Cross Country

This week our year 4-8 students represented Kumara School at the Midland Line Cross Country. There were four other schools there too.  Kumara School students represented us really well and ran to the best of their ability.

The event was held at the Kumara race course, which is famous for its family race day held each year in January.  The race course is also where the Coast to Coast bases itself in February of each year.
The rest of the year the race course is home to a herd of cows, which made for an interesting Cross Country as we had to avoid the surprises the cows left behind for us.  Some students lost their shoes in the mud and had to retrieve them in mud as deep as their elbows.

Two of our students stood out in the races, with Carlos and Autumn qualifying to represent the Midland Line Schools at the West Coast Cross Country event next week.  Congratulations to them. As the event will be held back at Kumara race course they will have the challenge of dodging the cow's warm deposits again.

M&M farm experiment goes bad.



There is nothing like a morning breeze with the cows.
"Arghh they're all so big!
Don't touch me with your slimy nose or else!
You're so close I'm felling claustrophobic. Stand back you evil monster!" Says M&M in fright.
"Calm down dude. We are just look to see if you're safe to stay." Mikki says.
"Trust me I am a good evil monster." M&M says letting his secret out.
"ATTACK!" Mikki yells!

M&m is going on a bus ride



M&m is on the bus to my place he is coming home with me. Tomorrow i am going to  to school again. By Isaac.
Last week on Thursday and Friday we went to Shantytown for a ICT kids conference.We learned stop motion animation. It's when you take a photo, then move the objects lost of times, taking photos each time. At the end you play all the photos fast and it looks like a movie. This is one Jamielee and I made.
