Welcome back to 'Musical Madness' Term 4!

Immersion Assembly

Yesterday morning was the first day of term 4 (16/10/17). It was that time of the day when team 5 had to met in the street to do our usual routine. We did our mihi and karakia, as always. Then Mrs Tele'a explained about our day. It was 9 o'clock and we filed out in our GB lines (girl/boy) into the hall from the street. We were finally seated in the hall and the assembly began. 

We were greeted with a song from Mr Burt, Mr Jacobson, Mrs Nua, Mr Somerville, and Mr Wiseman called musical madness. They played instruments and sang at the same time. As some of you know, the theme for this term is Musical Madness, so they sang a song about music. After the song, Mr Burt announced to the school that it was time for team 1 to perform. 

So the teachers in team 1 are Ms Hockley, Mrs Lal, Miss Szymanik, Mrs Dwyer, Mrs Squires, and a teacher who will be with them for 4 weeks, and her name is Miss Clark. In their performance they were playing a game of snap! While they were playing they had music on. Their main purpose was to show how music can change your feelings and emotions. For example they played The Last Post (Anzac music). It made them feel sad because of the people who died in Anzac. 

It was time for team 2's item. The teachers in team 2 are Mrs Tumahai, Miss Peck, Mrs Gaston, and Miss Nalder. They sang a song. The song was In The Jungle. They also used instruments. Mrs Gaston sang and played the ukulele at the same time. Mrs Nalder used a Bongo drum. Mrs Tumahai played a xylophone, and Miss Peck played a little instrument that sounded like a tambourine. 

Team 3, it was time for the teachers in team 3 to perform. The teachers in team 3 are Mr Moran, Miss King, Miss Davis, Miss Eddie, and Mrs Moala. They didn't perform, they made a video. Their video was Songs In Real Life. They used different songs to define what they are saying. It was really funny and also entertaining. It was one of my highlights of the Immersion Assembly. 

Mr Somerville, Mr Goodwin, Miss Parrant, Miss Scanlan, Miss West, and Mrs Buchanan are the teachers in team 4. They also made a video clip instead of performing. Their movie was about riding to school in a car listening to music. Kind of like carpool karaoke. They also expressed their feelings when they were listening to songs. This was also one of my favourites. I was very interested in their movie. 

And finally, the last but not least, team 5! These teachers are the teachers of the seniors. They are Mrs Tele'a, Mrs Ilaoa, Mr Wiseman, Whaea Kelly (Who replaced the beautiful Mrs Judd), and Ms Tapuke. Their performance was about how music and sounds can change the way of the movie. They used a clip from The Lion King, and used different songs and sounds to show how it can easily change the feeling and mood.
