Friend Poem

This person is kind and generous
She has a great personality
I am lucky to be friends with her
She is gorgeous inside and out
She is fun to hang out with
Her smile brightens up my day
Can you guess who I am talking about?
I am talking about the one and only Shoal Makaata
Thank You Shoal For Being My Friends!!!

2012 was an awesome year. I have experienced many things such as Tamaki College Tech, meeting new friends, entering competitions and sports. My teacher Ms Squires was helpful in class. She is a great role model. This is how the year was.

My goal this year was to finish everything off properly. If I had to rate myself out of 10 I would choose 9/10. The reason for this would be because if I didn't finish my work I would end up getting it done. Also my goal was to do well in sports. Netball was one I focused on the most. Some of the sports I was in this year was softball, touch, netball, cross country and athletics. Anyway, hopefully in prize giving I get the chance to be a prefect and get an academic award.

Next year I am going to be a year 8 and being a year 8 we have more responsibilities. My goal for next year is to be a leader not a follower. Also to do well in my school work and sports. This year was a success and can't wait for next year. Thank you to the year 8. You have been great role models. Also to room 20 for being great friends. Merry Christmas everyone and best of luck in the future!!!

Marshmallow Creature


Owls were hooting and the full moon was glinting on the lake. Zac came out of his tent with a bag of delicious marshmallows. He sat next to the campfire and started toasting them. The dark forest surrounded him. But behind him was another story. A creature that had yellow eyes and was probably 10 feet, stealthily swam through the lake. When it stood up it looked like a frog and a dinosaur put together. He saw Zac toasting marshmallows so it slowly creeped up to him.

A shadow covered him. Zac was curious what was behind so he turned around and to his surprise he saw a sea creature. “AAARRRGGGHHH!!” Zac cried. He didn’t know what to do but stand there with his marshmallow defending him. Nothing happened which made Zac confused. They stood there when suddenly the sea monster ate the marshmallow. Zac was terrified. But the sea monster started doing tricks like a dog. He searched the bag for more marshmallows. He pulled it out and to his surprise more tricks came bursting out of the monster.

The marshmallows were gone except for one. He left the last one on his hand. Suddenly Zac felt slime. He looked up and saw the sea creature. It ate his hand. Luckily the sea monster was only hungry for marshmallows. Zac was really scared from this point. Without marshmallows he knew the sea monster was going to get angry. So he ran for his life. The monster was right behind him though. Then Zac tripped over a twik. The monster was looking at Zac in a scary way. To solve this problem Zac gave the sea creature a pillow. He tricked the sea creature into thinking that the pillow was a marshmallow. Zac knew the sea creature was going to eventually find out so he ran faster than a cheetah. The sea creature on the other hand was roasting his fake marshmallow when sadly it went on fire and turned into ashes.

Year 7 Team Building

The year 8’s weren’t at school which left the year 7’s alone. There was nothing to do but work. Everyone looked bored and wished something exciting was going to happen. When all of a sudden Mrs Nua came and announced that we were doing team building. Some of my friends were wondering why so they decided to ask, “Why are we doing team building Mrs Nua?”
“We are doing team building to find out who are next years prefects are.” Mrs Nua replied. From that moment everyone was in mood of leading a team.

The list of the teams were up on the screen. Our mission was to look for all of the members in our team. When I found my team we sat down and waited for something to happen. The team I was in had 9 people including myself. Shoal, Serena, Dante, Nuima, Marvin, Kendrix, Ahsin, lorenzo and myself. We finally got settled into our teams. Then Mrs Nua instructed us what to do next. Our task was to create a christmas tree. It had to have 4 branches on it and had to be decorated well. Our task was to create a christmas with only the materials in the pile. We had newspaper, coloured paper, sellotape, 2 pairs of scissors and 2 fruit burst. First we struggled because we weren’t cooperating, but we got use to working together and finished with a good looking christmas tree. We ended up using all of our materials and finished with a good product.

We all went to the street and sat in our groups. Our next task was to place our christmas tree on the table and sing a christmas carol. In our groups we thought of a song to sing. We all decided to sing Jingle Bells. After hearing all the songs it was our turn to sing. It was a FAIL. Lucky for us Ahsin made it really entertaining. If I had to choose my favourite performance as well as the christmas tree I would choose, Mary L’s team. After that it was morning tea.

When morning tea was finished we lined up in our teams. When everyone arrived we found out that we were doing relays outside with Mr Barks. The fun thing about this relay was the slingshot part. We had to run to the other side and get the equipment. With the equipment we had to make bullets for the slingshots. Our team found out that I was the best person to do the slingshot and most of the girls were better catching. In the end we won, mostly because we cheated.

Well that was basically it. We had much more activities but these were the highlights for me. I hope at prizegiving I get awarded one of the prefects. I hope we can do this again.
