Room 21 - Jasmine

A First for Everything
Reported by Jasmine Thomas
"...I think that the students will be surprised that it’s a girl drumming, ..."

Friday 6 July 2018, should be noted in the Leabank Primary School Record books as a day the first female drummer performed in front of a large school assembly. Jordyn Tukukino had started out as the main keyboardist for the school band but has now shifted her attention to the drums. Amazingly, she was given the task four days ago (Tuesday 2 July) and has stepped out of her comfort zone to meet it head-on.

When asked, for Jordyn’s thoughts, she replied “I feel nervous but I’m happy doing it with the school band, I was shocked and worried when Mr Ekepati asked me to play the drums at the end of term assembly. I think that the students will be surprised that it’s a girl drumming, I think I will be good because I am learning from the best (Daniel Papalii / Mr Ekepati).”

I look forward to this week’s memorable occasion.

Welcome to the first ever Senior School Science Fair. Every old school, classy, funky project at the fair is overwhelming and the senior students are on top of the world.

While at the science fair you'll receive a fair glimpse of the different display boards which show amazing experiments related to the senior school’s topic (State of Matter). There’s walking water, Slime, Oobleck, bleach and other funky experiments that are really surprising and educational.

Enjoy the best of best, "The Science Fair."

 Some of the classes enjoying looking at some of our displays.

Can you see our one?

This guy is enjoying the Oobleck experiment. He really like the feeling.

Why are they smiling?

These two  Senior School children have held onto these two trophies since the beginning of Term 3 for 6 weeks running. Our next goal as a class is to get all 3 recognitions (Best Senior School Boy, Best Senior School Girl and Best Senior School Class Awards) all at the same time - which no Senior School class has ever succeeded in doing before...
