Glenbrae's duffy role model assembly

Glenbrae’s  Duffy Role Model Assembly

On Monday the 18th of September, Glenbrae School had a Duffy role model assembly in our hall.

First we sat down and waited for the chief guest to arrive.  Then our student leaders guided the chief guest  to the hall. After that, Loto, Luisa and Aaliyahna introduced Niva Retimanu to us all.

Next,  Niva  told as about herself, her job and her work at the radio station. She started when she was 18 years old. We also learnt from Niva that she was a New Zealand born Samoan who was born in Invercargill.

After that Niva read a story to as. It was called Yuck Yuck Kiss Kiss. I liked the story because it was funny and made us laugh. Niva read the story with a lot of expression and that made it very funny and exciting.

After reading the story she gave out the Duffy books to all the classes. Candice from our class received her book from Niva because she was our class role model. I felt happy for Candice because it was an honour for her to represent the class.

Before saying thank you and good-bye to Niva, the whole school sang the Duffy song. I enjoyed the assembly a lot because Niva was very interesting and I was excited to learn more about reading

Finally, everyone left the assembly hall while room ten stayed back to have their fitness in the hall.

about me poem


Cool, funny and awesome

Lover of dabbing doing the whip

Who is able to do a handstand, forward flips and bottle flips.

Who is nervous about going to a new school.

Who is curious about how ice cream is made

Who is scared of nothing.

Who dreams of having cool hair and a house.

Never,Eat,Soggy,Weetbix and star jumps.
This might sound strange but this is what we learnt
during fitness today. Mrs Raj taught us how to remember
the points of a compass by using a funny sentence
with the letters and playing a game. After that
we did 5 star jumps and 5 hops.We enjoyed today’s

fitness lesson. It was a lot of fun.Free photo: Compass, Antique, Map Of The World - Free Image on ...
