Be Sun Safe!!

In Summer you need to be Sun Safe because because, obviously, you will get sun burned. Here are 5 tips to prevent getting Sun burned.

1. Always be sure that when outside, wear a hat.
2. If you're at the beach, whether sun or cloud, it doesn't matter but you will always get burned so put on some sun-screen.
3. Wear some sun-glasses so you don't get blinded by the sun.
4. If you don't have sun-screen, wear a shirt with long sleeves to be protected by the sun.
5. Always be hydrated so you don't faint when it gets too hot.

Retiring Mrs Vickers!!

We have some breaking news!! Mrs Vickers is Retiring!! Well, next year. On Thursday, we had a powhiri to welcome our new principal, Mrs Hamilton.

Katrina did the welcoming, while the senior block did a haka in the background. I did most of the talking. After I introduced myself to Mrs Hamilton, Leanah started singing a waiata and everyone joined in.

Then Mrs Hamilton stood up and talked about how wonderfully organised we were at our powhiri. After the powhiri, Mrs Riley thanked us for how well we behaved and guess what!! She nearly cried!! Luckily Mr Reid was there to hug her. Awwww!! I guess he does care!!

Thank You Coach Pete!!

On Tuesday, it was the last day for tennis with Coach Pete. For the last day, we had a bit of fun. We were split up into two groups. When we were split into two groups, we had to choose a partner to play. It soon became "Duo v Duo". I was partnered with Leaaepeni and we thrashed everyone until Leaaepeni did one slite mistake and we were defeated, but it was fun.

After that, I did a thank you speech to Coach Pete and we shook hands like Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un.

All I Do Is STUDY STUDY STUDY No Matter What!!

In the weekends, it was kind of boring, (well a lot boring), because all I did was study for my test on Wednesday, the 28th. The exam was to find out what class I would go to for college. My dad said that it will be worth it.

Next year I will be going to Edgewater College, where my sister is currently going to now. I can't wait!! (😒😒😒).

Donate To Charity!!

On Wednesday, my group went to Mr Pineda's class at Tamaki College for tech. We continued on our charity box that we made last week.

The idea of my charity box was to make a cylinder made out of cardboard, then cut two circles to tape at the end of the cylinder to make it look like a piggy-bank. Then I would put a cardboard and fold it and finally glue it to the cylinder to make it look a roof on a pole.

I made this because I don't want homeless people to live on the streets. I also will paint on the roof, "Save The Homeless."

Who would you do a charity box for?
