The Holidays and over and I have to get back into the routine of getting up early, thinking all day and listening to teachers talking but there was something that I was looking forward to, and that was seeing my friends again. I had enjoyed my holidays but I wished that it could have been longer and spent with my closest friends. Now I was back at school waiting in class for the bell to ring.
Since it was first day of school for Term 4 there was an Immersion Assembly put on by our teachers. All the teams had to put on a performance that included what they were going to be learning about. The theme for this term is Art Attack so the acts were all to do with colours, art and famous artists. My favourite team performances were Team 4 and 5.
Team 4 acted out an Art competition for who’s painting was the best. Mrs Garden was the “host” and all the other teachers were the contestants. The contestants were playing the part of famous artists from all over the world. There was someone from the Samoa, France, Spain and of course, New Zealand and their paintings were all very different. They each took turns to talk about themselves and their paintings before judging. We were the judges so we had to applaud for the artist and painting that we liked the best. I clapped for the artist from France but the lady from New Zealand won but it was still fun to watch.
Next up was team 5 and I could tell by their artist costumes that they would either be acting out something or painting. Sure enough they all got up onto stage and started painting on three A4 pieces of paper, two black and one white. While that was happening, a movie was on the screen showing a picture being painted in fast motion. No one knew what they were drawing till the end and even then they just looked like faces upside down until………. They flipped the paintings and it showed Mr Burt, Mr Jacobsen and Mrs Jarman’s faces, it was an awesome surprise and everyone seemed to be “oohing” and “ahhing” at the paintings and at the teachers.
Assembly finished off with a short “talk” from Mr Jacobsen, Mrs Tele’a and Ms Va’afusuaga about different sorts of art, art from the islands and painting with big or small paintbrushes. Immersion Assemblies are always cool and enjoyable and this one was probably in my top two, I have only been to six because I only started this school last year. I look forward to next year Term 2 and the next Immersion Assembly.
