Transition at Tamaki Collage

Usually on Thursday we have tech, but for the first time we had a Transition (meaning: Moving from one part of life to the next) .

We had three rotation and they were English,Music and Science,we were taken by T.C prefect and we were escorted to Music class.

In Music class we met a fantastic teacher named Mr Ta’le’fo’ne, the things we did in music was that we had to come up with a rap about our school,community and MYSELF. We were divided into 4 groups of 4  and was send to a desk to think.

After we were sent to a room to practise and got ready to rap or sing in front of the whole class.

At the end ,Music was fun and educational and next year I hope I get to be in that class.

Thank you Turuhira for reading my post!

In our class we have been going to swimming lesson every Wednesday, during swimming lessons I was doing work because I was not allowed to swim due to problems I had.

Well, what I learnt was a technique that will keep your temperature warm well you are cold in the sea called the“Huddle”if you are with many people you should make a circle(facing Inwards like a football team huddling) so you can share the body heat to each others keeping the temperature warm not risking your life getting hypothermia, if you are going “SOLO” you should cross your arms and legs lifting your knees up near your chest to keep your temperature warm called the “HELP”(heat escape lessening position).

I learn also that if your boat capsized in the middle of nowhere in the sea you should grab any floating object that's nearby and wait for rescue.

A MUST DO THING BEFORE ENTERING THE WATER” Wear a life jacket, It could save your life.

Manaiakalani Film Festival

Every year on a day we have a film festival called the “Manaiakalani Film Festival”, schools from around the area make films that will be showed at  Hoyts at Sylvia Park.

Our class(room 19) made a  wonderful movie related to how you treat people.

Wednesday was the day were our year 7’s and 8’s was taken to the great hoyts we watched 20 different movies from other school and our school too.

I thought all the movies was great but the two movies that got my attention was room 18 silent  movie from PES and the “One direction” movie from TC.

The film festival was fun and I hope next year I get to see other fantastic movies from school around the area.  

Thanks for Samson for checking my work.

Driving To His Goals

After two years since the accident Matt made to Robs car, Matt was ready to learn how to drive, he jump in the drivers seat and this time he was tall enough to reach his legs to the pedals.

Rob the owner of the car taught him all the basic skills to drive,then he took him for a little spin,after 3 more years matt was able to drive,he was going to go get his license but first he had to do a test, his first test he was 20% low to be able to get his license ,then he came the next day to try again but he was 30% lower this time.

After he tried and tried he went be to Rob because he was sick of the test,Rob threw his car keys to Matt thinking that he had his license and then they zoomed off in the red car.

Matt was feeling at the top of the world until he and Rob was stopped by the police,Rob didn’t worry but Matt did,the police ask for his license but he said he didn’t have one, he was soon given a warning for driving without license.

Matt soon went back to study for his next test, he stayed up for the next few month up till 1 in the morning before getting knocked at from being tried.

The day of the test he was confident that he was going to pass,the test went on and he was on fire, he wrote this and trick that and did everything that he studied about, then he waited.

Soon his result come to his face and his face was full of excitement,he went to Rob house and then he drove the car away with happiness.
