The NZ Women's 7’S Team were on a celebration buzz after winning against Spain 14- 5 in the quarter finals. NZ somehow managed to keep up with their next game against Russia in the Semi’s winning 24-10, which secured their place in the Finals. To top it all off NZ won 33-24 over Canada to claim the tournament with a Victory!
Surprisingly this year there were 4 tournaments around the world. Which means this is the first ever Women’s Sevens Competition in history.

The big question was, ‘Who was the famous person coming to our school?’ Some people thought that it was our Prime Minister, John Key but, as soon as Mr Burt announced that the person who was coming had musical abilities, then suddenly everyone thought twice about their guess. We were all eager and excited to find out who the mysterious VIP was?
It was time to assemble into the school hall and seeing all the media made this event seem very extraordinary. We were surrounded by video cameras associated with Tv producers who would have screened this event on NZ channels, we immediately thought “Obviously if there are a lot of cameras it has to be someone very special!’. Trying to keep still in our seats was very hard as our mysterious VIP was running late.
Our mysterious VIP had finally arrived at our school with prefects surrounding him. As soon as he entered the hall , it was a jaw dropping moment and it just felt so surreal for him to actually be here . The mysterious person wasn’t mysterious anymore we all looked up Starstruck to actually see ‘WILL.I.AM!! walking down the aisle Yes, the artist from America whose album has recently gone platinum here in NZ and who is a member in the band ‘ Black Eye Peas ‘
WILL.I.AM kindly donated one hundred thousand dollars to our Manaiakalani Education Trust as a gift to support the schools in the Tamaki Cluster Zone. For us personally we are so thankful for his generosity to our school and for his inspirational speech he had spoken to us about. We really do wish him the best in his music career and god bless <3

We believe that having no year 7 and 8 camp is like having no freedom and takes away valuable opportunities to experience the outdoors with our schoolmates. Camp fosters friendship, leadership, cooperation and builds up our confidence. The most important thing in camp is having fun. Therefore we think we should have a year seven and eight camp.
Camp gives us a valuable opportunity to experience the outdoors. For example if you've never been camping before than camp is your chance to try it. Even if you've done this before as many year sevens and eights would have, it would give us the chance to gain even more confidence.
The year seven and eight camp also fosters new friendships or strengthens current friendships and allows us to show our leadership potential. You might get the chance to lead your team, help someone else if you’re an expert or be a good role model in your group. Because you are mixed up, not just in your own friendship group, you have to co-operate as a team and this helps you to develo your bond with others.
Our opinion is that we should have a year seven and eight camp, I trust you will now consider our idea for 2013 year seven and eight camp.
