Melville Intermediate - Aldrich at School Talent Quest

On the final day of School for Term Three, a week ago on Friday 7th October we finished the term with the school talent quests.  One of the outstanding acts and surprise packages from the afternoon was the star turn of Aldrich from Room Eight.  Aldrich played violin first as part of the school violin group, which although he's not part of he was able to contribute too, but also performed accompanied by Mr Bell the Melville Intermediate School Music Teacher.  Aldrich has been playing violin for six years.

A lot of students from Melville Intermediate haven't heard the violin from a performance perspective before but Aldrich did such an amazing job by the end of the performance he had converted a number of students! These two videos were recorded by Ben, Mackenzie and Benita from the show and were recorded in our school hall on Friday 7th October.

Melville Intermediate students are currently on their term three holidays, with another week to go they will be back at school on Tuesday 25th October.  See you all then.

Melville Intermediate - Otumoetai Intermediate Maths 2011

On Thursday 29th of September 2011three year seven students from Melville Intermediate School who were Jarom Bohm, Trey Dixion and Lee Farrar-Johnson went to Tauranga to Otumoetai Intermediate to compete in their annual Maths competition.  We were choosen to go for our amazing test scores and talents in Maths. When we arrived at the Intermediate at 5:30pm we saw many other schools there already.  There were approximatley 20 schools there which is a lot because there were both 'a' and 'b' teams for some schools.  When we went inside the hall at 6:00pm there were desks spread out all over the place, me and the other Year 7 students found our desk and sat down.  After a while the co-ordinator for Baymaths stood up and told us we would be doing an individual test that would take ten minutes.  After that we did a team challenge that lasted for twenty minutes and a timed challenge that had one question every three minutes.  When we were at the last question, I can't recall what it was but after thirty seconds we called out 195 which happened to be the answer.  At the prize giving Berkley took home the award for Y7s and Y8s among some other trophies and we came 15th out of about 30 teams but that's still pretty good.  At 8:30pm we left to drive back to Hamilton, on the way our parents stopped and brough us Wendy's but it was still a long trip and we didn't get back until 10:30pm

Melville Intermediate - Stonefields School Finn and Damien

Firstly have a look at this video of some dancing that was created by Finn and Damien from Stonefields School in Auckland. We found this on their class page today, and really enjoyed watching it as it made up smile and happy.

This would be about the second time ever in over 1050 posts that we've used someone else's work on this page, but nevermind. The original post talks about the dancing spreading, which led Mr Webb to think about getting some students from Melville Intermediate School to copy Damien and Finn's dance and reproduce it here at school.   Today we have Giovan in helping Mr Webb after lunch, we showed him Finn and Damiens video which he loved, and here's his take on that song and the dancing:
