Today in the middle block TPS had a duffy assembly. We had 3 role models and their names were Madison (Samoan), Katherine (unknown), and Phillipe (Tongan). Madison, Katherine, and Phillipe are opera singers and they all started singing at a young age and in church choirs. Today they came and talked to us about how they got into singing and why it is important to read. English wasn't Phillipe's first language so when he was young it was hard for him to understand english but once he got into reading he got better at it. Maddison had nightmares when she was 3 so her grandmother who was blind had to stay up all night and learn the words of the book with her hands so she could read to Maddison. Katherine had her dad read to her and she had to learn how to read so she could finish of the book everytime her dad will fall asleep. Philipe said when you read always have a partner his partner was his older brother. Maddison told us and I really found this interesting she said that every book is a treasure and that when you read it, it takes you to a whole different place. I learnt that it is important to read because it helps you with your writig and spelling. What I enjoyed was when they told us about the different notes and when they sang to us. The names of the notes were
Girls: Soprano for high, and Alto for low
Boys: Tenor for high, and bass for low.
I was amazed at their voices and if you missed out here they are:
