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

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

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.
