Immersion Assembely

We’re back to school and it’s term three. Our theme for term three is all about ‘Game On’ and the Commonwealth Games. When I walked in the hall for immersion assembly I saw some of the teachers wearing their own nations  traditional clothes, and some were holding flags. Some of the countries where America, Fiji, Samoa, South Africa, Niue, Canada and Wales.

It was team ones turn to perform. One of the teachers acted as Queen Elizabeth. Mrs Slade went to Fiji and interviewed some of the kids at schools and took some photos of some schools. Then it was team twos turn to perform. Team 2 had a video about the Commonwealth games. In the video they acted like they were in a competition.

My favorite one of all of them all was Team 5. It was my favorite because they traveled around the world and they went to amazing countries. Mrs Nua went to Spain.
