Well done Room 7 for all your hard work and creative writing. Four weeks ago all Room 7 children worked hard to write and illustrate a short story incorporating their favourite Vodafone Warriors Player.
Not only did our class win some amazing prizes, Khodaysa had the overall best story and was so lucky to be given a Vodafone Warriors Jersey signed by JEROME ROPATI!
We were all so excited to have Jerome Ropati along with Representatives from Konica Minolta visit our class and present us with our wonderful prizes.
For the fourth successive year, reading is top on the Warriors’ ‘cool list’ with the Konica Minolta League in Libraries initiative. The League in Libraries principle is that if the Vodafone Warriors say reading is cool, their fans will think so too. High on many kids’ wish lists is a chance to meet their favourite rugby league stars. To get this opportunity, children are asked to put pen to paper to write an illustrated short story or poem that creatively incorporates their favourite Vodafone Warriors player.
The best classroom entries will be judged by Konica Minolta as well as Vodafone Warriors NRL Reading Captain Jerome Ropati. There will be two winning schools from each of the four geographic regions within Auckland. The winning school will be invited to join the Vodafone Warriors players at a local library for the League in Libraries afternoon. Schools will also be assisted by Konica Minolta to transport the students to the library.
One overall winner will be selected and as a special reward, the child’s class will receive a surprise visit by a Vodafone Warriors player to announce their achievement and present them with a signed Vodafone Warriors jersey. All eight winning classes will receive tickets to a Vodafone Warriors home game following their library visit and a laminated poster signed by Vodafone Warrior Jerome Ropati to hang in their classroom.
