Saint Patrick

Film Festival term 4 2013

On Wednesday night I walked to Sylvia Park with Maxine, Melesini,Taiwan and my cousin. I got there early and I was happy because I didn’t want to miss out the movies. I went inside and I saw Alecia and Patrick and Faleaka there, I said “Hi”. When it was open everyone had to show their ticket so they could get in. After that I asked my cousin to get me popcorn and he went and bought me popcorn. When we got in I shouted “HI SAM, HI MRS TUI”,  it was noisy. When it got dark the movies were about to start. When the movie started I saw Alecia and Patrick on stage. I laughed at the funny ones and when it came to the Maori movie I got sleepy. Some movies were funny and some movies were cool.

At the movie I was happy and my favorite movie was the Magic Teacher.

My trip to Australia

On Thursday I woke up in 3 o‘clock for the plane, I packed my stuff, went to the bathroom to brush my teeth and went to change my clothes and say goodbye to my grandma, grandpa, uncle and cousin. Me, my cousin and my aunt went to my aunts house and picked her up and we all went to the airport.

When we were at the airport we went up stairs and had breakfast. I was sleepy because I woke up too early. What I did was sit down and waited for my aunt to bring the McDonald’s for breakfast. I had a kiwi breakfast.

After we ate the kiwi breakfast we went to do the passport and bag stuff. When we did that my aunt asked if we wanted to go toilet so we went to the toilet. Three of us went to the waiting room for the plane to come at 7 o’clock, that took a long time. While we waited I was writing in my piano book because I have my lesson every Wednesday. Aunt was asleep but she woke up because the women said the plane was there so we went in line to scan the tickets to Australia and went in the plane. We fastened our seat belts and it took three hours to get to Australia, but in Australia we traveled to the Gold Coast.

Maths Reflection

What I think about maths is it is fun because it gives you understanding of numbers. When I pactise my basic facts I learn better and better. At school we use Xtramath, it is a basic facts programme.
In Xtramath it does add, takeaway, Times table and division. What I did in maths today was Maths whizz. In Math whizz I was doing Take away practise. I had to type my answer, what I did was (965 - 100 = ……. the answer was 865). It was fun with math whizz, it was great in maths.

Saint Pius X Feast Day

On Saint Pius X feast day it was a beautiful morning with the wonderful sunshine on friday the 23d August.
There was a whole school mass and we all lined up and walked inside the church. The whole school mass kneeled down and did the sign of the cross. We sat down on the seats with the teachers watching us in church if we talked to a person and so the students were quiet in the church. At church the whole school saw father wearing Green for Ordinary Time in the Liturgical Calendar. We sang a song when we started church and he greeted the students and teachers. After when he had done the gospel Father said “The Gospel of the lord”, then the students and teachers sat down on the chairs. After that finally it was the blessing and once the whole school mass finished we went to the concert in the hall. When the bell rang Room 3 lined up to go to the hall to celebrate Saint Pius  X feast day. The whole school went into the hall and sat down on the floor and were self contolled and behaved ourselves. After that the whole school sang “Happy birthday to Saint Pius X feast day” the helpers: Maxine, Geneveive, Melesane, Latanoa, and Justin gave out the cake to everyone. After that we ate the cake it was delicious and amazing. When we finished the cake Justin came round to the children and put their paper tower in the rubbish bin and the whole school walked to their classrooms and did Maths.

Once upon a time in a beautiful forest there lived grey and brown birds. The birds were very sad because they didn’t have cool colors. the birds all looked the same even though they were different types. The said to each other “whys does nature have color and we don’t they said with jealousy. Everyday they would try rubbing themselves with colorful things, they also tried to squeez juice from fruits but it still came off.

Every time after the rain the were really excited to see the rainbow. Nothing in the nature could ever match the beauty of the rainbow. One day after the rain stopped something was wrong with the rainbow the rainbow was dark not bright anymore. When the rainbow was getting dark the Phoenix came from the rainbow  and asked for help for the birds to save the rainbow. Some of them did not want to help because it was not their business. Some of them went so they went to the top of the Rainbow and they were fighting with and it was hard for them to fight because there were lots of roaches eating the rainbow. They fight and some of them fell to the ground. Then the roaches fell to the ground and the birds save the Rainbow then they went through the rainbow and they have turned into different colours and they were very happy. Then the Phoenix said that they were  the birds of the rainbow. They went back home and the birds who stayed were so jealous because the birds had different colours on and they didn’t.  They should have helped the Phoenix.

Swimming recount


On Monday the students who were swimming went to change into their togs and goggles. The student who were going were me, Rosalina, Christopher, Alecia, Patrick, Victoria, Misiotei, Villiami, Faleaka and Manu.


When the students went to the swimming pool we learnt how to swim with the board. The coach explained to us “put your hands on the front of the board and hold it ”. We put our hands on the front of the board and held it. “and kick” she said “Now two people come to this side of the pool” said the coach.

“Now we are going to put our hands on the bottom of the board and put our whole head in the water without standing up” explained the coach. We were holding the board and doing the right thing just like the coach explained.

Jillian asked “two students come now”, I went with Rosalina. “Now we are going to do arm circles by having a race” so then we went to do it “on your marks, get set, go”. Viliami came 1st, Alecia came 2nd, I came 3rd, Rosalina came 4th, Misiotei came 5th, Victoria came 6th, Patrick came 7th, Faleaka and Manu came last.

Jillian said “Now you guys can have free time but there is no pushing and no drowning other people also no standing on the stairs and jumping off. If you guys do this you will go out for 3 minutes”. I went under the water and I saw Faleaka and I waved my hand. When I went up I saw Faleaka and I talked to her in Tongan. After that she told me “I will go under your legs you go under my legs”.
“Okay” I said. We went to play it then I said “can we play something better?” “okay” said Faleaka. When Jillian said “now we have to get out ” all of us said “okay”. The  students all went out to change in the changing room.

I loved swimming because we got to do races when we were learning.
