Man what a retiring run that was!! Point England Primary just had there 2009 annual Cross Country. At our school we have teams for sports. One of the teams is called "Takitimu" And it's colour is "Yellow",their is also another team that is named "Matatua" there colour is "Green". There is also another team and there name is "Tainui" there colour is Blue (Which is my favourite colour). And another team called "Te Arawa" Which is Red
I am one of the leaders for Takitimu! (Yellow) Which meant that I had a big responsibility........ TO LOOK AFTER TAKITIMU. We cheer , we shout ,we scream , we do all kinds of crazy things to support our team colours!! When it was my turn for Cross Country I felt like I had so many Butterfly's in my stomach that my stomach wanted to explode like a Volcano!!! So then I was off!!
Over all I came 5th place which meant that I took the final spot to get into the school Cross Country Inter zones!!!!! Here are some short clips of me go hard out for the BEST TEAM EVER!! TAKITIMU!!!!! Ops I almost forgot I'm the guy wearing Yellow Tights!!

Yesterdays game for the West Tigers against the Cronulla Sharks was absolutely magnificent!! That is some of the magical razzle dazzle I have seen the Tigers play in the entire year!! Benji Marshall playing his 100th game of NRL was amazing, He had rediscovered some of his most magical work ever. But It wasn't just him that stood out certainly not!!
It was also Tim Moltzen the skill full youngster that set up some amazing tries for the Tigers. He would side step, fend ,offload, and even break threw the big guys! Of course the Tongan Monster Taniela Tuiaki had an awesome game scoring THREE that's right people THREE tries to take him to the top of the try scoring ladder with 21 tries which means he has scored 84 points so far (Which also means that the Tongan Monster has broken the record for the West Tigers!! . And the Rough and tough Tiger Robbie Farah had aye great game. Getting aye quick platform from the ruck giving a try to Marshall and one to Tuiaki.
Their was also a youngster who made his debut for the first game and for the West Tigers his name is "Robert Lui" He made good breaks and a good grubber kick helping Blake Ashford getting across the line for a double. My most favourite try that the West Tigers scored was when "Beau Ryan" scored from a great long ball from Robbie Farah, I also liked the first try from the Tigers when Robbie Farah saw a big gap in the Sharks line so he picked up the ball from the ruck and ran to the gap, since the Sharks saw Robbie Farah coming a defender came to close the gap which was Robbie Farahs plan! Farahs plan to draw in aye player to make an even bigger gap for Marshall to get throuh! So he gave the ball to Marshall he was off he then passed it off to Tim Moltzen but they still had the Fullback to beat so Moltzen passed back to Marshall and Marshall went in to score the first TRY!!The Tigers next game is against the PARAMATA EELS man what a cracker Jack game that would be I guess who ever loses the next game is done for the season!! GO THE TIGERS RRRROOOOOAAAAARRRR!!!!!

The West Tigers came back with two wins to barge there way into the top eight. With an absolute cliff hanger of a match when they won against the Manly Sea Eagles who were coming seventh, It was one good score 19-18 to the West Tigers and another win to the Sydney Roosters 17-10 it was a scrappy win but it was enough to send them into the top eight!! (The top seven to be exact!)
Through out the past four matches Taniela Tuiaki has been in devastating form for the Tigers he has scored EIGHTEEN that's right EIGHTEEN tries through out the whole season. That is how many tries Paul Whatuira scored for the Tigers in 2005. But the record for the Tigers try scoring is Pat Richards with 20 tries in 2005. Lot's of Tigers got heaps of tries in 2005 that's because they were the champions in 2005!!!
There next match is against the Cronulla Sharks I hope they win this next game because if the Cowboys lose there next game against the Canterbury Bulldogs the West Tigers will go into 6th place. It's going to be one cliff hanger of the match but I want the Bulldogs to win this!! Let's hope the Tigers win for a start aye?!?!?!
GO THE TIGERS

"WOW WHAT AN AWESOME EXPERIENCE!!" Today on the 4th of August the Point England Primary school extension group all had an amazing video conference with a Paleontologist/Geologist Hamish Campbell!! We had such an amazing chat with him . By the way have you heard about the MASSIVE EARTHQUAKE that happened in New Zealand? Well if not it was on July the 16th in the South island in fact it was in Fiorldland a small place in the South Island.
As he explained to us how and why an earthquake is created we were so amazed that all of our mouths nearly dropped on the ground like a RAIN DROP!!! We were also amazed that this Earth Quake in New Zealand was the BIGGEST EARTH QUAKE IN 80 years - THAT'S RIGHT 80 YEARS!!
Did you know that an earthquake travels at least 20,000 km PER HOUR!!! That is like Super Sonic ,ULTRA,MEGA,DELUXE SPPPPPEEEEEEDDDDDDDD!!! In fact it is 5 times faster than a Bullet!! It was so hard for me to take in - that an Earthquake went that FAST!! So that is why we cannot track when an Earthquake is about to happen!
Hamish also told us about how an earthquake is actually caused. It is actually caused by big GIANT THINGS called plates. See all of these plates are under the Water/Ocean/Sea and if they collide/hit/touch each other than it would cause an earthquake
We also got to make some home made Seismometers. I made mine with Moses and Blessing. They measure how big an Earthquake is. We showed Hamish our Seismometers and he was very impressed!! He said to us"Some of you might become scientists!!" We enjoyed talking to Hamish - once again we asked him if we could talk again - Dianan Grace and Hamish said "Of course"
