This term my class studied about a New Zealand artist called Robin Kahukiwa.  
She draws super heroes that revolved  around her culture and the people who inspired her.

We had to do the same thing and that was to draw a Super Hero. We had to chose three people who inspired us. I chose my Grandpa, my Mum and Benji Marshall.

The high heels represents my Mum because she likes to wear high heels in public. 
The abs repersent my Grandpa because I think he is strong in the inside. 
The words represent Benji Marshall because he said these words to the mentally disabled kids and the words were, " If you try your best you could do it."

Back to the past

Last Friday the Senior School went to Howick Historical Village. When we arrived we ate lunch straight away. After we went to a building and inside were stuff and antiques that I have never seen before. First thing we did inside was a game but not just any other game it was an olden day game. After we had another olden day game. That was the best experience playing a game that I have never played before.

Then we went to school. But it wasn’t our school it was the 1800s school. The teacher said ladies first so the girls went inside before the boys. When we got inside the teacher told us “there is only one rule and that is if you speak without permission there will be a consequence. That consequence is a smack and there is plenty of weapons and I am not afraid to use it. First we had to write something with a olden day fashion pen and ink. Then after the teacher picked me to be the score maker for a spelling test. It was the boys verses the girls. When it finished the girls ended up beating the boys 9 points to 4.

Then we had lunch. I was starving. Finally we had to do our last assignment. It was a scavenger hunt. Our group did pretty good. Sadly we had to go back to school. That was an experience that I never want to forget.


My goal for maths is to reach a standard that I am expected at.

My goal for reading is to have good grammar and not muck up words.

My goal for writing is to use more punctuation.

My personal goal is to get an awesome mark in sport.
