Out came Miss Clark, Mrs Moala and Mrs Tele’a all singing, “Happy Birthday to you! Happy birthday to you, happy birthday Miss Peato! Happy Birthday to you!” Miss Peato suddenly realized what was happening and a massive smile spread upon her face. All the teachers had laes and Mrs Tele’a gave one to Miss Peato while she blew out the candles on the cake Miss Clark was holding.
After Miss Peato blew out the candle, everyone clapped. Most of us didn’t even know that it was her birthday so it was a surprise to many people. Miss Peato carried on with her notices and we started the day. All the staff had some food for morning tea and the Yr 7 & 8 teachers ate the cake at lunchtime.
