First of all Room One were very sad that Team New Zealand did not win but have had useful discussions about how we don’t always win, even when we give it our best and how to really make breakthroughs we can’t just stick to what we know we will win. Lots of great learning lessons to be taken from Team New Zealand – their integrity, determination, faith, striving for excellence, and staying true to who they are (even in defeat).

We did not have long to ponder this as we needed to get on an get ready for our school Fiafia. I wouldl like to send a HUGE thanks to J’Dore’s Mum and Nana who helped me to get the Room One students hair, make up and costumes ready on the evening. Thank you to every parent who send along the correct items for costumes – we looked fabulous!

I was so proud of Room One’s efforts and the crowd seemed to love us

Waiting for their dance partners to pick them up from our Room One hair salon.

As we lined up at the door to head out onto stage Julizah gave Roman some last words of encouragement.  They were so excited!

Thank you to Chrystal who helped get our gorgeous girls looking like they stepped right out of the 1950's!
