Camp!!

  
 Getting to know others

For the last three days at sted fast camp i had a really fun and exciting time. Experiencing the kitekite fall and getting along with others that i had never got along with and having this great bond with my group and showing confidence in them.
Experiencing the kitekite fall and seeing all the excitement on their faces just made the day even better and the long walk back all soucked and also chatting to others on the way back to the camp side. Getting to know the year 7’s  better was really overwhelming.
On a Thursday morning the activity that we did first was bush skills
it was when everyone gets to make a tent and test out by using water to see if inside the tent will get wet.
During that experience we all got into groups and made our tents.I think our group was pretty lucky because we got to go in the forests but the other groups just used the trees on the field.

But my highlight for  me going to camp is getting to know
the year 7 and 8 students and listening to all their highlights of their day and finally for three days know yelling and shouting from Mrs Tui but i have to say i really miss toughs times.

INTEGRATED STUDIES
According to Ilaisaane, Learning about the schools in the 1800s is very in« terestĂ­ng. It is very different from our classroom today. The students are only at school for three hours while we are at school for 6 hours. The punishment or consequences for rnĂ­sbehave is very different. They are Often hit by a Wooden spoon or ruler. There was not White board or interactive board then. Children were writing with nip pens. The teachers told the children what to learn and the children learn by rope learning. It was amazing to be at the Howick Historical Village and went back in time.

...My Mother...

My mother is a loving, caring, warm hearted Mother. She also encourages others to go forward in their life and career .
In all my netball games my mother has always been there to cheer
me on the sidelines.
When I am playing what always gets me going is that she is there and that she
will always be there for me.
There would be sometimes when she is not there but when she is not there
she would say  “Even though I’m not there I would always have you in my heart”

Before getting into our skills
we all were very excited to meet two basketball player one of their names were coach Bruce and the other coach came late so we didn’t really had time to get his name.
After they finished introducing themselves we got straight into the skills that we learnt the first skill that i learnt was to dribble below your waist the second skill that i learnt was when you are shooting the ball all holding the ball the parm on your hands need to be like a gap between the ball and you hand . Just after learning both the skills we all had a little game that  had to do with the skills that we learnt.
Just after our games it was time to go back to class.

St Pius X is a very lucky school because they have two professional that can play basketball very well and now is here to teach younger students or people  how to play basketball .

This chapter summarises how John-Paul and Claire find a radio in their loft. When John turned on the radio a strange voice came out. John became suspicious and curious. He wanted to keep on listening, so he hurried to his room with the radio calling his sister Claire to come with him. They listened and listened. More voices came out. A name Stephen was mentioned. Claire was getting a bit scared.

Later on in the day John and Claire’s parents arrived back home. John and Claire tried to convince their parents to listen but they’ll just say no. Eventually Liz(mother) tells her husband to spare a few minutes. They all listen. A voice cries out “St-eee-phen, St-eeeeee-phen”! The family becomes scared and wonders who owns this radio and if this is just a game or not one.

Once we got there we all had our lunch.Once we were finished we were shown to our rooms everyone was so excited.
we all gathered into the meeting room. Once everyone settled into the gathering room we played a game. The game was just all about knowing each others name.

When we finished we all had lunch and played a few games
going to retreat was like another step away from my family .Being there was really exciting and enjoyable.

On Friday morning everyone gathered into the chapel for
morning prayer all the early birds were all allowed to light the candles until everyone comes to the chapel. In the afternoon we all gathered in to the gathering room and once everyone was in the gathering room we all were given a bag full of the things that we need to build a boat. The activity that we were going to play was noah's ark but it was a bit different to the actually noah’s ark the differents about it was that we are only saving one animal from sinking.Playing noah’s ark was really fun everyone was so excited i could see all of the excitement in everyone’s face.

Being at St Francis Retreat centre was really fun and exciting . What an opportunity.
