On Wednesday the 12th of December the year 6s had their graduation. Brandon and Ebenezer welcomed us into the hall. When we got into the hall Whaea Sose started to say a speech. After her speech she asked Margaret from Pataka to come and say a speech about the new hall mural.Then it was time for her to hand out the trophy for the best art in Russell School and it was for Colleen. Next we sang 'Hall a fame', our teacher said it was the best we had ever done it.Then it was time for the next trophy. After that we sang some of our Russell School songs. Then it was time for more trophies. Do you know what I was scared of ? I was scared when Ben and I went to say our speech because Ben had a longer speech then me and I had a short speech that was so EMBRACING!!! But I was still proud of myself and Ben because we did a great job and we were supported by our classmates. We finished by doing the loudest haka you ever heard.
