You Are Special

Once upon a time in a small Village, humans weren’t the ones that lived there, the ones that lived there were Wemmicks. In Wemmick Village they have stars and dots. When some Wemmick shows off their talent a wemmick should give them at least more than one Star but if they don’t have any talent and they think they do but all they do is fail they get a Dot. A Dot means your not very good at doing things. There was a Wemmick who walked into town and her wood was nice and smooth, a group of Wemmicks tried to put a Star on her but it wouldn’t stick, they put a Dot on her but it wouldn’t stick either. Punchinello went and said to this fine Wemmick “Well hello there my name is Punchinello and do you know why nothing is sticking on you?” and she replied, "My name is Lucia and your answer is to go and see Eli”,

"Eli why Eli?

"Eli is our maker and he lives in a house on top of a hill".

The next day Puchinello went and visited Eli, he saw Eli,but then he got scared so he tried to quietly sneak out but then he heard his name so he turned with a very awkward face. Eli said “Well Hello Punchinello,I heard you have a question for me and I will tell you the answer now, come here everyday and you will see what happens”. So everyday Puchinello went and visited Eli and everyday soon Punchinello realised that the Stars and Dots didn’t mean anything so all the Dots fell off one by one.

Tuesday the 2nd of August 2011 the actual year when our school finally gets a swimming pool. Today is a very special day for the kids at St Pius X because we actually get to go for a swim at school, most of us have been waiting for this moment! When it was 8:30am before school started Miss Oldfield told some of us that we are going swimming at 9:30am,9:30am it was so we all got separated into 2 groups. When we are in the pool we get into groups called Dolphins and Sharks and I was in Dolphins.First group-A went for a swim, when Group-B went (that was the group I am in.) to get changed we found some of group-a over there and they told us in a shivering way that “When you get out of the pool it is freezing!!” Later when we had finished helping each other girl with our swimming caps, we walked into the tent that was so warm for me that I did not want to walk out! When we all settled down in the pool a guy who was teaching us our lessons was named Mr.Burton,first he told us to put our hands on the side and arms straight out,so we did,then we played a little game called Captains coming. We had directions the right side of the pool was called port? and the left side was called Starboard?. Later on we had to swim back and forth, then we played another game called Salmon says.(Its mostly like Simon says.)After we had finished we said thank you to Mr. Burton and walked up the stairs and when we were walking down the other stairs we had to walk down backwards.When us girls had finished drying our hair and getting changed we we back to class......

My Experience in Australia!

It was pitch black outside I couldn’t see a thing, it was the first day of the holidays and it was 1:30am, very wrong way to start the holidays. My Mum pulled the blanket right off, she said that I was being fussy for about 10min, (because I did not want to wake up this early!) when I got to the airport there was like about nearly a thousand tears coming right at me! It was so sad to see all these people crying because they were saying goodbye to their love ones, I only had five tears coming down my face. Later on when we had arrived we had to grab our luggage and go through security, when we walked out we had all these people rushing at us and by us I mean my mum’s best friends sister and her son ,two teenagers, one elderly and two young ladies. After a week we all rushed to the cars and set off to Dream World! On our way there you can see a MASSIVE TOWER OF TERROR it is four times bigger than the fear fall here in New Zealand! The Tower of terror takes you up and you will never know when it is going to drop you.There is so many rides I can’t remember them all! Next day, we went to White Water World! There is a Massive ride that is like a big green Cyclone but it is called The Green Room, I went on it it is outrageous. A few days later we went to the city and the place we went to was called Kangaroo point, we went there in the night time, the views over there are gorgeous, I am positive that everyone would have loved it, after we took lots of photos we headed back home. When it was our last day over there we had a lovely barbecue, later when we all, (well most of us) had desert and in our desert we had yogurt,grapes,pineapple lumps,marshmallows and I think some milk. (I forgot the name of it so I just told you what was in it.) After we had our lovely desert we all went to bed. Well our two weeks was finished, it was a very sad departure because we had so much fun and the holidays came by so fast but we had a great time and a lot of fun. When we said our good byes and then left. When we arrived back here in Auckland everyone that was there was so pleased to see us so we went back home had a rest and spent the rest of our holidays with our family.

Kite Making!

On Monday 19th of June it was pouring with rain, minute after minute. It was so horrible.
At Morning Tea we had to stay inside so that we didn’t get sick. Later on in the afternoon Room 4, 5 and 6 ran to the hall. After we all settled down Allie and her Matariki group came in and introduced themselves to us, but just before we began Allie showed us some kites from nearly all over the world like Japan,Thailand and other ones that I can’t remember. Later we all got into our classes and made separate circles in our classes like Room 4, 5 and 6 all made circles with their class. First we had to listen up carefully or else we wouldn’t know what to do? When they finished off telling us our instructions we started to get straight to work, we didn’t have much time on our kites because Allie and her group had to go to the next school. We then packed up and flew our kites. We said our good-byes and went back to class. There was a little change when Mr M. was around because he let us stay and play 3 rounds of BULL-RUSH. Afterwards when we finished off our fun we went back to class.

It was last Friday that the whole St Pius X school was having a fast, speedy, exciting day who loved running. Half of our school didn’t really like running and the other half loved running that was because they were so fast at running. During morning tea we had to get dressed. Later on we got sorted out into our teams, the teams names were Kiwis, {colour yellow} Geckos, {colour green} Tuis, {colour red} Keas, {colour blue} that was the team that I was in but that was great because my favourite colour was blue!
After we all got sorted out we went on to the school field and sat on the tarpaulin's they were all coloured BLUE! We all had to participate in a race or a game, first up 5 year old lets begin the RACE! First up the ladies Claudia was in the blue Keas! Mr Gaffney shouted get your make get set go! We all shouted {the Keas} go Claudia run! So she ran faster and faster then we all shouted {Keas} Wow! she won the race she was so pleased that she beat the other children! Gentlemen {5 year old boys} please step this way, so they all stepped to the starting line, Mr Gaffney repeated him self and shouted go! They all blasted off, racing to the finish line kiwis won be we still clapped for them even though we came last remember it’s not about winning it’s to see your speed, strength and having fun on a day like this.
Now lets move on to the next race Masters and Miss’s {6 year old’s } get ready to race! I forgot who won the 6 and 7 year old Masters and Miss’s race because I wasn’t paying attention properly. When they called the 8 year old children I got really nervous and worried because that was the closet age to 9 year old, because the races always start from 5 year olds up to 13. I don’t have that good of a memory with races and kind of ages. Mr Gaffney repeated himself and shouted GET, YOUR,MAKE GET SET,GO! They all started up and raced as fast as they could {even though it was their first race for some of them.}

Dangerous, Frighting,
Scary, horrible, furious.

You never want to be involved in one.
