Camp Reflection

2014 year eight camp was awesome. Some of the activities were boring but most of the activities was fun.

On the first day of camp we went to waipu to go for a walk. The walk wasn't fun at all because I got all my clothes dirty. We had to walk thru rivers, muddy tracks and dangerous cliffs.
When we finished the bush walk we went down the road to have lunch at the beach. at the beach some people went for a swim and some just kicked back, some of the boys were doing front flips of the cliffs. After that we went on our way to marsden bay camp it was only 10 minutes away from waipu. When we arrived at, we all helped unload the bags from the bus. later on we all got a tour around the camp site.

When i woke up next day it was very stormy. there was terrifying lightning and thunder. All of the activities were canceled or delayed. Later on that day my group and I went down to the lake to kayak. When we were kayaking, there was this massive lightning so close to us and the thunder was tremendous.

When we finished kayaking we had to run in the long grass to get back to the campsite. Later on that day came night time. At night time we had a game it was like spotlight and hide and go seek. When they said start I ran start to the back of the building. Later on I started running back to home base. Once I got back there was only three people there.

Why is it important to have school rules

Rules are the most important things. Rules run the world and run schools and run coupons and much more. Rules are to keep you safe and out of trouble.

Most rules are in schools. The most important rules are always boundaries. Without boundaries in schools thing would be unsafe. With no rules kids would have free agency to whatever they want to do.

Bugatti Veyron is one of the fastest car in the world. This car is well known for its top speed. This car was designed by the Volkswagen crew. The top speed of the Bugatti Veyron is 431.072 km/h. The standard of the Bugatti won the top gear’s best car in 2005. This car is not allowed to be driven on the road for the tremendous speed it has. This car is used for drag races only. The class for this car is supercar. This car was made in 2005.

The Dodge Challenger third generation is one of my favorite cars. I like it for its looks and its speed. The first Dodge Challenger was produced in 1958-1959. The class ia a muscle car. This is a two door car.

The Nissan Skyline R36 has the fastest acceleration in the world. I think it the best looking car too.

Term 3 Highlights

It’s coming to the end of the term of term 3. Term 3 went very fast. My highlight of term 3 was net ball, soccer and life education. In netball we are learning how to shoot and how to pass the ball. Netball is very similar to basketball because you score a point the same way.

This term we also filmed our class movie for the film fest. The film fest is when all the Manaiakalani schools make a movie to show what we're up too. The film fest happens once a year. It happens in sylvia park hoyts  Xtreme screen.

In life education we lent what's bad for our bodys and what's good for our body. Did you know if you smoke one cigarette you lose seventeen minutes of your life.Taking care of your mind and body is very important for your health.

Pt England Cross Country

On the 11th of September Point England School had their School cross country. The race was held at Point England. We all had to run in bare feet. Everyone had to line up in their year levels. everyone came in there own house colors, I came in my house colour (Tainui) Blue. This event was for Point England School.

When the teachers said “its time for the year 8 boys”, I felt nervous. When we lined up on the starting line I felt even more nerves, so I walked to the side. Once I got on the side of the side Mr Burt told me to come to the middle then I gasped for breath.

“Go!”. Off we went running down to the first turn hoping to get a good start. But no I was nearly in last place. My goal was to do the whole run non stop. I started to catch up to 10th place so I stopped for a break. But when I stopped and walked, people started running past me, so I started running again.

Once I was nearly at the finish line, I looked back and there was no one behind me except for my friend Brent. When I saw the finish line I started running faster. Everyone was cheering me on when I was going past the finish line.

When I finished the race my legs felt like jelly. I felt exhausted when I was drinking water.
