Jonty the player of the day

When I heard that Jonty scored the double , I was amazed that he got two player of the days on the very same day - I was so ecstatic about it. Mr Palmer spoke out and told us the score was 51 to 7 our whole school was amazed at our rugby boys WOW but when I heard Jontys name for player of the day I was so blown away ''he must be a really good player I thought to my self."

Then Mr Jacobsen announced the SOCCER there were 5 games played Pt England drew 1 and won 4. Mr Jacobsen said the soccer player who stood out was the boy who already got Player of the Day Jonty again! My ears couldn't believe it - two 'Player of the Day' certificates WOW, soccer and rugby must a great player!
Well until the next time I write about sport - see you.
Sione.

Long Lean Lanky Jones!

A very strange thing happened at our Assembly last Friday. Everyone was surprised when our principal Mr Burt appeared on stage wearing a shiny long beautiful red dress with a wacky fluorescent wig, and dancing.
It was a little confusing to understand their song which was called Along Came Jones. It began with Mr Palmer one of our teachers, he came out, plonked himself down on a soft armchair and glued himself to the TV. Suddenly our assembly went wild with laughter, as our Principal pranced out in his fancy dress closely followed by the evil
villain, played by Mr J. Then he tied her up and left her for dead on the railroad track"...watch and see what happened next.

We really enjoyed it and thought it was a hilarious example of our theme this term, which is called
"The Art In Story Telling".
