Mairangi bay

. Yayh were going to Mairangi bay. Us Year 7's were very excited to hear that we were going to Mairangi bay. It was a chance to get out of school and have fun at the beach.
Getting on the bus was making us unpatient. As soon as we got there we all jumped up with joy. At first we were asked to go to upstairs to there club house. We all sat down while 3 Life Guards introduced there self. There names were Meghan, Rosey and Rechal.

Later on we went outside and sat on the grass to hear what was happening next. We got taught that they use there rubber boat for rescuing and other stuff. We also had an demonstration from
Nathaniel, Moses and Casey.
It was morning tea now. We only had 15 minutes. After that we played Bull rush and Life guards coming. It was alright until we had to go back the clubhouse. We done a quiz and learning about different waves. Now its lunchtime.

People were playing touch and burring there self under the sand. Lunch time was over and then it was time for swimming. Unfortunately I didn't go swimming because I didn't want to. Even though I never went swimming I hanged out with Helen Tui, Kezia and Vaha.

It was funny. People who were swimming looked like they were having fun. Lots of fun. Soon it was time to head back to school. Tanielu done the thank you speech while we sat down and listened and also agreed to it. So we had lots of fun and I hope it would happen again.

Mairangi bay ROCKS!

Getting our new netbooks

Yesterday on the 16th of November we finally got our new netbooks. As well as getting our new netbooks, yesterday we got shown how to use it and keeping it safe. We also had a chance to  play on it. It was really fun. Having our new netbooks has made the Year 7’s even more happy. I would also like to thank my school principal Mr Burt and his lovely wife Mrs Burt for trusting us to have our own new netbooks.

Swimming

Yesterday which was the 2nd of November my class Room 19 and I went swimming after lunch in our brand new swimming pool. Our new swimming pool is located on our school netball courts. Unfortunately I never went swimming because of my leg so instead I was filming my class swimming and also having fun.

Since me and Jane were filming we actually thought that the swimming pool was cool. Everyone was having fun and they even done a circle and started singing the National Anthem.

Chris the swimming teacher started to teach them how to float on there back and dog paddle. Soon everyone started doing what they were suppose to be doing. So everyone had fun.

After that Chris decided that there should be a handstand competition so we did. He also decided that there should be two groups so there was two groups. One group had to go to the other side of the pool and the other team to the other side of the pool.

Finally it was time for the finals. The teams had to pick one person from there group to verse the other groups team player. So in the finals were Sharon and Cruz. Unfortunately Cruz won.

Later on it was time to go home. Some students left the pool happy and some were sad because they wanted to stay in the pool a bit longer. Our teacher Ms Tito told us that we could relax in the sun. So some students relaxed and some just went for a run.

It was fun and cant wait for next tuesday.

Optimist Dinghy

On the 3rd of September 2010, my group and I were asked to create a little project based on what our reading task was. As you can you see on the left is a picture of an Optimist Dinghy. This is what we were asked to do. We were asked to use Comic Life to design our little project. So hope you like it.


List the things that have to be checked:

- When you sail you must always have your
boat or dinghy facing the wind.
- If you are wearing a lifejacket you have to make sure that it is fully on and that your zip has benn ziped on.
- Always check the weather.
- Have you got the bailer tied in because if
you dont then if your boat gets filled up with water, what are you going to use to scoop out the water that is in your boat.
- Last but not least the drain plugs.
Always check if the drain plugs are in. Why? As I said before about water filling up your bPrProxy-Connection: keep-alive
Cache-Control: max-age=0

y-Connection: keep-alive
Cache-Control: max-age=0

t. Well instead of using a scoop to scoop out the water you can actually use a drain plug to stop the water filling your boat.

Thanks for reading.

My Mihi

In class my Teacher Miss Tito asked if we could write our own Mihi for every morning. Why? because every morning Miss Tito would ask if there is someone that would like to share there Mihi and the other reason why we are doing Mihi's because it is a part of Te Reo Maori, and to practise how confident we are. So when I get chosen to the Mihi I would say=

Ka tangi te titi
Ka tangi te kaka
Ka tang hoki ahau
Tiheiwa Mauriora


He mihi whanui tenei kia tatou katoa kia koe te rangatira e
Tena koe mo to mahi e whakamoemiti ki to tatou matua i te rangi


Kiaora koutou kua hui mai nei ki tenei wahi, ki te mau mai i te aroha,
ka nui te koa mo to koutou kai ngakau ki te aro mai ki te hapai I nga take E pa ana ki te wananga. No reira tena koutou tena koutou tena ra tatou katoa

For those who have lost there families or friends from the Tsunami I am very sorry. I hope that you all are all - allright coping with this awful tragedy but may you all be all - right and for those who cleaned up the mess in Samoa thankyou very much.

Graphics is Fabulous

In Graphics we have been using Adobe Illustrator
to draw our designs. We used the shape tool and the pencil tool to draw our designs. We also used the linear and Radial Gradient tools fill our designs with colour and have made our lettering go round in a circle by using the text on a path tool. Our Graphic teacher is Miss Ferguson. She is amazing and good at drawing and her dance moves at Tech is cool.

On Wednesday 17th March 2010, My church and I went Ice-Skating. It took us about maybe 5 or 10 minutes to get to Paradise in 3 Vans. We went there at 7:00pm and started skating at about 7:30. We finished at 11:00pm and arrived at church at 11:10 or 20.But when I was Ice-Skating it was pretty hard but when I tryed my best it came out to be perfect.So it was so FuN. The main thing that we had to do was to skate on Ice and to just have FuN.
