Recount About Niva from Duffy Assembly

         Recount About Niva from Duffy Assembly

On Monday we had Duffy Role Model Assembly. Our role model was Niva. She came to tell us about how reading is important.  

Niva struggled to work on ready when she was still in school, she told us a catchphrase it goes it cool to read and it cool to achieve. She never gave up on ready she tried her best when she reads, shoe goes to the library with her symbols everyday. Now she is good a read because she never gave up.

Niva has been in the radio industry for 30 year, She was raised up in Invercargill by her samoan parents, she has been working in the radio around Samoa and New Zealand. The 40 year old is currently employed as the afternoon newsleader on newstalk ZB based in Auckland.   

Niva loves to talk and talk, she loves to read. Niva read us a story called Kisses Kisses. It was fun because she read it was excitement and it was funny.  

Apart from chatting non stop, Niva's other hobby is running marathons. To date, she has run six marathons including in New York, Queenstown, Paris and Beirut. Niva Retimanu is a great and happy role model.

Christchurch In Russell

Christchurch In Russell

On Tuesday 22 August  2017,  the year 7 and 8 student from Glenbrae School visited  Christchurch in Russell as part as our school camp. We went there to learn about the Maori, Tamati Waka Nene, and the British church. This played an important part   

When we arrived in russell we had to go into the Church we learnt about the Christchurch, when we looked at the church there are still bullet holes in the church that the Maori shot. In front of the church it has Tamati Waka Nene grave stone. And we saw Miss Elia our  principal Great great great grandfather’s grave and his name was William Cook.

Once we left the Christchurch we went to the toilet because some people wanted to go toilet. When we finished we had to talk about what we learned in there.

As soon as we finished we had to go back to our campsite to have Morning Tea.  

It was fun having to see the most oldest house in New Zealand, And history about the church and Tamati Wakanene.
