Tamaki Int. - Rugby Update Week Nine

Unfortunatly as we'd predicted early this week the rain that we'd been worried about since last week (last week its rained everyday with Monday being the clear day) forced the cancellation of the Girls Auckland Rugby Finals. We couldnt even manage the saving day because the fields will still be closed then... Next term we'll be rescheduling the Rugby Union for the first week back after the holidays (which start on Friday)... plus this is the last week for Zecillia... those of you who have been enjoying the 'Learn to Speak Samoan Video's' will be sad to learn that Zecillia who presents the videos is moving at the end of the week!

Tamaki Int. - Week Nine


The last week of term before New Zealand students have their term two holidays from 4th July until the 18th of July. These are some of the scheduled highlights for the last week of term...

Tuesday. This is the days our Open Grade Girls and Under 55kg Girls are to be competing in the Auckland Champion of Champions Rugby Union Finals. Whats more R6 are running the entire event. Unfortunatly we've had one of the biggest storms in a long time nation wide for the past seven days, although there's no scheduled rain for Tuesday the fields are currently under water (literally with surface water I checked them out myself on Sunday) and there is a good chance that the council may close the grounds meaning we'd have to postpone the tournament until Thursday or possibly even cancel it altogether (as the Boys Auckland finals were). We'll update this event by lunchtime Monday when a decision will have to be made, fingers crossed everyone!

Our School Netball teams continue their progress in the Tuesday night Netball competitions. We'll have a report from Moli live at the event this week.

Thursday. Our Girls Basketball team take on Sylvia Park School Mixed team in their final game of the term. The Girls are continuing to build towards the huge event for the year which is the AIMS tournament. This is the National Finals and Tamaki will be one of 13 teams competing for the honour. If you want more information on this tournament you can check out the tournament webpage on nzaimsport.co.nz Also on Thursday our Cook Island trip have thier fundraising night at the School, with the Quiz night competition.

Friday. Half way through the school year as its the end of the term. We have the End of Term Assembly, the presentation of the School House Shield to the best House for Term Two, combined House Sports for Y7/Y8, followed off by a final assembly at 2:30pm!

Tamaki Int. - Zubair Investigates: Tuck Shop

Zubair Investigates: The Tuck Shop
Im really proud of all the students involved in this one.

Last week in class R6 had a brainstorming session where we were looking at filming ideas for the end of term. As a teacher I thought that we might get some ideas but I was blown away by the quality of the ideas and how much we've improved since the start of the year!

Zubair and Vincent came up with a great idea.

A couple of weeks ago we covered in current events the new school tuck shop regulations that apply throughout New Zealand. Zubair said we should relate that to our Tuckshop and interview Jenny our tuckshop lady! What an awesome idea!

This is a pretty big issue at our school as our students generally dont eat healthy meals. We have a situation now (which you can clearly see in the interview) where the menu has changed considerably. Pies for instance can only be sold once every two weeks! Chips once a fortnight! This is a big chance for us, the students and the staff! Zubair hasnt interviewed before but I am really pleased with the effort and I think our viewers will find this interesting! Next week we will make a posting or a slideshow explaining the new menu and the restrictions that are now in place. There are also some secondary issues that need to be addressed. If you can't buy chips at school except once a fortnight, what about the bakery and the dairy immediately across the road from school? This is one of the issues that has really got our students thinking.

I think this is an issue that we will be addressing as on ongoing one. Congratulations to the students who were involved in filming the interview and we also have to thank Jenny for agreeing to be interviewed about this issue. Well done Zubair, Vincent and Evandah. It would be interesting to compare our situation with other schools in New Zealand and other schools internationally.

Tamaki Int. - Eastern Zone Finals 2008

The video in this game is the Eastern Zone Girls final for 2008. It couldnt have been anything less than the two best teams in the competition playing off against each other. In pool play Howick Intermediate had handed out to Tamaki Intermediate their first defeat in eight years! Howick's defence had been superb! In the final Tamaki was looking for a chance to seek revenge and claim their six consecutive Eastern Zone Girls Open Grade Title... at stake was a place in the Auckland Finals on July 1st as Champion. Could Howick defeat the title favourites? Could Tamaki turn arond the form and defeat Howick? This was filmed on June 17th at Dunkirk Reserve in Panmure by Evandah, Victor and Alex. Edited by Victor and commentary for the game was by Lucy, Tamakis fullback and Meliame Tamaki's Captain. Best game of the year.

Tamaki Int. - Blog Numbers

One of my favourite other Auckland Blogs is the Miss Signals EPS Blog. They've just celebrated 500 hits on their blog, and if you haven't checked out their blog you need to do so from our blogroll immediately!

That got me thinking about our numbers.
As of today we've had a total of 820 visitors to this page in three and a half months. We've also as most of you know got material thats on a number of video sites, teachertube being the main one. Our videos on teachertube have just clocked over 2,500 views. The most popular are the Samoan videos with 'Learn to Speak Samoan Lesson 2' just reaching 600 views. We also have footage on sites like graspr and youtube.

I really think that the best is yet to come from us in terms of footage and viewers. If you think about how far Room Six has come in terms of postings, material and the learning curve then all of you are doing really well... keep up the good work Room Six.

In a evening when individual records fell the Girls also scored the schools single biggest win ever by the school, had a the biggest lead at half time ever (31 points), biggest ever winning margin (65 points)...

Tamaki Int. - Girls Rugby 9th June

This afternoon our Open Grade Girls Rugby team faced their sternest test of the year so far when they took on St Pius X School at Sacred Heart School. St Pius X started in dominating fashion with two early tries for a 12-0 lead. Lasini then took control of the game from the mid field and was able to score two tries before half time. That meant that St Pius took the half time lead 12-10. Could Tamaki come back in the second half? Could St Pius maintain pressure on Tamaki and hand them their first defeat of the season?

After securing their first win of the season against the Ellerslie/Panmure team in the second game of the Eastern Zone Finals Tamaki's Open Grade Boys took on Pakuranga Intermediate School. Pakuranga scored what has to be one of the season when their full back runs nearly the full 100m, you really need to check that out. Could Tamaki stage a comeback like their first game? Could Pakuranga hold out? Tamaki's forwards had dominated the Ellerslie/Panmure pack but could they back it up... all this answered in this video!

Filmed by Sosaia, Joshua P and Moli. Moli also interviewed Ricky after the game, and he reveals the tournament results to this point. As with all Eastern Zone footage this is filmed at Dunkirk Reserve in Panmure, on Wednesday 4th June 2008.
