Ripper Rugby

Every Friday before lunch room 19 goes to ripper rugby. On our first day of ripper rugby (tag) our instructor asked if any of us knew how to play tag or touch we said yes. So instead of him teaching us some skills we went straight to game.

My groups team leader was Jonty and we were the black team, there were three teams so one team had to stay off until a team had got two tries. We versed the white team, in the first round of games I got one try but the other team had got two, so we had to go off. Then they lost so we came back on.

When I finally got the ball I stepped Ervin, span past Tracey and Cruz and ran for the goal line I run as fast as I could because I was running from my goal line to theirs but luckily I got the run away try, I was so happy and relived because I thought I was going to get tagged.

When we left I wanted to play again. I really can't wait until this Friday.

The Year 7&8 Social

It was a quiet Thursday night and tonight was the big night. It was the year 7&8 SOCIAL!!!The theme for the social was 'Glow In The Dark'. As I was getting ready for social I was feeling really excited and nervous at the same time because this is the first time that I've ever been to a social.

It was finally time to go. When I walked into the school grounds I saw my friend

Cael, we said hi and started going towards the hall. I gave my ticket to the people at the door and went inside. There were lights flashing everywhere, people were wearing glow sticks around their wrists and necks. Everyone was dancing to the music, then the people running it said it was time for the dougie competition.

Mostly the boys started to dougie, jerk and shuffle. Only about 4 girls dougied, The person who won the dougie competition was De'Vyne.

When everyone was getting into the music Tanielu said it was time for suppa. As soon as everyone ate their sausages and drank they drinks we went back into the hall. When it came to an end everyone was feeling sad that we couldn't stay any longer.

That was a very cool social. I can't wait till next year, I hope the next one will be as good as this one.
