Tamaki Int. - Blog Numbers/Update

A dual day of numbers as the tamakitoday blog celebrated its 2,000 visitor yesterday our work on teachertube received its 8,000 view! Well done students! We are thrilled by these numbers!

One of the things that was pointed out to me was in terms of audience how powerful this is. The students have the potential to share their work with thousands of others, in a world wide audience...

This week on Thursday we had our School Volleyball teams competing in the Eastern Zone finals at Waitakere Stadium. The Boys Captained by Bill had a good day overall against some tough opposition. The Girls team defeated Sommerville Intermediate and Farm Cove Intermediate in pool play and made it to the semi-finals. The Girls had to take on Bucklands Beach Intermediate and lost by a single point before being defeated for 3rd/4th by Pakuranga Intermediate School. Well done.

Our Under 55kg Girls and Open Grade Girls compete against the best teams in Auckland at the Interzone Finals tomorrow. They take the field at Cornwall Park in Greenlane from 9:00am.
We will have a team on site to film and have the results tomorrow. We're fielding one of our strongest teams in recent memory in a competition where we've never progress passed the semi-final stage. The weather is forecast to be showers tomorrow but the tournament should be going ahead.

The much delayed 2008 Girls Interzone (Auckland Champion of Champions Finals) will now take place next Monday, September 22nd at Point England Reserve (right next to Point England School). This will consist of the top five Auckland teams at Under 55kg level and Open Grade level. The tournament will run from 10:00am to 2:00pm or so and Tamaki Intermediate are the Eastern Zone representatives by virtue of our Zone win in June. This tournament is the elite competition for Girls Rugby in Auckland and our team will be looking to match our legendary 2004 team who were undefeated on their way to the title!

Congratulations on all the entertainment and interesting work you have published via this blog this year. You deserve all the visitors you have had because Tamaki Today is such a good read/view. This week I showed your blog at a Principals' conference in the South Island and they were very impressed with your work too.
Keep up the great blogging for the rest of 2008.
