Kids for Kids concert

On a cool night room three and Miss G with Miss McLoughlin went to the Kids for Kids Concert at Manukau, but we got dropped off from our mum’s and dad’s.

When we got dropped off we went to this little room where all of the kids that were in kids for kids played. Rachel and I with some other girls were playing kucklebones, we had lots of fun there but then Dina said “we only have 10 minutes” we started to get ready but I was nervous.

We did a little bit of warm up following Dina and listened to what she said. After that we had to go to our line that we were put in. I was a bit shy. After that Dina went to say a few words to the Audience.

We had to sing our first song, I was really happy because our first song was a good start. Next we had to sing the other songs that we learnt.

After that we had half time and ate a snack then we had to go back on stage. We had four more songs to go and then we were done. We sang all our songs and then Miss G had to lead us to our mum’s and dad’s.

I went home with my friend Rachel. I was proud of myself and it was a lovely night and fun too. We were all happy and we did alright with our singing too on that night.

Music evening

On Thursday evening the whole school came to Saint Pius X musical evening. Everyone was invited to the hall to watch the school perform in front of the people. We began with the sign of the cross than we did a prayer from room 2 singing ‘God is love’. After that we have to say the sign of the cross in our own words.

After all the classes performing it was room three’s turn we sing ‘Puppet on a string’ first and then ‘Somewhere out there’. When we were singing ‘Puppet of a string’ I was nervous but I kept on looking at my mum so I don’t get nervous anymore.

It came to our other song, I was kind of happy to sing that song because sometimes it makes people cry. After all the class had performed in front of the people we sing the last song which was Sister Act’s song.

When we had done everything we went home ready for the next day of school.

Cross Country

On Friday 24 August, it was a bright and sunny day for St Pius X catholic school to have their cross country. The teachers were there to help the little ones to go the right way in their X country course. Parents were watching the little kids running, and cheering for them too. The 9 year olds were sitting up and cheering for them while we waited for their turn to go.

After the little kids cross country it was time for the big kids turn. We had to wait for our turn because it was from the 13 year old then the 12 year old and down from there. I was a bit sweaty went I was waiting for the 10 years olds turn.

When it came to the 10 year olds turn I was nervous, but luckily the boys went first then the girls. Miss G said to the boys “ready, go”, they ran and ran. Next up it was the girls turn and Miss G said “ready go”. I run as fast as I could and once I got down the hill I was puffing and I was tired. I saw the 10 year old boy walking and talking to each other so I just run past them. Even though I was tired I still tried to keep up with my age and ended up coming first.

When we had done our cross country course we had a little talk with our friends. After that Miss G said to us to say to ourselves “well done me” and we all did. Although I was tired of running I had a good day. The whole school did and what an awesome day we had from God, Fantastic.
