Fun at Movie Festival By joel

Yesterday we went to our film festival at Sylvia Park Hoyts. I went in Khunfs car with Julia. When we got there, a lot of children from other schools were waiting outside the theater. I practised my speech while we were waiting. Next, we went into the big screen room and we watched lot of other films that different schools have made. Then our class film came on. I went up to a little stage with Mina and we introduced our class film. After that Mina and I ,sat back down and we watched our movie. That was so good. After all  the films were done, we went to the food court and had our morning tea there. We also had a frozen coke there. Then we had a little look around JB HI-FI and came back to school. I had a really awesome time at the film festival and my favorite film there was the “volcano“ one by Finn from EW3. It taught us some important facts about the volcanos around Auckland.

My Dream Trip To Japan by Julia

During my  October holiday, I went to Japan with my mum, dad and brother.  We first went to the Airport. I was wearing an Ariana Grande t-shirt and a pair of jeans.  My brother kept me busy by showing me some tricks.  We waited for our plane to come.  We had something to eat.  Then we went inside the aeroplane. I was watching  The Big Bang Theory and I was listening to  Charlie Puth.  In  Japan, we went to the wax museum. My mum took a  photo of me
and  Justin Biber and Michael  Jackson. I also saw a wax statue of Tom Cruise who was on a bike. We rode on a bullet train in Japan. It went very fast.  I had a great time.

Te Oro Art Exhibition by Mina

20170921_104055.jpg20170921_103351.jpgOn Thursday last week my class and I want to Te Oro in Glen Innes to check out everybody’s art work. I went there with my Mum and Dad because I live near to Te Oro. My Mum and Dad stayed with me for few minutes and checked out a class who was singing and playing with sticks. After watching the performance, my Mum and I went to check out our “Polluted sea” display which we worked on with EWC 3. I saw a lot of rubbish my class and Edgewater 3  had collected from home. Our class made  Blowfishes, eels and a turtle! I smiled when I saw the polluted room and even saw some bean bags from our classroom. After that, I said goodbye to my Mum because my Mum and Dad had to go back home.  I painted Volcano’s and helped create a Volcano art sculpture with some of my classmates. We then went to another room to make bags with Shelley and it was fun making bags with my classmates. I went to my favourite room which was the ICT room with Matthew, Thiha and Kaine and made music. I had so much fun.Even I saw one of Julia’s artworks, which was a very beautiful Mountain. I said goodbye to my class and went home with my Mum and Dad. 20170921_101452.jpg

Hi Mina

I am sorry to hear about your Dad. You were lucky to have such a good Dad. Now you can remember him with happiness. We miss your friendly smiles in class.

From Kaine Castle

Dearest Mina, Mavis and family,
We are still shocked and speechless about the sad passing of a loving husband and father.
We all knew him well, he always had something good to say and would help anybody if he would.  The wonderful way he kept the family together when mum was ill.  He was truly a good man and has left footprints in all our hearts.  
Mina, we miss you in class, your lovely smile and your comforting hugs.  Wish we would be with you now and hand out those lovely hugs as you always do when we are sad or worried.
Just remember, loved ones die, but don’t leave us.  They are always there, part of our lives and one day we will all be together again.
Be strong and courageous in this sad time.  Our prayers are with you always.
Lots of love,
Valerie, Shyama, Gayle and Khunaf.

Turning Bush into Butter By Mina

This photo is an Informal photograph taken at Winiata near Taihape. It was also taken when new technology made it easier to photograph what went on in the world outside the studio. I can see one cat, two dogs and two cows in this photograph. Mum and dad are milking the house cows. The family nationality is Maori. This photo was taken by  Edward George Child. You had to burn down native bush if you wanted to get rid of it for farming. It was hard work that went into making and running a farm but it also had a negative impact on our forests. Gone forever. The photographer show part of a forest which is still alive and a lot of burnt trees in the background. The good and the bad.

Staying Home By Aidan

I had a sore tummy last week and I stayed at home.  I remembered to brush my teeth at home and Val is happy about that. Everybody was glad to see me this morning and I am happy to be back.  I listened to music this morning at school and liked that. Later on, I worked hard by colouring in by number.
