Tamaki Int - Rugby Vs. Viscount

On Monday 22nd September the Girls Rugby Interzone Finals took place at Point England Reserve. This involved the top four Girls teams from Auckland the Champions of each of the different Zones. Tamaki Intermediate were there as Eastern Zone Champions. We were up against Viscount School, the Southern Zone Champions in the third pool match. Viscount were the Runners Up in Auckland for 2007 when they defeated Tamaki in the still much talked about Semi-Finals in sudden death extra time match (before losing to Henderson in the finals).

In this match Tamaki were desperate to claim a win against Viscount to qualify them for the finals. Having lost to Randwick Park and beaten Mt Roskill it was a do or die game. Tamaki took the lead early in the match before Viscount scored just before half time to even the game. In the second half Viscount showed their class that would see them eventually win the final as they defeated Tamaki 7-28.

This game is the final in the highlights series of Rugby games for 2008. Filmed by Gaifo and Meliame at Point England Reserve on Monday 22nd September.

Tamaki Int. - Term Three Prize Giving

On Thursday 25th September Tamaki Intermediate had their term three prize giving. There were some important awards given, the big news for Room Six was that we captured the ICT achievement award for Victor, and Zecillia and Moli received awards for effort in ICT.

The other big end of term award was the Term Three House Shield. At Tamaki Intermediate students are in one of four houses - Orpheus, Leander, Calliope and Achilles. Students compete every week in Sports Events, have points awarded in classroom for activities and also receive house points for nearly everythind around the school. Orpheus (blue) had won last term and were looking to take a lead into the final term of the year. Could they win a second term in a row? Could another house strike back? Who would be favourites going into Term Four? Watch this video to see...

Tamaki Int. - An apology to Perkiomenville Pennsylvania

Last Week we posted learn to Speak Samoan Lesson 16. In it we identified a number of animals and then translated them into English. Occassionally we make the odd error which is lost in translation! An Gaifo informed me that the Samoan work for snake was wrong, as the person putting it onscreen had written the wrong word - that would be me! Now this has happened before from time to time and I said "no worries" (thats a classic Kiwi saying along the lines of "she'll be right" and "no problems, I'll fix it") and I was going to get around to fixing it overnight. Unfortunatly (this is my teacher disclaimer in full) I got sidetracked (hey its getting towards the end of term and I am very busy) and kind of forgot to do it.

Gaifo saw it again yesterday reminded me and said what if someone learnt it wrong. I said I thought it would be okay just overnight, and I'd fix it today, promise, promise etc.

Lo and behold we had a google search overnight from Perkiomenville Pennsylvanaia searching for Samoan word for Snake! If you did that search and your a student or a teacher we're soooo sorry for misleading you! Our humblest appologies at Tamakitoday! If it was part of a work project please accept our sincerest apoligies! (we'll even apologise to your teacher in person if it was a project!) and if you happen to know anyone from Perkiomenville, Pennsylvanaia (what a cool place name!) whose Samoan or learning Samoan or doing a project on Samoan, Samoa or a project on Snakes... well I think you get the idea...
please let them know theres been a mistake on our part and we'll fix the issue!

Tamaki Int - Learn to Speak Tongan Lesson 6

In it the students talk about various items of stationary that you might used in your classroom, and they say the name for each item in Tongan and then in English.

Tamaki Int. - Interzone Girls Rugby Union

Today our Girls Rugby Union team finally took the field for the Girls Interzone Rugby Union Tournament. In our first game our Open Grade Girls were able to defeat Mt Roskill Intermediate. Meleana scored twice and there were tries to Katie and Kalisita. In the second game we took on Randwick Park School in a close game Tamaki were trailing 0-7 at half time before Lasini scored to tie the match. Randwick Park then scored three additional tries to take the game 7-28. We had a do or die game against our old friend at Viscount School. Ana grabbed the first try before Viscount equalised again at half time the score was 7-7. Again in the second half Viscount moved away with the game taking it 7-28. That meant the Girls had to play off against Mt Roskill for 3rd/4th in Auckland. The Girls were keen to finish the season with a win and duly delievered. Lesieli scored a brace and Meleana added another to lead 21-7 at half time. In the second half Lasini scored twice, as Tamaki finished the season by winning 35-7. The places the Girls 3rd in Auckland for 2008.

Congratulations to Viscount School who won the final and are Auckland Champions for 2008. Also Randwick Park were deserved runners up for the year.

I'd also like to acknowledge those students who have played Rugby for the School in 2008 (and those two who have played two seasons for the school as Y7's) for those who wont get to wear the jersey again it was a nice way to finish off Tamaki Intermediate Rugby. Meliame ended up stranded on 11 tries for the season leaving her tied with Lumepa from 2007. Lasini was just behind with 10 for the season.

Tamaki Int. - Interzone Girls League Results

Today at Cornwall Park Tamaki Intermediate Girls took part in the Girls Interzone Rugby League Finals. The Open Grade Girls started off in dominating fashion defeating Henderson Intermediate 35-10. In the second game we were defeated by Viscount School 12-27. In our final game we needed to defeat Otahuhu Intermediate and hope Viscount could defeat Wesley Intermediate. Tamaki delievered defeating Otahuhu 25-0, however Wesley were able to upset Viscount thus eliminating Tamaki. The finals will be contested next week between Sir Douglas Bader Intermediate and Kedgley Intermediate (who defeated us in the 12 a side competition early this term). We wish them both the best of luck. It was a final hit our for our Girls before the Interzone Rugby Union Finals which as you should know are taking place this Monday at Point England Reserve! We'd like as many Tamaki Interemdiate supporters as possible as we take on dangerous opposition - not only Southern Zone Champions Viscount School (who are favourites having suffered a single defeat in the competition since 2000!), but also Waitakere Champions Henderson Intermediate, Central Zone Champions Mt Roskill Intermediate and Counties Champions Randwick Park.

The Under 55kg Girls team managed third at the League - they're due to battle on Monday against Bucklands Beach Intermediate, Henderson Intermediate and Northcross Intermeidate who dominated the Under 55kg Girls Rugby League competition.

As its very much a home final for us we'd like as many supporters as possible to make their way to Point England Reserve. The games kick off at 10:00am. See you there.

Tamaki Intermediate - AIMS Tournament Review


On Friday the Tamaki Intermediate Girls Basketball returned from Tauranga and the AIMS Tournament 2008. The big news from the final day for Tamaki Intermediate was that Lasini our Captain was named in the 2008 Tournament team! This is a huge honour for the player and the team, as this is only the second time that its happened. Lasini also has the U13 Nationals coming in October and we wish her all the best of luck in this competition. We'd also like to congratulate Hastings Intermediate Girls for winning the competition who beat Cobham by a single point in the final. The full results for the tournament are available on the NZAIMS Website, which you can reach by clicking here.

We have a mountain of footage to sort through from the tournament and will do so starting this weekend. We've also got all the regular groups posting again from next week once we return back to school, and also have some exciting events happening this week! (More on this tomorrow).

The other exciting event is that soon Tamakitoday will have its 2,000 visitors to this blog page, in six months were pleased to reach this mark and have visitors from over 30 countries.

Tamaki Int. - AIMS Basketball Results Day Three

Tamaki Intermediats day of crunch results happened today. Facing a quater final battle with Tauranga Intermdiate School to qualify for the semi-finals Tamaki produced a strong defensive display that was matched by Tauranga. The game was 11-9 to Tauranga at half time and as late as the fourth quarter the score was only one point in it 13-14. Tauranga used the most of their home ground advantage though to take the game 15-24. Tamaki Intermediate were disappointed by the narrow loss but wish our friends at Tauranga Intermediate all the best for the semi-finals. Having to pick themselves up for a 5th/6th/7th/8th qualifier Tamaki's afternoon game was against one of the other host schools Otumoetai Intermediate. Tamaki were a bit jaded after the narrow loss in the morning and tried hard to pick themselves up. Going into the fourth quarter Tamaki found themselves thirteen points down 15-28. A run of ten unanswered points brought Tamaki right back into the game and it looked like another comeback was on the cards similar to yesterdays game. However it was not be as fouling trouble saw Otumoetai take the game narrowly 30-25. This means that the Tamaki Intermediate Girls now have to play off for 7th/8th tomorrow morning.

As the coach of the team who has worked with these Girls for the last 12 months, none of whom who'd played Basketball before last year, I'd just like to say how thrilled that I have been by their efforts this week. We've missed out on the semi-finals by the narrowest of margins and really could have been there but for a few close calls and the bounce of the ball. The standard of competition at the finals has been huge (much stronger than last year) and the team really has done well to maintain their composure and discipline in some trying circumstances. They have represented Tamaki Intermediate School with honour and pride and Miss Curran and myself are very proud of them.

Tamaki Int. - AIMS Basketball Results Day Two

Today our team had two games of Basketball at the 2008 AIMS Basketball Tournament. In the first we played Bruce McClaren Intermediate from Waitakere, Auckland. Tamaki started off a little nervously again but were happy to lead 17-6 at half time. In the second half Tamaki pulled away somewhat eventually winning 38-18. Lasini scored another 20 points and was well supported by Meliame with 7 and Latrell with 8.

In the second game we played against Kura te Koutou from Rotorua, who had only lost once. The game couldnt have been any closer. Tamaki were down at half time 7-16. In the third quater we managed to outscore the other team 16 points to 8 - that put us one down going into the final quarter. In the match of the year (for us!) Tamaki managed to have a two point lead going into full time when the Kura had two free throws to force extra time! The first was a brillant throw the second a little to the right! That meant Tamaki Intermediate won 29-28!

This means Tamaki's record at the tournament is now 3-1 their only defeat coming at the hands of Murrays Bay Intermediate. Tomorrow its play off time. To make the semi-finals Tamaki must defeat tournament hosts Tauranga Intermediate School. A win tomorrow would put us into the tournament semi-finals - a defeat means we play off for a place between 5th and 8th! The game is at 11:00am tomorrow and the result will go online afterwards. Footage will be displayed folowing our return to Auckland on Friday.

Tamaki Int. - Learn to Speak Maori 6

In this lesson your hosts Mereana and Mikeala explain the names of different family members in Maori. The key names that you need to listen for are: Tamahine- daughter, Matua - father, Whaea - Mother, tungane - Brother, Tuahine - Sister, Teina - younger sister, Tama - son and Hoa - friend. Listen very carefully to Whaea and the way that the Girls pronounce it because of the sound "wha which phoentically is fa".
