Prayers.

Personal Prayer :- 

Majestic Spirit, I thank you for getting us through another year, and protecting us. I ask that through this break that you protect us, and guide us when we are lost. I also ask that you help those who need you blessing as they are struggling, and fighting for their lives.  Amen. 

Reflection for the year..

Our year has come to it's time where we will all say good bye. This year has been a very horrendous, horrendous but amazingly, fun and full of surprises. This chapter of my journey has been amazing though there were downfalls it still turned out as an amazing experience. Out of all my chapters and experiences throughout the years here, I think this is my favourite of all. Tears had been shed between us all, but there were more smiles than tears.. Majority of the things that had happened were what you would call, unimaginable. Overall this school is amazingly, unpredictable but the best thing about this is the love that is shared among us all.

Holidays, End of week 2

Sadly our holidays are coming to an end, and all students are having to go back to school. Though for most it is sad that we have to go back but for others, well others can not wait to get back to school. For myself I can not wait to get back, as I'll see my friends whom I've dearly missed and a bit of the teachers. But school wouldn't be school without the teachers so of course I've missed them, but just a little bit. Week two of my holidays weren't as busy as week one. I had not done as much as last week as I had only gone; to the movies again, gone to the Pakuranga Night Markets, I had also attended a production at Selwyn College and that pretty much sums my week two holidays.

Holidays, Week 1.

Yesterday had marked the last day of the first week of the holidays. During that week a few things had happened, I had gone to the movies with friends, my cousin and I had gotten paid for our spring cleaning jobs, and lastly 85,000 homes were cut off with power. Shopping centres, were empty as if it was owned by a ghost town, but the roads were flooded with vehicles everywhere. The power cut had lasted from 4am to around 5pm, for my family we found this power cut pretty hard as our landline, mobile phones, laptops, electrical appliances, and also internet connection had not been working in those hours.

Holidays..

Holidays have already begun and my plans for them aren't as bad as before, because I have more things to do. My cousin and I are getting paid to do some spring cleaning around the house, so that's not so bad. My friends and I are planning to hang out, and my other friends we're planning to have a day out together. Hopefully I don't get completely sick before all of this as I am picking up the flu. So far my holidays have just been an add on to me being grumpy, as my brother had thrown the puppy on my head while I was sleeping and the puppy had scratched half my head.

Reflection : Art diorama work, how our group worked.

 
Our group had been given a task to create a diorama with as many inputs in a dairy farm that we could make/create and put into our display. We had many ideas based on the inputs but I think we struggled a bit to put them all into the diorama. Our inputs that we have displayed in our diorama are ; Electricity, Stock, Buildings, Machinery and animals.  Overall I think we worked well as a group and the work that we have produced was pretty good.

Expressive Writing

This is just a bit of my expressive writing. Some may describe this feeling as warm and fuzzy, though i’m not saying that their wrong but i’m not saying that thier right either. For me it’s there’s more than just that warm and fuzzy feeling. The feeling to me is beyond happy,

Weekly Reflection

This week I have achieved one of my goals in maths which was to order fractions with different denominators. For writing I am still understanding how to add more details by using descriptive words, similies and metaphors. I think I have not progressed enough in Language and Languages.

St Pius X Feast Day and Cross Country..

Ambury Farm

Expressive Writing

Pain, it’s never welcomed by anyone, obviously.. But the thing about it is that it demands to be felt. Though this saying is sad what makes it even sadder is that it’s true. Many people try and disown pain as it owns them, but majority of those people have failed.

Expressive Writing

Broke down, as each teardrop fell from their eyes, tried to help but all I did was make the pain harder to bear. I was in shock and lost because I didn’t know what to do, though it was hard enough to even look at how much pain and hurt they were going through. Heartache became worse and worse as the pain grew.. This heartache took over me like the way it took over them, I had never felt this much pain..

Weekly Reflection - Week 5.

Friday 22nd August 2014

Language - I have learnt many new things in the language we are learning, Spanish. I have learnt how to count, greet and I started learning the colors.   

Reading - I have gotten a better understanding of verbs and common verbs. Other than that I don't think I have achieved any of my reading goals.  

Expressive Writing

Learn : My learn while doing this writing is to use correct punctuation consistently, my learn is also to use interesting vocabulary and lastly is to make sure that all my sentences make sense.

That one person that gives you a different, special feeling, that feeling that you just can't describe, that feeling that all of a sudden your lost of words. Only that person can put a smile upon your face when no one else can. That person who can make your day with a simple smile or hello. That person who is the light of your day, gosh, I'm lucky to have this person in my life. When in pain that person makes it easier to bear, their words are just gobbsmackingly uplifting. Though this person is not always around they try their best to be, there's never a dull moment when we're together.

Oh how this person knows me to well, better than myself at times, this person is unbelievably different in many ways. Everyone has flaws especially this person but I won't list them because the list is endless as for their love, and compassion towards others. Many things hit me when I hear the name of this person, butterflies, a smile that causes my jaws to ache, and happiness.

Oh how this does not even begin to show/tell how lucky and thankful I am for this person.

Expressive Writing

Learn : I am continuing to use specific and interesting vocabulary, I am also learning to consistently use correct punctuation, and lastly I am making sure that all of my sentences make sense.

I have underlined the specific and interesting vocabulary I had used in my writing.
**********

Things came flooding through my head as they told me. Confusion, happy, angry, or sad, I had no idea how to feel or what to do. One thing I was sure of is meeting them all. Knowing this changed how I thought about my position in his life. Mixed emotions is how I could describe it but I was also confused, shocked and amazed of how this could happen.

Today I am still confused and not quite sure meeting them is a good idea. Bad ideas were rushing in, though I was lost I still had a heart which was telling me not to do it.

Expressive Writing.

Many feelings had hit me when I'd found out that there was a possibility of my Auntie not surviving her operation. As we got to the hospital my Auntie smiled at my brother, cousin and myself as if nothing was gonna go wrong. When we had arrived home late that evening I asked my Mum to ring my Aunt, just to see how she was doing but she didn't pick up so that meant she had already left for her operation.

My holidays, so far.

The holidays are soon coming to an end, sadly and so far the holidays have been better than the last holidays. Last week my younger cousin flew up from Wellington and spent a few days with myself and my other cousins, so it was a full house. Anyway we had gone bowling and movies which was pretty fun but then all that had soon come to an end as he had to then fly down to Christchurch on that Saturday evening during that week. On that same week my aunt, cousin, brother and myself had gone to Auckland Hospital to visit our other Aunt who had stayed there a few days. Not long until we had moved onto the second week of the holidays. On that week we hadn't really done much but go to the movies again and do chores. As the week is coming to an end we still have plans, but other than that we have to prepare for school.

WHAT YOU NEED: a selection of 3 different type of milk
clear container

WHAT TO DO: Put  an equal volume of each type of milk in a clear container
Place each container in the freezer

Record the time it takes to each variety to freeze.


Types of milk :-
Soy milk
Almond milk 
Condensed milk

Science Experiment

Aim : Can we get water out of milk?

Equipment : Frying pan, and a spatula.

Prediction : What do you think will happen and why?
I think the milk will boil, then bubble up and lastly maybe dissolve.

Method : What do you think made the changes?
​The milk started to boil then it started bubbling up then the centre was forming into powder as the outside was bubbling/boiling. It then started forming into powder or cream or it just descenecrates. As it changes the amount gets smaller, it also was burning as the heat was high.

Procedural Writing, How to be a friend.

How to be a friend, with four easy steps.

Step 1 : never be mean neither nasty or rude to those who are nice, kind and caring towards you.

Step 2 :  listen to them and get to know them better, see what you both/all have in common.

Step 3 : you should think about if they are a good friend to you and whether they are a good influence towards you and your behaviour.

Last and most importantly remember to love, care and look out for them in times when they are in need.

Reading Activity, Reflection.

Today, Thursday 29th May,  I had read a fiction story which was called "The Ice Cream shop window", the story was about a group of kids trying to find out who had vandalised their favourite ice cream shops window. The author had many the ending pretty interesting because the culprit had a glowing head.

Reflection, Reading Activity

Today I had learnt many things from the story "Wild Weather", like how Australia commonly has drought and bushfires. Wild Weather was very detailed with alot of information about how strong the weather could turn into, how hail forms and much more.

Funeral

Today, Monday 27th May 2014 my class had attended a funeral which was a very sad time for some. Family, friends and supporters had gather at St Pius X Parish Church to celebrate the life of Ailine Telefoni. She was a loving, caring and strong lady, towards her family and community, I may have not known her aswell as others but she seemed like a lovely lady in the end. In my opinion the mass was very peaceful and long.

Kindness

Our class was putting together an assembly. In each Learning Hub we had to create as a group a poem and a song or a play. The Learning Hub I was part of created an acrostic poem, an original poem and a song. Below is the acrostic poem and the song. The song was composed by my friends Deja and Lose and the acrostic poem was written by everyone in our Learning Hub.


  Verse 1 :
Kindness, you can show, everywhere at school and at home. This is a gift, from God above so

make sure you treat it with love.

Chorus :

KINDNESS x4. Is a virtue, we use it in Room 7, and we think you should too. x2

Verse 2 :
We can show this, in many ways, love, respect and caring too. Kindness we can show, in our
           
school, just work together and it’ll be cool.

Chorus :

KINDNESS x4. Is a virtue, we use it in Room 7, and we think you should too. x2



K - K is for KEEPING our Holy Faith values.
I - I is for the integrity, being honest.
N - N is for NEVER giving up on this virtue.
D - D is for DETERMINATION to keep the kindness flowing in this world.
N - N is for NICE, be nice to everyone.
E - E is for EVERYONE, we are all a team
S - S is for the STRENGTH we will always have
S - S is for SUCCESS, we can be successful together.

Procedural Writing



In writing we were focusing on Procedural Writing. Procedural Writing is a type of writing that gives instructions or directions on how to make or do something. Last week we had read a piece of procedural writing on how to make an "island mat". When we had completed weaving it we put our final touches on it which turned it into a "kindness mat".

Reflection

Today we read the Gospel of John, in the gospel Jesus said to Philip and Thomas “Don’t be worried” he also said to them “I will go and prepare a room for you in my Father’s house” which means I will go to my father’s house and I will make room for everyone. My understanding of this gospel was that he will accept all those who come forth to him.

My prayer to the Holy Spirit

Gracious Spirit,
You have guided me in times of trouble and I thank you for that, you have helped me when I was lost and led me away when I had strayed away. I ask that you continue your powerful and helpful work so that we may continue to be faithful to God. I ask that you lead those who need your help the most especially those who are making the wrong choices in life.

Amen.

Basketball

Dribbling the basketballs, energy flying everywhere, different techniques being shown, and sweat running down pupils faces. Today we had begun the sport, Basketball, for this term Basketball was our kiwi sport. At the start of the session we learnt how to do a “jump-stop”, next was how to “pivot” then “bongo drums” and dribble and much more. When we were learning how to bounce the ball in  different and new techniques I, myself found it harder to do compared to majority of the boys in my class. After we were taught some new techniques we moved on to a game. The teams were split up unevenly in my own opinion because the teams were split up in boys vs girls and to be honest I don’t think any of the girls were as good as the boys. Later on we had already begun the game and surprisingly the girls were winning! But our luck didn't last for long the boys had caught up and the score was 2 - 5, not long until we had reached the final match of the day. Finals, last point wins.. Momentarily squeals, smiles and cheering was spread across the girls team, we had won! Surprised but happy that we had beaten the boys.

My Holidays

Hours before noon, my cousin and I were unfortunately woken up for a holiday programme which was held at Selwyn College. Teens, pre-teens coming from different countries around the world such as France, Italy, Fiji and many more. Momentarily we had walked into a room full of unfamiliar faces. Later on in the day we had arrived at a beach that was not from Waiwera thermal pools.  


Sand up to me feet, sun beaming down and causing my skin to go a darker tone. Frisbee flying high, beats blasting from the stereo, and all around everyone taking pictures. At the start of the day it started out with just me and my mp 3 player but things changed when i made friends with a french girl whom name was Lela. Later on I made more friends with Indi and Sanda and others as the day past.

Before we gathered our things my new friends and I took as many photos at the beautiful beach and set off. Sun was just about down and my cousin and I had just arrived. After a fun day we were told to do a big load of dishes.


Hello 2014 !

Kicking off the year by turning up to school late, isn't the best way to start off the year but it’s a start! Students have come and gone and now that the year twenty fourteen has come it is my last year here at St Pius X. Can not wait to see what this year brings us.

Sooner or later..

Oh NO! All children are going to be going back to school in TWENTY DAYS. Books, homework, the lot! Soon enough we are going to start back at school with a more new and exciting things ahead of us. Although some of us aren't excited to get back to school the rest of us just can't wait. Twenty days are gonna go by and when we're back at school I bet we're gonna be moaning and complaining saying "I wish it was the holidays". But it's part of life we've got to put up with our dislikes and our likes.

It's a New Year.

The year of 2013 has finally ended and we have now entered the year of 2014. In my own opinion that is unbelievable for us to reach the year of 2014. Many years have passed but I'm just amazed that we've made it this far, to the year 2014. Before time passes by we have many things to look forward to this year that we just don't know about. Many of them we be surprises and those surprises will come as a shock to many of us but as we wait we become more curious about what lays ahead. As we live in the present some of us think about our past and just can't wait for what the future brings us.
