Magic the Gathering
Magic the Gathering
Lyall, Ronak, JP and Rico are keen ‘Magic the Gathering’ game enthusiasts. They play at home and with friends. This is a card game played by many all around the world.
The gamers have asked if they can set up a club that students can play at morning and lunch breaks. This would be just a ‘card’ game- no gambling or winning or losing cards.
The following website has information to help you to understand the game. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic:_The_Gathering
After having a game with the boys this week I realised it is complex, challenging and exciting.
Each game of Magic represents a battle between wizardsknown as planeswalkers who cast spells, use artefacts, and summon creatures as depicted on individual cards in order to defeat their opponents, typically, but not always, by draining them of their 20 starting life points. Although the original concept of the game drew heavily from the motifs of traditional fantasyrole-playing games such as Dungeons & Dragons, the gameplay bears little similarity to pencil-and-paper adventure games, while simultaneously having substantially more cards and more complex rules than many other card games. Magic can be played by two or more players, either in person with printed cards or on a computer, smartphone or tablet with virtual cards through the Internet-based software Magic: The Gathering Online or other video games such as Magic: The Gathering Arena. It can be played in various rule formats, which fall into two categories: constructed and limited. Limited formats involve players building a deck spontaneously out of a pool of random cards with a minimum deck size of 40 cards; in constructed formats, players create decks from cards they own, usually with a minimum of 60 cards per deck.
The boys are keen to get your feedback about whether we can set up a game club. Please email email@example.com your views.

Showing great School values in the School Car Park
We are aware of the inadequacy of our School Car Park and are grateful for the cooperation of the School Community for keeping our students, staff and whanau safe.
This is a gentle reminder to please show respect for others by not parking on dotted yellow lines at any time or parking behind vehicles so as to obstruct vehicles from exiting at any time.Chasing up owners of vehicles can waste Office Staff time and can result in the owner of the obstructed vehicle missing an urgent appointment.

Learning from Room 9
In Room 9 we have been using the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears to scaffold our learning for Writing, Reading and Maths. We have written diary entries for characters of the story, apology letters (from Goldilocks), and have even written ‘the missing chapter!’. We have been doing porridge maths! (measuring and time). Some of us had never tasted porridge before. Ours had brown sugar and cinnamon! It was delicious!
Measuring...cooking ...and eating porridge!
Letters of apology to Baby Bear
We have also completed our Turangawaewae inquiry “peek-a-boo me!” boxes. We have a self-portrait, information about ourselves, our hopes and dreams, places special to us, and our family.
