Luce's Free Writing.**

When I am sitting here all I can see is TeeCee writing so fast. She is like Zia running but only with her fingers. Her hands are like little cheetahs and she has a frown on her face. I still don't know what to write. Emma's pen is really cool. It has a little maze inside it. How cool is that? Libby is like a writing machine; she is writing crazy-fast. Anyway I still do not know what to write. Everyone is frowning they all look so funny. Britt is biting the bottom of her lip and the timer has just stopped so, bye.

Email from Africa

Hi TC and LC 13,

Sorry I haven't been in touch earlier, I have been very busy here in Durban, and am usually exhausted by the time I get home that I can't face writing emails.
I hope you are all doing well and continuing the wonderful creativity in QZealand.

Things here are good. My mum is getting better every day. She is still in the rehabilitation unit and has a long way to go with her therapy. She still can't use her right arm or leg, but she is making slow progress. She was able to come home for the afternoon on Saturday and the day on Sunday so she was very relieved to be back in her own house. I am spending most of the day with her, taking her the newspapers and some good coffee, so not much free time, which is a shame because the weather here is AMAZING! It's like 25 degrees, blue skies, the sea is like a millpond and just so lovely. Unfortunately I can't swim in the sea because the annual sardine migration in happening where the sardines swim up the east coast of South Africa and the sea is FULL of sharks, dolphins and whales, so they lift the shark nets so that none will get caught in them. Therefore swimming is banned, which is really bad timing for me!

Anyway, I'll be back in Palmerston North on Sunday... I just hope I am not too tired from the flight to see South Africa beat the All Blacks !! :)

Take care everyone!

Mathex Results**

The people in mathex did very well and got great scores. Here's their teams final results...

Aidan's team came fourth out of around 30 schools.
Zia and Alan's team came 13th out of around 30 schools.

(Around Palmerston North)!

I think they did really well because it would be very hard and they were competing against so many other schools.

Fiendishly Funny Friday for Fiona**

This Friday at Riverdale School we are having an 'F' Day because Zia's mum is going to Canada for a mountain biking comp and will be wearing the silver fern. Well done Fiona Q Zealand wishes you the best of luck.

BUT the NZ team has not got a lot of money so Riverdale School wants to help because Fiona helps Riverdale a lot. Like she helped with the Cross Country and the Interschool Cross Country and other sporting things. So on Friday we are having an 'F' Day so come dressed as something that starts with 'F' and bring a gold coin [remember a $5 starts with an F]

So the next time you see Fiona say, ''Well done and good luck,'' because this is a big thing for her and us.




'F' Day**

Here are some Idea,s for F Day so take some advice and try not to be boring
Fairy, Farmer,
Female (boys only it, would be boring for a girl)
FREAK, fish,
Frog, Football player,
Food, Fred Flintstone,
The Flintstones,
Fisherman, Flag.

So we are all expecting crazy and exciting class this Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Totsiens.(the Afrikaans word for good bye)
Miss Morris, our student teacher is leaving!
It was fun with her teaching because we learnt about Measurement and capacity and then made Cake or Pizza. Sadly she's going back to Africa tomorrow. She's just visiting her parents but she's coming back to New Zealand, and she said that she's going to come back to QZealand when we're least expecting her.
[Tricky Miss Morris, Of course... She's a tricky person so it's very likely that she will be tricky]

All the people in QZealand Wish you good luck in South Africa!
We all hope you enjoy your time there.

Britt's car crash**

This is Britt's scar ^^ And the one up top is her car!
WOW! Last week on Sunday Britt was in a car crash!
Here what Britt has to say:
"It was a scary experience! All I saw was headlights coming at us. We were thankful that it was in a 30 kmh area. We had to go to the hospital that night to get checked on, I was the reason we got held up from going home. I was waiting for a ultrasound but then I didn't want it anymore so we just went home, at 1 o'clock at night. But I'm fine now. "
Here are some pictures of her family's car. It was an Audi. Sad, right?
There is also one of her scar (OH OUCH!) up top.
WOW! That must have been so scary! Britt you are so brave!!!!!

Good luck Cat Girl in saving the town.
