Dream

Wednesday October 19th 2016

I thought I lost my mind. I woke up to a lovely sunshine shining on my face. I was getting ready to start day playing games, but my games weren’t there. I looked everywhere in the house and found NOTHING! No one was at home so I couldn’t ask them where it was. I thought I was having a bad dream, so I tried to wake myself up but nothing happened. I didn’t know where it could have been.

I did not know what to do, there was a loud bang coming from the door. As I thought my day couldn’t get worse, something terrible happen, I open the door and it was my console, in bits and pieces I was very shocked. As I looked up, someone was there. I was suddenly awoken, with my console next to me. I realized, it was only just a dream.

Cyber-Bully Talk

08.08.2016
Cyber-Bully Talk

I learnt this morning that when you say something online it will never be taken offline because whatever website you posted it on, that company will forever have it in their archives.

Constable Gordon came to talk to Room 7 about Cyber Bullying. I was really grateful that he came because, now I understand I should never be mean online, because it makes an impact in a lot of people’s lives. I am not going to lie, I have cyber-bullied before and i'm not proud of it. In the future I will never support anything bad that happens online or that is targeting someone/something.

Troll

TROLLS

It was a cold windy night in the darkest jungle in the world. The wind was very strong, and loud. There were two small trolls. There was a pink troll, and a blue troll. The pink troll had a guitar and started playing, while she was playing the blue troll was trying to sleep.

The blue troll woke up and he was furious. He shouted at her to go to bed. He went back to bed mad. But she refused to listen to him. So instead of listening, she carried on playing on her guitar, and singing at the same time.

She sang so loud, she woke up the entire jungle. The jungle loved her voice so much, that they joined in with her. This time the blue troll was very furious, he shouted very loudly. “STOP!!” everyone stop. He took the guitar off her and threw it into the fire and shouted. “GO TO BED!!!”

Paul, can you re-read your writing

NO GIRLS ALLOWED


MY OPINION:
I really don't think anything, because if they did compete they would've did all the sports the men did, which is fighting, boxing etc. But then again I also think that women should have been allowed to contribute, or even watch because, women back them had a lot of power against men and could've done a lot better, and the also should've been allowed to watch, because it would've so boring for the women to just stay at home and clean.

Winter Journey Activity


Day 1. Winter Journey Activity

Activity 1: In this activity, the sport I would compete in is Boxing. I choose this activity because, all the other activity consists of running, or throwing, and I can't run well, and my throwing is really terrible. I feel I would be very comfortable in fighting, because I am really big, and I don't go down easily.

Book Character Day

Book Character Day                                07/07/2016

Today was Book Day. For Book Day we all had to dress up in our favourite book characters. But me, and a few other boys, came in our favourite video game characters. My video game character was a Creeper, from the game Minecraft. Minecraft is a game about creating your own world, and you can do anything, and everything.

Overall I thought everyone dressed up really nice. My favourite person who dressed up was Richie. He was my favourite because he dressed up as Wally, from the book, Find Wally.

Marae Recount

Screenshot 2016-06-17 at 2.32.42 PM.pngMarae Recount

On Tuesday 14th May 2016, it was my first ever time going to a Marae.

The marae I went to was the Ruapotaka Marae, which is just behind the Glen Innes Library. My favourite part of the trip, was near the end. This was my favourite part, because we sang a song, but all the words were in Maori. This was also my favourite part, because instead of having a dvd to sing to, we had a man play with the guitar.

This trip was really fun, and I can’t wait for the future, to see if I will ever visit another Marae.  

The Cathedral

The Cathedral Recount Writing

St Pius X Catholic School went on a trip to the St Patrick Cathedral in town. We went  by bus. I had to look after my soul friend from Room 1. He is a new entrant boy.  I was excited but uncertain about this trip as this was my first time going to a Cathedral.

Once we arrived, we  had to wait until we were allowed to go inside the church.  We entered through the entrance on the left side of the church. This is the Door of Mercy of our diocese.  We blessed ourselves with holy water from a massive font at the side.

After that, we were guided to our seats, and we waited for mass to start. It was such a beautiful mass. The church had a lot of chairs, it had more chairs than our church, it also had a much bigger altar than our one. There were a lot of nice things about this church.

After mass we went to eat lunch, and we waited for the bus to come. Overall I thought that was a really fun school trip, and I can’t wait to go to another cathedral in the future.

Retreat Writing

Retreat Writing


At retreat it was fun because there we did a lot of activities, and we got to communicate with each other more.


Its was June 23rd the year 8’s from Saint Pius X School we went to the Francis Retreat center. When we got there we were greeted by Brother Philip, and he brought us inside. After he was done talking, Mrs Tui took us upstairs to our room.


When we finished settling in we all had to go downstairs to eat morning tea. For morning tea we ate biscuits and drinked milo. Next we went back up to our rooms and waited until we were called to come back. While we went back upstairs, Joshua asked if he called sleep in the same room as me. I let him, because no one else would.

Overall I think this was a really fun trip to go to, I hope in the future I can visit another retreat center.

Powhiri

Powhiri                                        15/06/2016

A Powhiri is when you are granted access to enter the marae, a Powhiri is a special thing, because if you weren’t in a Powhiri before entering a marae, you will not be allowed to into the marae.

On Tuesday 14th of June, St Pius X went to the marae in Ruapotaka, which is behind the Glen Innes Library. When we got there we had to do a Powhiri. A Powhiri is always performed by women, when we got to the marae, there was an old lady who did a powhiri with Ana-Lei.

We all stood in a row, but all the boys were at the back, and the girls were in the front. We had to be very quiet, the only people who could talk, was Ana-Lei, and the old lady. This felt very cool, because I got to be part of something, that i've never been apart of before.

Tamaki Science Roadshow


Tamaki Science Roadshow                              31/05/2016

Room 7 & Room 5 went to the Science Roadshow at Tamaki College. We were provided transport from our parents. My sister Rita came and she dropped off Albert, Patrick, and I to the Roadshow at Tamaki.

My favourite thing at the Roadshow was this Sugar Test. This was my favourite because it showed how many sugar is in sugared drinks. The drink I tested how much sugar was in, was a energy drink. I found out their was 29.3 teaspoons of sugar in a energy drink.

I think this was a really good trip to Tamaki College because we got go to a Science Roadshow for the 1st time.

Spark Headquarters


Spark Headquarters                              23/05/2016

Yesterday, Sunday 22 May, some of the Room 7 and Room 5 students went to the Spark Headquarters.  We went by bus.  It felt funny going on a school trip on a Sunday but was excited to go.  

We participated in different activities.  My favourite activity was 3D printer.
This was my favourite activity because we got to design what we wanted to create with the 3D printer. Sadly, my creations were not going to be printed because it will just take to long. I created a car using a program called Tinkcad.  I was very creative with my online construction.  I was disappointed that I did not have the opportunity to print, however, I now know how to access this program.  I realised how some toys are made, like the little toys at McDonald.  I might look for job like that in the future.
Paul.

My Best R.E Work

Wednesday 09th March 2016

Fr Francis Vernon Douglas

Fr Douglas was born on 22nd May 1910 in Wellington. He attended all his school sports, the sports he played were rugby, cricket, handball, and boxing. After he finished school he worked at a post office, he worked there for a while and then he felt the need to become a priest. In 1938 he sailed to the Philippines and arrived in his new parish of Pililla in July. He preached good news about God in the Philippines.

In 1941 the Japanese invaded the Philippines, Fr Douglas he could’ve ran away, but he stayed with his people knowing what was going to come. The Japanese integrated him because they thought if he was a priest he would be a spy. They thought he knew where the Philippine Guerillas where, Fr Douglas did know but he didn’t tell them.

He was water tortured and had a big piece of wood on his stomach and the soldiers would jump up and down on his stomach. Fr Douglas was last seen being dragged out a church and into a military truck. They believed he died because when the truck came back his body wasn’t in it. It is believed he was put to death in 10 July 1943.

Best Writing

Narrative Writing
09.02.2016

In the holidays me and my family went to Kohimarama beach so we could swim.

It was a hot day, we had nothing to do, my dad asked me and my family if we wanted to go beach, we said yes. So we packed our bags and went to the beach. When we got to the beach it was packed.

We found a spot where we could put down our things, after when we got changed into our swimming togs, me and my nephew had race into the water. When we got to the water we saw our family already in their, the water was very cold, we struggled to get in the water, but we finally got in there.

While we were playing in the water my brother came in and he started putting our heads under the water, it was very fun because we had a competition to see who can put most of the heads under what, my big brother won because he would always put 2 heads down all the time.

Overall I thought that was a fantastic day, and I hope we do something like that again.

Soul Friends

Thursday 17th March 2016
My Soul Friend
Soul friend is when a small person, and a elder person at school, are chosen to look after each other for the entire year. We have a soul friend because our parents aren’t always with us so if the younger soul friend needs our help the elder soul friend will help.

We celebrate soul friends day on St Patrick's Day, we go to mass, we have a shared lunch, and we make a promise saying we will look after them for the rest of the year.
My soul friend is Lisiate, he is a 5 year old tongan boy who is in room 1, he has short hair, and his favourite color is green. He is a shy boy but he has a lot of friend, I hope this year me and Lisiate will do fun things together.

KIWI SPORT

Friday 26th February 2016


TENNIS KIWISPORT


On Tuesday the 23rd of February 2016 we started our first kiwisport in 2016.


Our first kiwi sport was tennis. We put our P.E shirts on and went to the courts, when we went to the courts we saw the tennis nets already set up, with the tennis racquets in a bag. We also saw our coach, he told us what we were gonna do today.


We grabbed a racket and a ball, and we practised hitting the ball bouncing it up & down on the racquet, we did that for about 10 minutes, and then we had to get a partner, my partner was Richie, Richie went to one side of the tennis net, and I went to the other side.


We started by hitting the tennis ball at each other with the racquets, we finished doing that then half of the class had to go to the back of the court, and the others had to stay at the nets. During that time I had to go to my dentist appointment so I didn’t do anything else.

Overall I think tennis is a very energetic sport and you have to be fit to be able to play it.

Holiday Recount

Holiday Recount 2016
03/02/2016


In the holiday it was alright, because I went to the movies but I stayed home most of the time.


It was sorta fun and sorta boring in the holiday. The only fun part was when I went to the movies, and when I went to the airport to pick up my brother. It was fun when I went to the movies because I got to watch a movie called, ‘The Peanut Movie,’ it was a very funny movie because the characters looked funny, there was this funny character named Pig pen, only reason why he was funny, was because their was a stink cloud following him all over the place.


It was also fun in the holiday because I went to the airport to pick my brother up, and on the way we had dunkin donuts. It was also boring in the holiday because most of the time I stayed home and sleep.

But over all think that was I had a very fun holiday.
