Last night I went to a dance prize giving. I got loads of certifactes and 1 trophy. The trophy I got was a town branch class prize. Town branch means that it is out of pakuranga, ellrisle and st helliers. I get to keep this trophy. Not like the other big trophy's. I am so proud of myself for getting this trophy. But hopefully next year I will get one of those big trophy's.
The Just4Kids festival is happening next year in July in Whangamata and it looks fabulous! A festival Just for Kids?? I wonder when the adults festival one will happen?? :)
As part of this they have a dino character who is helping them out as the official mascot. Problem is that he doesn't have a name - poor thing! So head along to the website here and enter in the competition to give him a name.
In room 25 every one read a pome called Jabberwockay and we all chose one thing from the pome and we made a drawing and then died it and i did the Tum Tum Tree and it has got a big tummy and it is bad and not nice...
Today is Mrs Byrds last day at Elm Park School. We are all sad about her leaving and have got some special things for her! We will all miss her terribly, but when she has gone we will get used to having no third teacher! She will miss us terribly as well. Mrs Byrd will make a GREAT teacher in the future!!!
This week in reading we have been Reading a poem called The Jabberwocky. We had to think about what one of the characters looked like and draw it. Then we had to go over the out line and then colour it. After, we put dye on it. I did the Jub-Jub Bird. Here is a picture of it!!

As I walked towards Vector Arena for the I Love The Islands concert my feet tingled with excitement... they were getting ready to dance! 25 outstanding bands and singers in 1 night. From Elemeno P to Tim Finn to Bic Runga to Scribe... this one the one Kiwi music concert of the millenium!
10,000 people crowded the Vector arena last night to raise money for Samoa. I Love The Islands concert raised just over a quarter of a million dollars that will all go to helping rebuild Samoa after the tsunami.
The acts were amazing and the crowd was buzzing. Everyone was amped up for a fantastic night and were rearing to go. Oscar and Tu were the MC's for the night and they kept everyone on their toes and laughing in the tiny spaces between each act. They even brought the All Blacks on stage - I had to take a photo of them for Miss T! The most captivating acts of the evening for me were Elemeno P and Che Fu. But the double ending of the evening would have to be the ABSOLUTE highlight. Scribe vs Savage for a battle to end all battles! Facing off on one stage, for one night, these 2 MC's showed NZ hip hop in it's finest form! From 'Swing' to 'We Cannot Be Stopped' these artists went 1 for 1 with all their best songs. Just when we thought the night was over they introduced Neil and Tim Finn for the finale!!
