Welcome to the Arohanui Syndicate page, featuring Year 2 children from Rooms 1, 2 and 3.
In Arohanui, we are lucky to have two coaches from Counties Manukau to teaching us the skills for learning the two handed strike. This was our first session and we’ve got four more every Friday.
Today Mrs Anitelea played us three songs, two action and one non action song. Suddenly a group of men crept into the hall with their instruments in their hands.
Today the whole of Holy Cross went into the hall. First we sang for a bit. Next we tried to sing one more song but we didn’t get to because the instruments came in. They played the tuba and the trombone, trumpet and French horn.
Today we went to the hall for the music. It was so loud. I like it. There were 5 men. I liked the trombone. It was loud.
Today we went to the hall to listen to the orchestra. First we got there but the musicians weren’t there. So Mrs Anitelea went over a few Mass songs. Then they came and talked a little and then they played music. My favourite was March of the Dwarves.
Today we went to the hall and five men were playing for us. There was a tuba, a trombone, two trumpets and a French horn. The trombone sounded like a motorbike. It was cool but too loud.
Today I went to the hall because I was at a show. There were five men. I heard the men playing a motorbike sound. All of them were playing March of the Dwarves. I laughed at the show.
The whole school went to hear five men. They came to play their instruments. They had a tuba. It makes low noises. They also had a French horn. You have to put your hand inside it. It makes a high noise. They had a mouthpiece.
As we waited for the orchestra we sang songs. When we heard the trombone we went silent. My favourite was the French horn and the tuba.
There were 5 men playing brass instruments. We had to wait for them and then they came with some brass and cool instruments.
My class and I were waiting for the orchestra. We hear a sound. The sound was the orchestra coming. They played songs for us. They played four songs for us. Then after they played for us the answered questions.
First Mrs Anitelea went over our songs that we are going to sing at church while we were waiting for five men that were performing for the whole school. Then they arrived. The instruments there were playing were the tuba, trumpet, French horn and trombone.
Today there were five men that had very interesting instruments. They were holding a tuba, trumpet, trombone and a French horn. The man who was holding a trombone made a motorbike sound. All the men were having a battle. There were playing a lot of music for us. Last they answered questions.
Today I went to the hall to watch the APO Brass and. It was amazing and really loud. There were 5 men playing and the men had small sized and big sized brass instruments.
First Mrs Anitelea told all of the kids in Holy Cross School to go to the hall because there was a show. We were just singing while we were waiting then we saw a band that was going to perform.
Today when the bell rang. We went to the hall and we sang some songs together. Then came five men each of them played different instruments. My favourite instrument was the trombone.
This afternoon five men came to Holy Cross and played music to the school. Two men had a battle with a trumpet. My brain went boom because the music was very good. They played long and short. One of the men played fast. My favourite was the trumpet.
First Mrs Anitelea played a song. We were singing we were waiting in the hall. Next the brass band arrived. There were five men. There were two trumpets, a trombone, a tuba and a French horn. Then they played many songs. It was cool to hear classical and jazz music.
Today we went to the hall and then Mrs Anitelea’s played some songs for us to practice while we waited and then arrived 5 men. They brought 5 instruments and then they played some music for us. I like the trumpet.

In partnership with the Papatoetoe Food Hub we shared a bowl of delicious hearty soup. Food Hub is based in Old Papatoetoe and are a community based initiative to promote healthy, affordable food.
“The Papatoetoe Food Hub is showing what’s possible when community and local government work together to tackle one of our community’s toughest issues. But we’re not a food bank or a charity, it’s a collective of community-led enterprises aimed to be self-sustaining and employing local people.”
