge with super space for my toys and my family gatherings.

I am glad, I have a new home.

Day out

by Meela


One sunny day, me and my family went to the park for a picnic. I had a donut and some juice.  We played with my sisters at the flying fox. Then we also played at the big swing with my Mum. She pushed me really high and I wanted to get off. 

I had fun at the park with my family.

Teeth Brushing in Ruma Wha

ARE'NT WE LUCKY TO BRUSH OUR TEETH AT SCHOOL EVERY DAY?


Talofa and Greetings from Ruma Wha. We brush our teeth every day, when we finish our fruits after lunch. Our teacher gives us a little bit of toothpaste on our finger and we put in onto our toothbrush. 

We keep our toothbrush safe and clean in a silver steel container. We are doing this, so we can keep our teeth clean and have less cavities. We are all happy to brush our teeth 3 times a day or more.

A Kitten for the King


Hi Room 4 at Glen Innes School

Good morning Room 4, we designed some pictures of the King yesterday with Mrs. Collins. 
We have just read the story and we are excited to share with you our pictures. It is an interesting story to see a young king and getting a kitten with spots. 
King Ethelred is acting like us when we are sick, most times we do not want to stay in bed.  Thank you for sharing this amazing story with us Room 4.

OUR SOUL FRIEND DAY

We started the day with a whole school mass. At the mass, we offered it for our friends who died in Christchurch last Friday. Fr Felise shared with us, that it is very important, we respect and love everyone for we were all created by God. 
 After mass, we had shared lunch with our soul friends. Room 5 were kind enough to host us and Room 1. We had lots of food to share with each other.
 After lunch, everyone at the whole school had 2 minutes at 1.32pm to be silent to show our respect to our 50 brothers and sisters who have fallen in Christchurch. Every single one of us were so quiet. We pray that their souls will be with God.
We all prayed for our friends and families in Christchurch today and for our soul friend at school too.
KIA KAHA EVERYONE ESPECIALLY OUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS IN CHRISTCHURCH.

Dan, the dragon


Dan is a skinny smart dragon. He looks funny because he's got yellow wings, pink body and he breathes out fire. He's got night vision scary eyes and purple dots to scare little children like me. Dan can fly up to the sky at night  and when it's sunny at day time, it cannot fly. 

When he's hungry, he can eat any meat or fish around his area. He is friendly to people when he's not hungry.  When he eats lots of food, he grows taller but not fatter.  

We hope that Dan was here to protect us and to save the people in Christchurch.

PAPER DOLLS FOR CHRISTCHURCH - KIA KAHA!!!



 This is Room 4's learning for Christchurch. Yesterday, we learnt and shared how we feel that everyone in our class is a family. 

We did some art with Julia's paper doll template to remind us of who we are in New Zealand.

We also learnt that when we stand together as a family, we will help ourself to learn, and help each other to grow happily. 

We are made of different cultures but we are one as KIWIS. We will look after each other in class and at school.

When we are happy, we will help to rebuild ourselves as true christians and faithful New Zealanders.
