On Friday 1st May Room 9 had a celebration because we had the
thirty thousandth visitor to our blog. It was during the holidays
on April 17th at 4:50:41 am. They came from Madrid in Spain.
We had party table cloths with balloons on and we had delightful,
delicious cupcakes. Each cupcake was covered in white icing.
They had a candle (red, green or purple) and some little silver sugar
balls. There were 30 cupcakes and each one had ten silver balls on
and each silver ball stood for one hundred visitors.
Ready with the extinguisher...
Miss Pope stood by with the fire extinguisher just in case. Mr
Fawcett lit the candles and we sang a Happy 30 000 song. Then Mr
Fawcett took some photos. With a powerful breath we all blew out
the candles together.
Finally we went outside and ate our cupcakes on the deck. They
were more than delicious, they were scrumptious. We’ll have our
next party at forty thousand visitors. We can’t wait!

It doesn’t seem long ago since Room 9 did this
last year, but I just checked and our class blog has had 29, 169
visits. It took 3 years to reach 20,000 and just 6 months to reach
nearly 30,000 visits.
On April 4, 2009...
We have about 100 visitors every day from all over the world, but
that won’t be enough for us to reach 30, 000 before we finish school on
It looks like we’ll have to celebrate our 30, 000 milestone after the
holidays. Well done to everyone who has published their writing,
artwork, photos or movies. Special thanks to the Room Niners,
parents and family who have commented on blog posts and an extra special
thank you to all the people in New Zealand and around the world who have visited and commented.
Cupcakes all round next term! [shall we make them and bake them ourselves?]
