What makes me happy at school ?

In Room 9, we have been sharing our thoughts and ideas about all the things we do at school that makes us happy and excited about school.

Fire Safety in Room 9

Last term we were learning about fire safety. Things we need to remember when there is a fire -

Firefighters are heroes who safe lives of people. They came to our school to talk to us about how to be safe when there is a fire.

Firefighters showing us how they get ready when there is an emergency.

Firefighters getting the water hose ready to put off the fire.
 Splash! Splash! goes the hose putting off the fire. 

Firefighters carry lots of equipment in the fire truck It was interesting to see the inside of a fire truck.

Tongan Language Week

Last term we celebrated Tongan Language week. We all dressed up in Tongan costumes. We had a special assembly singing and doing Tongan dances.
