Fun Day

"Let's Go Green, Let's Go!!!" my group and I yell. "Go Green, Whoo!!"
Today was the day of our church gathering sports day. It happens every single year. And this year I'm in 'team green'. 

The first game we did was volleyball. The score was close but not close enough. It was fun playing against team red. Some were cheating some were fair, but at the same time it was awesome. It came to the finals and it was my team and the blue team. It was a draw when it came to the second round.
"Let's GO GREEN!!" We all yell to our team members that were on the field.
It came to the last point and we finished it off with a spike. That spike saved our team a spot bonus point.

The second event we had was  NETBALL. And in this game we played against 'team red' again. We played against this team because their were only 3 teams in our tournament. It was 15-13 in the last quarter. Our cheerleaders Toia, Joe and Nise encouraged us through the whole tournament. I passed the ball to my cousin Malaete'a and she shot the ball into the hoop for the last score. We won to games in a row.

It came to the end of the day and their was just one last sport to go. It was my favourite sport, Basketball. We versed the red team. And in this game everybody was cheating except for our team. We followed the instructions and that's why we won straight away. Their is no explanation for this sport or event because we didn't play a full game. We just ended at half time. The referee was fed up with red teams attitude and how they played.

It was the end of the tournament and the team that won this sports day was......."TEAM.....GREEN!!" It was so amazing to have our team win the church tournament. The prize we won was  a bunch of chocolate. We all got one each.

Cooking Finalists-Narrative

Looking eye to eye with my partner I knew straight away that  we were ready to cook. The competition that we were attending was a cooking competition.
“The challenge for today is to make a super delicious and healthy sandwiches for the judges,” said the host of the show. “You have 5 minutes to get ready. 3......2.......1.......START!”

My partner and I quickly ran to where all the groceries were. We picked out lettuce, sweet tomatoes, chicken ham, mayonnaise, cheese and most importantly bread.
We ran back to our bench and started to make our sandwich.

My partner and I were almost finished when I looked over to the other bench they were done. Their were 3 beautiful decorated plates just sitting their. My partner, Vanessa, told me that we should decorate our sandwich and so we did.
“You have 10 seconds left,” the host said. “OMG are you kidding me, 10 seconds left, seriously. That’s how long it takes me to tie my shoes and if I can tie my shoes in 10 seconds then I can decorate this sandwich/plate in 5 seconds,” I say out loud. And off we went.

Time was going when suddenly I heard the bell ring. Time was up and we still weren't finished.
“How long does it take you to make a sandwich?” the host said to me. He then served our sandwiches to the judges. All 3 judges gave their comments to us and what they thought the sandwich was like. Until they came to Vanessa and I. They said that they were disappointed at first but when they tasted our sandwich they thought that they were over the moon and up in the stars.

The host fell to the ground and said that my team won the challenge and that we also won the competition. Vanessa and I were so happy because we beat all the competitors. We won for and we also won for our class. It was amazing. This cooking competition was a great experience.

How Will.I.Am Came to Pt England

May the 9th was not going to be an ordinary day for Pt England School. One was that a famous person was going to come to our school. Two was that we all had a special assembly on a Thursday. And P.E.S never have assemblies on a Thursday only if it was a special one. Anyway's today was going to different for once.

Everything was set-up in the hall. And when I mean by everything was set-up in the hall was that their were camera's around and also photographers. I was wondering what kind of 'famous' person was going to come to our special and surprising assembly.

Sitting on our chairs was so boring so Mr Burt (our principal) decided that we have a practise at singing our school song before our special guest was coming. This assembly to our principal meant everything and by everything I mean like getting our school song correct and to make sure us year 8's sing.

After singing the song then we watched film festival movies. The first one was the movie from 'Room 18'. It was called 'Room 18 Maths Test'. The stars of this movie was Brooke, Kingston, Raihan, Dillion and Starford. It was an awesome.

It went all silent when we heard Mr Burt say that our surprise was here. All the prefects were surrounding him especially the cameras. When our surprise walked through the door all you would hear is people screaming.

Our famous comer had grey fancy boots, golden squared glasses and a beanie on top of his head.
"Do you have any clue who this could 'famous person' is?"
Well it's the one and only..................... WILL.I.AM. Yes the famous rapper and singer WILL.I.AM.

He came to our school to present all Maniakalani trust school's one hundred thousand dollar. It was very generous of him to do this. This day was awesome.

What My Friends Say About 'ME'

Our last activity for the term was to write a little positive quote on to our classmates back's.  For this activity we had 1 piece of paper, 1 strap of sellotape and a pen/pencil.

I just found out that some of my classmates also think that I'm cool. My favourite quote was when my friend Vanessa wrote, "you were the coolest girl ever since I first came to this school. You also welcomed me into this class, THANK YOU." I really appreciate what most of my friends say about me. I think she said that maybe because I was always there for her when she needed me most.

I also found out that people think that I'm funny and brainy at the same time. Also some of my classmates appreciate what I do for them. For example when some of my friends get hurt I help them.

Some quotes I didn't understand but it was okay any-ways. I figured some out and some of them said that I was their best friends. Some of them even said that I was a great friend to them. I was shocked when some one said that I was very very pretty. I didn't think that any of the guys said that because no-one would ever agree that I am pretty.

Anyway some of these comments were very appreciative. Well to my thoughts I think that some of these comments were actually true. One of the comments said that I was 'COOL AS', with many s's.

This activity was the best activity so far this year. I loved this activity because some of my besties from the other classes came and wrote on my paper.  I LOVED IT.
