Colourful ‘Lush’.

Imogen, Emily and Laura are called Colourful Lush. They are making glow in the dark jars, lip balm and will be having a dart throwing station. I’m pretty sure that they are going to make a lot of money. Today they are making their glow in the dark jars and putting ribbons on their lids for the jars. They are having a lot of fun.

Painting Lolly jars

22nd of September 2017

Reported by Ashtyn Denize
They put a range of lollies in some jars (all shapes and sizes), they’ve put some cool patterns on a see-through jar then painted over the patterns in white to make it light and effective.  Then they paint different patterns on top of the white paint. You are probably thinking, “What are they doing?” but when you see them, they are pretty cool. You will also get a free jar when you buy the lollies. It  is a really cool business  and will only cost $4.00-$5.00 so what a bargain.

22-9-17 BBS team interview
For prep this team is selling painted art “Sharks” for $2.50 at their stall. They drew some pictures and then painted over them. After that, they glued their art onto blue and yellow painted cans reused from home.

The craft masters are face painting, making wood bears and selling giant pumpkin seeds.

The craft masters say face painting is only 1$, the wooden bears are only 3$ and giant pumpkin seeds are only 50c.

They have a big variety of face painting ideas in their book.

The wooden bears are homemade, the giant pumpkin seeds are bought.

The touch rugby tournament of 2017 on the 10th of September, was a phenomenal organisation. Tim Stanley the organiser of the tournament had this to say, “It was a great pleasure organising this thing. Many schools participated, and I couldn’t have done it without their support.” About 6 games were played, and overall the games played, the first school that won all their games, was Greenpark, 2nd Greerton village and 3rd was Pyes Pa. All the following schools participated; Tauriko, Greenpark, Greerton village, Pyes Pa and possibly 2 or 3 other schools. We hope to get to go to the tournament again next year.

Winter 7s football

On Friday last week the Tauriko blue football team (my team) competed in the West cluster Winter 7s football competition. We finished first equal. Our team played really well together and we had heaps of fun, we competed in the finals after winning by a coin toss. We were all puffed out and tired by the end (except for Ryan, he always has energy) but I'm sure if you asked anyone in my team they would agree that we played our hearts out, and had lots of fun.
