SOS - Waitangi Day

What did you do on Waitangi Day?

On Waitangi day I spent the morning getting prepared with my family to go for a morning run.
I really enjoyed it because, not only did I get to spend time with my family, but I was able to
push my limit and go non stop around the Bayson! For me that was a very big achievement because,
usually I would stop after five minutes and walk the rest, but with the help of my supportive brothers
and cousin, I was able to push my limit and run all the way round!  

Do you think we should celebrate Waitangi Day?
                   ( continue to enjoy a day off )
Yes / no ‘ Give a reason
For me I am not sure. Reason being is because, I don’t have much of an understanding on what
Waitangi day is about. I do understand that on that very day, the treaty of Waitangi was signed.
I mean, I do enjoy the fact that we get the day off to spend time with our loved ones on that day,
but to be very honest with you, I really want to understand more about waitangi day and what secrets
that treaty holds, what power does this treaty hold? Is it really that important? If so, why did we have
to make a treaty just to create peace between the two nations? I hope one day I will be able to

  1. It was a place she wanted to visit. Because she understood the history of why waitangi day
  2. is important.
  3. She did not come simply for the beauty and the hospitality of the place, he and others came
  4. because there was much work. . . Much work to do.
  5. Because it was very important to them.

Test Practice 1, 2 & 3

WALT: Prepare ourselves for upcoming tests

It is very important to study for any test. Our exams have finished but now we come to the challenge of facing our teacher one on one for our personal maths test. These Presentations have helped me prepare myself for those test. They teach me to understand problems and whether I use addition, multiplication or division for solving it out.

Manaiakalani Film Festival

Pt England have been sharing movies for the Manaiakalani Film Festival at Sylvia Park Hoyts for the past 10 years now. This year has been a blast! Being able to create movies and not to mention celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Manaiakalani. I loved each movie that were presented by my school and others, they were very inspirational and had different opinions around it. But this movie particularity caught my eye. This movie is about our Sevens boys and there journey to becoming champions. I hope you enjoy!

What it means to be a good role model.

WALT: Take care of the little things in our writing I believe that a good role model is someone who has good qualities which are admired and he/she is someone who I would aspire to be like when I grow up. They are somebody who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way at all time. A role model is someone who has strength and determination to get up each and every morning, and even after a lifetime of pain he/she always gives the world another chance. In today’s lesson I will be sharing to you 3 ways to be a good role model.
One way to become a good role model is by doing things without being told. For example, finishing off your homework. When you complete your homework, it leaves you with relief knowing that you don’t have to worry until next week's assignments. It also means that when you come home you have more time to yourself, and not to mention it will leave both you and your teacher satisfied at the end of the day.
Another way to be a good role model is to, treat others the way you want to be treated. I think this is very important because, if you treat someone with no respect or positivety, they will probably treat you the same way and then, a lot of anger and bad feelings will be flowing between you and that person. But, if you treat he/she as your equal, in the future, you would most probably become best friends and you both will create many great and wonderful memories together.

For my final example all good role models always have humility and willingness to admit mistakes. Nobody is perfect. When you make a bad decision, let those who are watching and learning from you know that you made a mistake and how you plan to correct it.
By apologising, accepting accountability, and correcting course, you will be demonstrating an often overlooked part at being a role model.

True role models are those who posses qualities. They choose to be who they are. Their the ones who decide whether to choose the good or bad.
