Mountain Narrative

In 1937, on a Saturday afternoon, 2 newborn baby boys were finally brought to life after being in their mother’s stomach for 7 months. Their names
were Taranaki and Tongariro. They were raised by their lovely parents, Ruapehu and Pihanga. They had very mean neighbours living across from their house. But then a few hours later a newborn baby girl was born. Her name was Everest. Her parents were, Logan and Eden. The minute Taranaki and Tongariro saw how beautiful Everest was, they were shocked. Everest took their breath away. If you could only she how beautiful she was.
The problem was that Taranaki and Tongariro both loved her so much. A few years later,  Everest grew up to be a beautiful young lady. Then Taranaki and Tongariro grew up as well. Taranaki grew up to be a brave, handsome and strong young man. So did Tongariro. A few hours later, Everest went over to Taranaki and Tongariro’s house to see if they could play outside. So they both came to the door and saw that Everest was standing there right in front of them. “Are you allowed to come and play outside with me” she asked. They both said, “Yeah, sure. Why not,” So they all went outside to play. But then it started to get darker and darker. Than Everest said, “Sorry guys, I had a lot of fun. But it is getting too dark, so I need to go home. We can always play tomorrow.” Then Taranaki and Tongariro said, “Sure, we need to be heading inside as well for dinner.” After that they all said, “GOODBYE. SEE YOU TOMORROW.”
10 years later… Taranaki and Tongariro started to get furious with each other. They both loved the same girl. But they didn’t know what to do about it. So they battled over Everest to win her beloved heart. Once Everest had heard about what they were going to do, she suggested that they play rugby for her and whoever gets to 5 points first will get to go out with hey, but whoever loses with get turned into a mountain. They went to the rugby field and played and played until someone had won 5 points at least. But then… They came a tie. So Taranaki and Tongariro said, “Oh no, we have come a tie. What do we do now?” Everest said, “So break the tie. Whoever scores the next goal wins!” So after a while Taranaki and scored the final winning goal and he won over Everest for her beloved heart. He was so excited.
After that, Tongariro said, “Congrats Taranaki!! You deserve a woman like Everest.” They all then went back to their house and Tongariro travelled somewhere else to get turned into a mountain. Once he had done that he would no longer be called just Tongariro. He would be called Mount Tongariro. For his sake, he now stands located in Manawatu - Wanganui. Then about 2 years later, Everest and Taranaki had a beautiful little girl. They called her Pihanga. That is my version of the story of how Mount Tongariro was formed.

Duffy Assembly

Duffy Assembly

Guess What? At 2pm (straight after lunch) the Yr 5 - Yr 8 students went to the school hall to watch a Duffy assembly. 3 people were starring in it and their names were, Tevita, Simon and Talia. Talia played Ruby, which was duffy’s neighbour. Simon played Duffy and Tevita played all of the other parts. For Example: Tevita played, Mum, Dad, Musician and even a baby. This time their show was called Duffy’s Time Travel Mission. By the sound of the title it sounded like it was going to be a pretty choice show to watch.
