This year will be the year this school changes into a brand new environment because there will be 3 brand new classrooms on the top field.This will be the new Rimu block.They are for years 2-4 witch is going to give us less space to run around since the construction is happening but the very good thing what will happen is that there will be more students making friends around the school .My ideas is to put 4 square up at the top field so that there will be room for everyone to play there own game I think its a great idea having a concrete part up on the top field so that not everyone has to be waiting in the same area for the chance to have there turn.

The builders stole our fun!!!
Are you lost with ideas to do at lunchtime?
Do you really want to kick a ball around in the court?
Or maybe use that extra couple of metres of space?
Or maybe even the top field?
Well so do most people in the school. They want to be aloud to do everything they use to be able to do, like play on the top field, kick a ball on the court and use that extra couple of metres. But now the builders stole our space and were all condense in a small space. I mean not even Rimu can eat at there normal lunchtime space. Is that fair? It was still unfair when the new classroom ended up on the court, and now the school has decided to take some more room from the court away by shutting off the top field and metres off the court. They even cut off the shortcut to the school and to make it worse when the bottom field is closed you so condense you just want to go inside and nothing. Do you want to put up with this until next year ? Do you think this is fair? What should we do about it?
I'm sure most of you have heard about or seen the new hit TV show 'The Block NZ'.
For those of you who haven't, the Block is about four couples who have to renovated four houses. Each week they have to do up 1 or 2 rooms. The couple who earns the most amount of money on Auction Day...wins. Here's a sneak peak of the outside of the homes. The photos are in order of the houses. Rachel and Tyson, Sarah and Richard, Ben and Libby and last but not least Ginny and Rhys. Emelia took took these pictures when she was in holiday. Enjoy!
