    Because it had a image of all of our class in our costumes with great big smiles on our faces also a video when it has all of us singing fight song and doing fantastic awesome actions to match the song. So that is why that one has the most comments.
  • Which post do you think was the best of the year and why?    The best one probably had to be our Movember because there were lots of men and teachers growing also wearing fake mustaches which everyone thought was really funny and it is really kind for people to grow them because it raised money for men with cancer.

This November some of the males staff at Otonga Road Primary School decided to grown mustaches to support Movember. The aim was to raise money and awareness of men's health. We exceeded our goal of $200 and made $300. Students also got a chance to show off their mo's on our school Mo Day; you can see the photos of the growing mo's and the class photos below.

Thank you to everyone who contributed.

Athletics Day

I was so excited for athletics day my favourite activity is running so I could get some exercise and I also think it’s healthy for the body.  After we did the attendance form everyone went out, we put our hat on and apply sunblock to our skin so we wouldn’t have any sunburn.  Our first activity was the 200m race I was so nervous and scared that I might come last.  The teacher who was incharge for that activity separated us into 6 groups because we were a big group of 10 year old girls. Once they called my name to go on one of the lanes my heart was beating really fast and I also had butterflies in my tummy.  When I got to my lane I was excited and nervous at the same time. The teacher got the whistle and said “Ready,” I was ready to run as fast as I can “Get Set,” I got to my position “Go! Phheeeeew!” he blew the whistle. I ran and ran as fast as I can but when I saw somebody was catching up I said to myself “ I need to come first,” so I sprinted faster and when I saw the finish line I was so happy because I could see no one in front of me. I spread my arms out and put a smile on my face. “Well done you came first and you have also passed the semi finals let’s see if you get to got to interschool,” said one of the teachers and they gave me a green stick that meant I came first. I was so happy but also worn out I was so nervous because the girls who I’m gonna race next are really fast. Luckily they gave us a few minutes to race. But when the time was over to rest we got to our lanes and once the teacher blew the whistle we all zoomed off to race to the finish line. “Yes i passed the finish line’” I told myself but when I looked over my shoulder the teacher was already giving out the sticks and i wasn’t one of the people who got given. But i didn’t feel unhappy at all because I told myself that there are more races that you’ll ever experience in your whole life and maybe you might win one of them. I also thought the day is not over yet there are 2 more races that I haven’t been to. I smiled to myself and said “I will run and run as fast as I can.
