Yr9 CAMP!

On Monday & Tuesday we spent the last 2 days camping at Hunua Falls. First off we bussed from our school (Tamaki College) all the way to Kokako Lodge in Papakura. When we arrived we did a 10k Hike in the mountains to our camp site (Hunua Falls). During the Hike heaps of people slipped, had fun & there were a lot of laughs because we haven't been together before as a class. The Hike had finished & we arrive to out Camp site, we picked our cabins & dropped all our gears onto the ground.

Later on we were put into groups & did activities that involved Teamwork. The next day we carried on with our activities & unfortunately we had to go home because it was a Overnight camp which was gay. But my favourite thing about the camp was that we were together as a class & at night time us boys Benjamin, Taki, Araiti, Taiaha & Te-Paki were all talking & having a few laughs past our bed times.

Ms Robertson's Migration Story From Samoa

At today's Social Study period we had Presentation by Ms Robertson's mum. She came in & told us about her Migration from Samoa to New Zealand. She left Samoa & migrated to New Zealand in 1962 at the aged of 18, so now she'll be 73. The reason why she left Samoa because her parents told her to go to New Zealand was to build houses, work, make money so that she the money back to her parents in Samoa so that they can make houses here in New Zealand. The other reason why was because her parents wanted their Grandchildren to go overseas to Samoa show that they have the same ways that they learn't in New Zealand. Ms Robertson achieved all that & had children, she encouraged them & taught them heaps. Image result for samoaImage result for NZ

Sitting The Mid Term Exams

My prediction for the Mid Term Exams was that it was going to be hard because we had to sit it for 2 hours, which is a big step from Intermediate.
How Did I Feel During Exams? When sitting Exams it was tiring because we had to do the exams for three days straight (Wednesday to Friday).

1 Exam I Liked ~ My exam that I liked was Science because we had to do both things 1. Use our Chromebooks & fill out a form & 2. We used Pen & Paper.

1 Exam I Disliked ~ My exam that I disliked was Social Studies because Friday’s exam I felt sick because I started coughing and sweating after I finished it.

The Tokelauan Way Of Life

This term for Social Studies our theme is "Globalisation." Globalisation means the process by which businesses or other organisations develop international influence or start operating on an international scale. Our class has been learning about the small island in the South Pacific called Tokelau. Tokelau is unique because kids that go to school use boats to transport. Did you know you can't fly to Tokelau you have to fly to Samoa then take a boat to Tokelau which will take 3 days.

Today we watched a video about Tokelau called ‘Our Small World.  The Tokelauan way of life is different to ours because their life is different. 1. Students take a boat to school, "How cool is that" & 2. Everyone Tokelau know each other.
