Future Aspiration

A surprising message had said to us that some visitors were traveling to our school to talk about there FUTURE ASPIRATION. When they arrived we met some friends that we have already met and some we haven't apparently. A man called Andrew Pattison came to help youth and young people to achieve there future.


Our first speaker that Andrew Pattison introduced was Anthony Samuels, which we call Mr Samuels. Anthony told us about keys to unlock the phrases. No matter what never push your dreams back keep holding on your dreams. One of his phrases said (your past does not have to determine your future), which means just because you do something bad one day doesn’t mean you have to be bad the next day, also he told us a meaning in maori. To miharo hoki which means you are awesome or amazing, never forget that.

The second speaker was a man called Paula. He told us how he nearly died by swimming in a competition. Well first he started swimming at school and he was the best in the school so he got chosen to compete in a competition where other people would be competing as well. Since he’s tall he said that if he gets tired he can stand on his feet and walk. When the sound of the clappers clapped off he went, half ways is always were thy slow down and wear he lets his legs walk for him. But apparently when he went to touch the ground he realize that the pool was deep. Then all of a sudden they couldn't see him. He passed out, the raced stopped and the life guard jump in the pool and pulled him out off the pool. He couldn't breath, so he lifeguard push into his chest until he started coughing that was a sign he’s okay. It was so frightening for his mother seeing him there, also it was embarrassing for him because his friends were laughing at him. So that day he stopped swimming. But later on he became a organisation attitude.

Now go and find your dream, succeed it, strive to it and hold on to it. Remember champions never give up. Keep this in your head, To miharo hoki (“you are awesome”), no matter what believe, believe, and make it real. It will never happen if you don’t believe “Go Hard”! One more thing don’t let your past determine your future.

Good Friend - Example Writing


Intro
Do you have a friend that is always there for you from when you’ve met till now? Well I have so many of them. Good friends are a special thing to me because they will never leave you behind. She or he will always be by your side even though you’ve had up’s and down’s.

You always should have a good friend. Why, because they can stand up for you when people are putting you down. Good friends can keep your biggest secret. They can understand how you feel and encourage you to keep striving to succeed. You need a friend to help you when you ever get stuck on things, like if you get frustrated she/he can calm you down. Its always good to have a good friend.

A good friend can be not like you, you might not have the same personality, style or culture. It doesn’t really matter about that. It’s how you stay together as friends and do everything as a team. Your friend can get disappointed and annoyed at you but it always work out when you apologies.

You always got to be a good friend. To keep your relationship with your friend you got to have a good attitude. If you can be a good friend then you’ll both can be happy.

Make sure you always have a good friend. You always need some back up. Friends are special because you’ll never get another like her/him. A right friend is hard to find but when you find one never let her/him go. If you can be a good friend please show it.

Hope - Rip Writing

Have you ever been caught in a rip when swimming at a surf beach?
It can be dangerous and frightening. Well

I’m here to tell you how to identify a rip, how to avoid one and what to do if you are caught in a rip.

A rip is found in surf beaches. The water comes into shore in waves but it has a way to go back out. This water flowing back out to sea is called a rip.

Normally, there are warnings at the beaches with high rip rate so make sure to look out for those when swimming at an unknown beach. Beaches with high rip rates are highly recommended to stay away from for safety. So if you follow my tips you have a better chance of surviving.

You can identify a rip by the colour of the ocean. When the sand is black the oceans gets darker, when the sand is white the sea get lighter. Another way to identify a rip is how the ocean looks, if the sea is calm and the water are ripples.



If you are caught in a rip instead of panicking stay calm, that will keep you away from drowning and you will get tired. First, see if you can touch the ground, then put your hand in the air. Don’t wave your hand because it will look like you are waving to someone. Try swimming to the sides. When you are there the waves can push you into shore.

Take these tips and use them when there is a problem in the sea. These tips will help you survive from a rip. Remember when you are in trouble in the sea always, always KEEP CALM.

Immersion Assembly - Art Attack" Writing

"Art Attack” everyone shouted. It was our Immersion Assembly and Art Attack was the topic for this term. Each Team had to put on a performance that had something to do with the Topic.The music started as Team 5 walked upon the stage. They were all in white with painting brush, one of them was wearing a Beret (French Hat). I was so interested in Team 5’s performance because I was amazed from it.


Each teacher in team 5 surrounded the drawing board but I couldn’t see a thing they were drawing. My eyes were waiting anxiously to see it. It took minutes and minutes but at the end we didn't have a clue who it was or what it was. Suddenly the teachers realised it was upside down so they turned the painting right side up.  Wow’’ everyone said, my eyes were blown away. It came out great. The 3 paintings were portraits. Mr Jacobson was shown on the left.  The second painting was Mrs Jarman and last but not least Mr Burt. My hands couldn’t wait till we start this Term, painting, drawing and sketching.


Mr Jacobson and Mrs Tele’a talked about Art from the islands and painting with big and small paintbrushes. Now we are back and we are ready to learn. I like Immersion Assembly and I am going to miss them when I go off to college next year.

Tchouckball - Research Game

The game Tchoukball is from Switzerand and it was created by Hermann Brandt in 1970. The game was created because Hermann thought that sports should not just be used to form champions but to just be creative and create a more humane society. Hermann is also an artist and now lives in Canada.

It is still played today, there is a main competition called World Tchoukball Championship. Tchoukball is popular in some countries but not so much in others. There are many competitions for Tchoukball. Though the game was created in Switzerland, there are competitions all over the world.  There is the European World Cup, Asian World Cup, South American World Cup and the Tchoukball World Cup Championship.

Each team is allowed to score on both sides of the field. In the game you are allowed to have 12 players on each team, of which seven may be on the court at any one time. To score a point you have to be an attacking player and it has to bounce off the frame, (The frame is similar to a trampoline) and land outside the D without getting caught by the defence team. Believe it or not, defenders are not allowed to intercept any passes from the attack team. You are only allowed to take three steps and you are not allowed to make more than three passes before you shoot at the frame.

Ki-o-rahi

Ki-O-Rahi is a traditional Maori game that is popular all over New Zealand and is also known in other countries, mainly Europe, France. The game was created in The Legend of Rahi and Patupaiarehe where Rahi’s wife, Patupaiarehe was abducted and taken far away. Rahi had to find her and when he did, Rahi’s tribe and the tribe that abducted Patupaiarehe created Ki-O-Rahi to play instead of going to war.  The game is still going and there are tournaments for adults and children.

There are seven players on each team. There are two types of Ki-O-Rahi, there is the tackle and the non-tackle. Professional adults play tackle in competitions but normally children just play non-tackle with tags. The game is played on a circular field with no outs, the purpose of the game is to hit the te tupu and to defend it by blocking the other team from hitting it with the ball. There are no positions, but there are rules, no more than five people can enter the circle around the te tupu.

If you didn’t know, there is a legend behind this game, it is a story from back in the olden days. The words used in Ki-O Rahi are connected to the story. The story is about Patupairehe stealing Rahi’s wife Tiarakurapakiwai, then Rahi trys to save her. As soon as Rahi rescued his wife, they decided to make peace and they made up the game Ki-O-Rahi. Pou represents the 7 stars of Matariki. Te Tupu represents the rock where Rahi was trapped, Ara represents the pathway of silver ferns.

Hope's Instrument - Instruction

Instrument: Guitar


1. you need a shoe box or box
2. strings
3. pencil for the holes
4. wrapping tube
5. masking Tape


Now cut a hole in the middle of your Shoe box/tissue box. Then cut another hole on the sides for the wrapping tube. Push the wrapping tube through the 2 holes at the side of the box. Then tape the wrapping tube to stable it to the box. Thread six strings across the whole of the box. Use a pencil or a sharp knife to make hole for the string. The strings should be a little bit loose to make some sounds. Attach a strap to your guitar and you are ready to rock!




Hope Explanation - Instrument

When you strum a string of the guitar the string will vibrate and the molecules will move back and forth then it travels to your eardrums and then the electrical signal will go into your brain.

If you drop a stone into the pond the water will move out as the stone drops into the pond. The pond will lift higher than it was before. Like as if you fill a bowl with water and then leave you hand were the height is then put a cup into it and then you’ll see how higher it will be.

A.F.L

Aussie Football League -
9:40am struck and off we went to A.F.L. As I stepped into the hall something caught my attention and my eyes looked straight away at the balls that were layered on the ground. That told me that we were going have a lot of fun.

We started with a little warm up, by playing Rats and Rabbits. I was partners with Quasia, she was a rat and I was a rabbit. When a caller calls “Rabbit!” the rabbits have to run to their home straight ahead before the rats catch them.

First we went over some of the skills we had learnt with Tim in previous weeks.  My favorite skill was doing the ruck. The ruck is how the game starts its similar to the start of basketball. To practice the ruck we first got into threes. Two had to challenge and stand beside each other ready to jump up for the ball when the third person threw it. The aim was to tap the ball onto their side.



Lastly we ended with a game. To play the game we had to get in teams. Our team was called rabbits we had to dodge and get away from the taggers. I sprinted to the other side of the hall before the taggers got me. I leap as the ball went under my leg. “Phew”! I said. I zigzag through the other teams. But luckily I never got out.

We finished A.F.L by gathering together. “Thank you” Tim class 4 said!

Echolocation

How does echolocation work?
Echolocation is used by animals such as bats,dolphins and whales to navigate and locate prey. When they make high pitched noises the sound reflects when it hits a nearby object. It bounces off the object and into the animals sensitive ears. This tells the animals were the prey is.


Ben is a boy that uses Echolocation to navigate himself to places. He makes noises with his mouth, and when he makes sounds with his mouth it will reflect back to him so he will know what is heading to him. It’s just as what bats do. They make a sound and then it will reflect back to it. Then it can tell what is near and how big it is.

Bat are as the same as what marine animals do. But marine mammals use echolocation to transport in their places while using a high pitch sound to find their prey.

Breaking News! I have heard in Africa 234 girls were taken by kidnappers. That is so shocking news, isn't it? Nearly a million women's marching in the Nigerian Capital with signs that says Bring Our Girls Back. Mothers of the girls were so full with tears, disappointed and so so upset. Girls were taken from a high school by kidnappers.


Nothing has brought the girls back. They have not rescued any girls yet. The girls were at the age of 16-18. Parents and other town have joined together to search for their girls. People from other country like USA have also joined to support and search for the girls.   


It’s been about a month now that the Nigerian girls have been kidnapped by the local terrorist group, and families are starting to loose hope. The terrorist are wanting some of their group released from prison.

The girls have been getting support from all around the world. Governments from all around the world have been calling for the girls release. Hopefully the parents will get their girls back soon and everything will come out fine.

My favourite performance though was the Samoan group because they just stood on the stage and showed everyone there magnificent country Samoa. If you were there who did you think was that best and maybe why?



The night had gone so fast and already it was up to our last performance, the Cook Island drummers. The Cook Island group was a so loud that it got me moving to the beat. Then the boys headed onto the stage dancing and showing their culture, girls did the hula onto the stage. It was outstanding.

I Love Sports

       I love Sports


Here’s a question for who’s reading this. Do you love Playing sports? What favorites sport do you like? Well let me answer all those, My name is Hope Loia I really really love sports, I was born to play sports well some people were born to do our things but i’m a sport fan. My favorite sports are especially playing Rugby, Rugby league and netball. But I love all sports really much even though I am bad or good at it. I just want to thank God for a great talent like this. It’s a beautiful talent for me because I really love being in the sun running and passing the ball and doing all those sporty things.



I think sports helps you to keep fit and pump up. It keeps you speedy and fast, if you would love to be speedy and fast then I think that you should train and practice at a sport that you're probably good at.

Thank for reading my story THE END!

Hip Hop Dance

                                 HIP HOP DANCE

Fanning my face as I just finished a couple rounds of doing the dance. Water dripping down my face while I leaned on the wall. So now can you get into your teams” Said Miss King, I rushed towards my teammates before the music had started. The beat of the music started and we let our body’s move to the music. We’d have a competition after a few practices. Our team (Matatua) worked hard because if we win we could win some points for our team. One, two, three as we count the moves as we went on dancing.


OK times up” Miss King said, Miss king turned the music back on, we all started dancing our hardest like as we were showing off. Miss Paget and Miss King walked around to see who would get point for best dancer. The song replayed until they have found the dancer. So who did you picked Miss Paget? Asked Miss King, well I have pick these 4 girls from,  takitimu. How much do you reckon they should get ? 100 points each, WOW! Miss king picked all of the girls in our team, there were 4 of us girls, We got 50 points each. Now everyone give a big clap for our amazing leaders Mele and Levi, they should get 100 each Miss Paget said.

Show not tell

“Amen” I said as I just finished my prayer.I could see the reflection of the moon on the window. Snuggling up into my blankets Shivering cold, my teeth touched and my eyes suddenly closed. I could hear my dad snoring, at that second I grabbed a pillow and shoved my face under it. Boom boom” I could hear loud music playing from the next door.

About Oscar Pistorius

Oscar Pistorius is a famous runner, why? Because there is something special about him , he's a blade runner. I think most of you that are reading this are like what is a blade runner. Well a blade runner is a person that runs with fake legs. Really special right. He's a good athlete and also he's from a great country called South Africa.




One thing that very sad for me was that he Oscar Pistorius killed his girlfriend. But they don't know if he did by accident. I heard that he thought that he was only in the house and he thought that there was a robber in the bathroom so he shot inside. Guess what it was the wife.

Tick tock ,Tick tock” Time was running and it was the last shot, the ball just left his hand, the ball through pass the air aiming for the hoop. Suddenly hit the rim and drop onto the floor. No” the team said. Tama frowned his face and his team looked at him smiling.

Show no tell

Mary jumped high in the air with a big smile on her face as her older sister Jan yelled that they’re leaving in a few minutes. Mary went panicking, rushing under dirty clothing, in her closet everywhere. It drove her crazy, while her sister Jan was getting impatient of waiting so long for Mary.
