Andrew Patterson

 On Friday the 20th of November, our year 8's received a very special visit from Andrew Patterson. Mr Patterson came to our school just to give our year 8's some information about high school, because in High School it is a hard thing to figure and even figuring out what College you are going to attend next year.

Cindi in da house

For the past 4-5 weeks, we have been working on our school production. We are remaking the story of Cinderella but Glenn Innes styles, It is called Cindy in da house everybody in the production has been working very hard.

We are having our first school rehearsal for our production, but there are a few things we need to work  like our dancing and also our acting. We are dressing up as our characters and putting on make up.

I think we are going to do well, because we have a very good supporting staff and I hope we all do everything good

Miss Universe New Zealand

Yesterday afternoon, we had visitors from the Miss Universe New Zealand contestants. They came to visit our senior school, their where twenty overall but only sixteen of them came.

We had 3 girls in each classroom, it was really interesting to hear their stories, because the contestants where talking how they want to chase their dreams and being an entrepreneur. Each of the beauty pageant had 2 minutes to talk to our class

One thing that got to me was when Gabriel "said that you should never wait for your dreams always chase your dreams".

How people receive and spend money

Intro: What is money? money is banknotes and coins that are used to purchase something you want or something you need. Also money is currently everywhere in the world, people use money to purchase or buy things like shoes, food, clothes and also different kind of things.

Where  do  you get  money? There are various ways people around the world receive money. Like if you where an adult you would get money by getting a job and working hard, And also a lot of kids get money by doing all the chores at home. Money can come from many places like your relatives.

How people spend money? I see many people around the community spending and purchasing there money on snooping through the market for things to provide for there family. Also when people see things they would like to wear they would buy it with there own money, only if you are over 21.

When I obtain money? I really struggle with saving my money, because there are so many things I would like to eat or buy. If I receive money, by one of my relatives I would spend it on things.

As the the years flow by I’ve learnt a lot of things about money, that if you spend all the money that your relatives have gave you don’t spend it right away because you might have things you like. Also I would always save my money

Mega Earthquake

                                        Mega Earthquake

New Zealand (geologists) have found evidence that a large earthquake hits beneath central New Zealand.  A ‘megathrust’ is a very large earthquake that occurs in a subduction zone.

An subduction earthquake is when earthquakes occur on the underside of the upper plate. Where both of the plates meet,rather than meeting within the upper plate.

A group of scientists have found evidence, that two huge earthquakes that ruptured in the southern part of the Hikurangi Margin for the past 1000 years.

The margin marks the collision zones between the pacific also the Australian tectonic plates. This evidence proves that the boundary located under the Cook Strait-Marlborough area, this evidence suggest that a large earthquake could eventually rupture.

Subduction earthquakes have the strength to significantly a lot larger magnitude than upper plate fault ruptures. There could be a massive effect on a larger area, and more likely to trigger tsunami.

Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels

                                Home Sweet Home
Walking home with medals on my chest
knowing that it time to rest.
seeing all the soldiers who are wounded,
also looking at how they could survive.
A lot of lives where sacrificed
just as kids were born that night
I can’t forget what the soldiers have done
just for our countries that we have won.

Aspiration Talk

Today we heard from Marcus Winter aka The Sandman and Louis Gordon -Latty. We were all blessed to have them at our school,also there was Andrew Patterson he was introducing our two visitors,will met him last year he was very hilarious.

Louis Gordon- Latty was really inspirational because he was really into basketball,and basketball is one of my favorite games I've played. He is an inspiration to me because he records a lot of his games,and has a lot of detail,because he added a fans and commentary into there game.

What stood out for me was when Marcus Winter talked about how he was growing up and mentioned about the life he is in now. The inspirational thing I heard was when Marcus said "when ever you get bounced you will always have to bounce back," I have never seen one of his art,but when our teacher Mr Wiseman showed us a video of his art I was really amazed of what he does.

I am glad that they came to see our year 7 and 8's,because what I have loved about them is that they had a lot of quotes. Also they never gave up even though they got bounced from a lot of things,the thing I learnt today was to never give up and keep trying.

A day out with my friends

Guess what? Poly fest started this week. I was so excited that we were going with our friends and with our teachers. The year 7 and 8's had a opportunity to go to Parakai pools if we behaved well at the Poly fest, Mrs Tele'a was talking about how we have to behave when we are at Poly fest. I was wanting to go on the first day but we couldn't .

The student's from different schools and our year 7 and 8's were so lucky, because got to meet John key. He had a lot of photographers wanting to take a photo of him but his securities kept on telling them to go but I was excited.

Different activities all around Poly fest. Our first activity was to play squash the point of the game was to try and get the fastest serve, the fastest girl's serve was 111 and the fastest speed of the day was 124 and that was my score. My favorite activity of the day was squash, because I had a lot of fun and it had high scores the fastest in the world was 263. and at the end we got to watch some performances and walked around the stadium twice.

I hope I could go to Poly fest with the year 7 and 8's, because I had a lot of fun with my friends and all the parents that came.
