Koru Games

Over the last three days the year 7&8's have been busy playing sports at the Koru Games tournament.

* The things that I really enjoyed were playing against other schools netball teams and seeing schools that I never thought existed as well as seeing others that I play against on Saturday. I also liked how my coach helped us with the things we were not so good at.

* When I think back to the beginning of the year, I have really have improved on sticking with my partner and being fast off the line.

Overall I found the Koru Games really fun ,enjoyable and have some really great memories and wish that I could play the Koru Games tournament again next year.

Remember the tough times as a kid, being teased because of your gender,race as well as how rich or poor you are well It's hard being a kid. Because our parents make all of the decisions when half the time the decision our parents make is the opposite of what we really want, we have to do a whole bunch of chores. Although we wouldn't be able to survive without our parents because they bring home all the money,food and clothes. Also while Balancing six hours of school, homework,chores and after school activities.

I live in a African Palace with my Brother Hansel he is such a lazy person oh I forgot to introduce myself i'm Princess Gretel but i'm not just a Princess i'm an Evil Princess. I work with my evil step mother and together we boss around my Father and my Brother not that they have any idea about our little scheme.

Hansel come here right now I said
What says Hansel
That is no way to speak to a Princess reenter and do it how you are supposed to.
Yes your highness what may I do for you
Go and find me a Prince to marry and take Daddy with you. You have two days to complete this quest if not something unexpected is coming your way.
Ok your highness what do you wish to see in this prince
Well the firstly make sure he looks nothing like you and has the greenest of all eyes and wears clothes that look royal as I said you have two days to complete this quest. So that I can have myself an African Prince

So off set my Father and Hansel on the safari of finding me my dream Prince. So now my mother and I can plot our scheme of making the love antidote so that my Prince with do anything I say any time I want and will want anything that want. As well as this my step Mother can find herself a better King to rule the land with. Enough about that it's time for my mani and pedicure as well as my face mask as I need to look my best for my future husband.

Finally the two days were up and they had found my prince his name is John he has the greenest eyes I've ever seen and luckily looks nothing like Hansel they did well on their little safari. John seemed awfully off about marrying me I mean come on who wouldn't want to marry me. As it turns out mother flushed the love antidote down the toilet and the antidote was

My Reading

My Writing

This Is My Explaination Writing we had to base it on a career that sounds interesting to use I choose a  Zoologist but as I reasearch more about it I realised that it's not the job for me.My goal for writing is to link my paragraphs to  link your paragraphs you need to make sure that you remind the reader of the piece they have read above as well as using a connective e.g Although , after , as well as just to name a few.

My career goal is to be a Zoologist.As a Zoologist you study animals such as that you do lab and field work as well as giving talks to community groups, writing reports and scientific articles as well as studying the relationship between the animals and the environment that they live in.The chances of a job as a Zoologist is average due to the limited opportunities in some areas of employment,but high demand in others .The reason I want to be a Zoologist is that I like working with animals and I want to know more about animals and the environment they live in. I have also grown up with animals around me and I love and care for animals.

As to that these attributes best are describe me the best are quite,sporty,competitive,responsible and observant .Some attributes that will help me be a better Zoologist I can be are being curious, connecting,communicating  respectfully around the animals and others as well as being resilient.

Although these attributes will help me become a Zoologist I may not get a job as a Zoologist there could be a possible chance that there are no job opportunities as a Zoologist when I graduate with a bachelor of science. Luckily there are other job opportunities including Physiologist,Marine Biologist,Micro Biologist,Biochemist and a Agricultural/Horticutural Scientist.

                                  with the sky so bright .Soon it was the moon's  
                                  time to go as the sun light up the town for those.

Leadership Peer Mediation

On Thrusday I did Peer Mediation, what is Peer Mediation you may ask well Peer Mediation is where you put your name down as well as getting trained up you will then become a Peer Mediator. While you are on Peer Mediation you will walk around your school (you may have set zones) for example I walk around the field and the year three classroom's. We also need to look to see if any other children have problems or if we see anyone upset then you ask them whats wrong and if they want to sort out the problem or not. But in some cases you will get one person who wants to sort it out but the other person doesn't or someone thinks they are in trouble but there not so they run off. When I did Peer Mediation on thursday there were no problems so we were just walking around making sure there were no problems or anyone upset.
