Mrs Lagitupu the kung fu master

Its been such a great year so far since our fun and hardworking teacher Mrs Lagitupu has been teaching us. The sad thing is she will be leaving us next week but the happy side of it is she gets two bundles of joy! Thats right, you read it correctly, she is having twins! Isn't that exciting?

Time has gone by very fast. We've done so much amazing stuff with her like making movies, podcasting and also blogging. I have learnt so much from her, she is like a kung fu master that is teaching me all these complex and interesting moves.

I wonder what our new teacher is going to be like? Will he or she be fun, nice, hardworking and helpful like Mrs Lagitupu? Anyway whoever gets to teach these wonderful talented pupils in Room 18 we will welcome him or her to our class and we will make them feel at home........maybe

Well we wish you all the best when you go Mrs Lagitupu. Room 18 will miss you and will hope you bring the babies in.

A Samoan recipe for Extension

In Extension, we are making a cookbook with homemade recipes of food we are already eating at home. It will be a combination of dinner and desert recipes. We have different Pacific Island students in Extension so we have come up with a few Island dishes. Last weekend I learnt how to make alaisa fa'apopo, or in English its called Coconut Rice.

3cups of rice, half a can of coconut cream and a pinch of salt

a rice cooker {or a pot} and a bowl

Step 1: Cook your rice as you would normally cook it.

Step 2: In a bowl, pour half a can of coconut cream and then add a pinch of salt to it and mix.

Step 3: Make wells in your cooked rice and pour the coconut cream mixture in evenly. Mix together.

Step 4: Serve and eat when its hot. {My Dad loves this with Koko Samoa which is Samoan cocoa. It tastes way different to cocoa you buy in the shop}
