Life Education :)

Last week was our last session at the life education caravan. The life education caravan comes to our school every year and is packs son our  school grounds. To learn about choosing the right decisions when we grow up. The purpose of the Life education trust is to assist us when we grow up.

To put yourself in the right shoes you have to chose the right decisions and be respectful. We learn about all sorts of stuff in the life education van, such as drugs and alcohol, we had to learn about these object because it helps us when we grow up and how much it can damage your brain.

We go to life education because when we grow up we don’t have to regret what did when we were little because we only have one life to live. We get ask to answer difficult questions like what is dugs and how it can damage your brain and can make people died , what does drugs look like.  People take drugs because they can’t help themselves and there’ll always refreshed or sometimes kids get hooked up with drugs from there friends and addicted. It just the some to some people that are alcoholic.

The reason why we learn about choosing the right decision is because when we grow up we don’t take drug’s or be an alcohol. Because when we grow up we want to have a  good futures and put ourselves in the right shoe. It was really helpful learning about drugs and alcohol so that we know what’s best for us.

The brain is really easy to get damaged because drugs can change your whole body then change how your brain thinks and works. Alcohol can also damaged your brain because it makes you drunk and when you're drunk you can’t think properly so he sometime throws think around or do really bad think and even say hurtful words. That can make your brain not work properly.

It was really helpful going to the Life education caravan because it helped us what drugs and alcohol  are and what they can do to your body. Every time we go there we learn something new that we can go home and share with our mum and dad. So when I grow up I know not to take drugs and alcohol because of what I learnt in the Life education caravan.

Algebra :)

Netball :)

Netball is a really fun sport,  if you are interested in netball you would have to be able to keep up with the fitness, be confident  in the position you play. Most importantly use team work skills such as communication and play with your heart and giving it your best shot. The objective of this game is to practice lots more footwork and also playing as defense or attack. There are different positions for attackers and different positions for defense. It begun in England in the 1890’s  it is modification of basketball

Netball is a passionate  sport  to me because it’s  my  favorite sport and my team enjoys playing it.  If you’re like me and play G.K  is a defender that stays in the circle to block the other opponent GS. You might enjoy it because you can try to take the ball of your opponent's hands.  It can be difficult  at  times but most of all you have stuck on your  opponent .
GS goal shooter , GA goal attack  are the one’s that stay in the circle and work together to get the their shot’s in. GD goal deafen, GK goal keeper try’s to get the ball back so that GA and GS don’t get their shot’s in. WA wing attack  , WD wing deafen try to bring the ball down to the court for their team to get them some point. Last but not least C  , center run’s up and down the court to help assist their team.  

My favorite team is New Zealand representatives the  silver ferns because they’re good and they give it their best shot . The goal Keeper Irene Van Dyke who has recently retired and Maria Tutaia who also plays the position of Goalkeeper. Ever since I was a kid I have been inspired by these two role models. I like Maria because she is one of the most skilled long-range shooters and I just think that’s awesome. I really love Irene Van Dyk because although she’s originally from south africa she did a great job at representing New Zealand out there in the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow - Scotland. Watching a few games of Net - Ball it means something to me                                          

I would love and like to follow my dreams by being a  Silver Ferns Net - Ball and when that comes in a few years in the future I will be  just like them and hopefully they will be proud of me and when I play their possession.

The things that I learnt in the caravan was to make good decision when I grow up. I learnt about all the drug’s and what they look like , also to have the good friends so that you won’t hook up with the wrong friends and get onto trouble.

World one war :)

Today is the 100th year anniversary of the World War 1. We call it the 'Lest We Forget' because it means that we remember it and never forget it. We thank the people that went and did everything they could to save our land and people. All school’s will have their flags raised and remembering the 100th World War 1 Anniversary. We share our love to all the people who died for us. The flags should be half mast to remember all the people that were in the war and the people that died.
