This term our theme for the disco was story book characters and what a variety of characters could be seen. We danced and danced and danced and it was great fun. Room 9 has some wonderful dancers! Abigail won her packet of chippies because she picked up the most rubbish afterwards. Well done Abigail!
Our Flag Expert, Mr Larkin came visiting Outram School this week bringing with him a very special visitor. Miss Petrie went to Outram School when she was a little girl and she will be 100 on December 11th. I wonder what Outram School was like 100 years ago. Mmm I wonder if we need to write some more letters!
We love to sing in Room 9 and last thing on a Wednesday afternoon we always sing with the Guitar Club. We are starting to sing Christmas songs. Keziah now knows how to play the first section of "Air", a little classical tune. Go Keziah, go!
Today we got a letter from Mr Larkin answering all our questions. Thank you so much! Did you know that Mr Larkin has 153 flags? We were pleased to hear that the Anderson's Bay seagulls don't make his flags dirty. If you have another question for Mr Larkin pop it on this post.

I got a bee-sting and it really hurt. I had to stay at home for 2 days. It was really weird because I had to have ice on my foot. It was really COLD!!! Mum and Dad were my slaves. I could watch T.V when ever I wanted to. It was really hot and itchy. I had to hop every-where. My leg that I had to hop on was really sore because I put all my weight on it. On Wednesday I had to walk on it. That was really sore. The next day I had to go to school. That was hard to get around a little bit. And on Monday the day I got stung, it was just past my knee.

We have really enjoyed our flag challenges this year. Lately we have been asking questions about the flags and the Flag Expert. So, we decided to write and ask him our questions. We published our letters using our very, very best printing and then this evening the letters were delivered to him. We now know that he is called Mr Larkins and look he has put up a new flag challenge. Thank you Mr Larkins!

The Room 9 Little Theatre opened again with a short play, "The Sun and the North Wind." After an excellent performance the cast asked some very searching questions Well done! At lunchtime the Guitar Club met and we enjoyed our favourite songs. Then at the end of day we shared these songs with the class. We just love singing!

What fun we had at the Pet Show! There were mystery jars to investigate and a bouncy castle to enjoy. Our very own Olivia entertained the crowd singing with her guitar and the Junior Choir sang two songs complete with solos and harmony. Finally our jump jam team performed. We are very proud of them because they were placed seventh in the South Island.
