Our rugby 8 champions.

This term our year 8 boys became our year 8 rugby champions. They have won there rugby game against 30 or more teams. Thieve had played there games in toranga it was a bit of a struggle for there families but then , a great success they had accomplished.

They had been coached by the wonderful miss
va'a fusu'anga she had been a big help for the boys. As they got welcome backed Mr Burt, couldn't make it to see them arrive. They had alot of highlights to share with the rest of the school. We could all see that the big smiles on their faces meant that they had alot of fun. Next year I hope they try their hardest and win again.

Learning how to play aussie rules.

This term every Thursday we have been playing Aussie rules with our instructors Megan and Melisa.They are very kind and have allot of manners they have been teaching for only a few years,and this year they are teaching us how to play, Rugby Aussie rules. Not every day we have the same instructors we can have a girl and a boy or just both girls.

We have learnt Nealy all the rules how to play and what not to do. Further than the rules we have learnt how to kick with an Aussie ball and hand pass. Here's one I remember - laces away from faces.

Kicking the ball was very hard in the beginning but keep practicing add you'll get it right. That was not the only thing we learnt we also learnt how to hand pass correctly. In the middle of practicing we had little games my favorite was bass ball with a rugby ball its kind of complicating to learn on the spot. That's all I wrote about so please leave a comment on my blog and leave your URL/Name so I can visit your blog.


A sneeze center is a part of the brain that not many people have heard of. If the inside of your nose gets a tickle, then the sneeze center alerts all the other muscles that work together to sneeze. Sneezing is a reflex. A reflex is where your body does something automatically and is something that you have no control over.

Sneezing is a way to get rid of bad things in your nose. These things might be bacteria, germs and other things. You also sneeze when you smell pepper that reason is because your body does not like the smell of pepper. when you see a bright light like the sun or a light bulb you feel like you are gonna sneeze. Actually 1 out of 3 people sneeze when they see a bright light. Those people are called "Photic Sneezers." Photic really is another word for light. Photic sneezing is something that you get from one of your parents because it is something that runs in one side of your family.

Can you open your eyes when you sneeze?
Some people can sneeze with their eyes open and some people can’t. Sneezing is a reflex and so closing eyes. We have no control on whether we close our eyes or not when they sneeze. Some people don’t have reflex, so when they sneeze then their eyes won’t close.

Sneezing is very good for you and your body because it removes things from your body like bacteria and germs. It also is good because it keeps the nostrils that carry the air from your nose to the lungs healthy. Sneezing makes your nose clear when you have a cold. If you used to hate sneezing, then I hope this has changed your mind.

RWC Opening Ceremony

The stars were lit up on a beautiful night at Eden park, sparkling high in the sky with fireworks making sounds like cannon balls firing. Fire works were created by a man named Guy Fork. He created them to blow up the English parliament. But these days we use them to celebrate Christmas, New Years and special events.

In the Opening ceremony the Maori introduction was really cool. They had amazing projection and heaps of lights and musical instruments. It was really creative how they made the two hammer sharks with all the people as one. As seen on the rugby world cup banner there are to maori shapes but secretly they are hammer sharks.

"GO ALL BLACKS" and good luck to all other teams around the world.
