Narrative Story

Narrative writing -
A long long time ago on an island which was unknown, there were two little creatures who lived in a Jungle. One was a girl named Grace and she loved to dance, sing and especially play her ukulele. She also had a brother named Smith he was mean, grumpy and never cared about anything.

One day after a full day of fun we went back to our campsite and Smith went to sleep and I tried to get some sleep, but the night sky was so beautiful I just had to sing about it, I started singing, “La la la the sky so bright!”  and then my stinky older brother, Smith interrupted, “Really? More singing?” Smith uttered in an angry voice. “Why yes! It helps you be relaxed you should try it some time!” Grace said. “I don’t like relaxing, I don’t like singing, and I sure do not like dancing!”

Grace was so hurt by what her brother said, she got even angrier so she thought that if she impressed him, he would feel guilty and apologize. She grabbed her ukulele, and strummed away. He was furious! So he chucked his blanket aside and gave her the angry look.

Grace called her imaginary friends to come out and sing and dance along with her. One of her imaginary spider came down its web, “Hey fella” the spider said. “EWWW YUCK!” screamed Smith.

As soon as her singing and dancing was done, Smith said to her, “May I?” Grace thought that he was actually impressed until when he got it, he straight away chucked it into the bonfire and went straight to sleep.

School Book week

Today was Book week, Book week is when you have to dress up as your favourite character from a book ,game manual or anything that has to do with reading. I was excited because I was coming  as a nerd to the book week, well I didn’t really look like a nerd. I just looked like a original person from reality.

We started our book week with the duffy assembly with Josephine Bartley. Each class came up and Alecia and Rosrine asked several students about their character.Towards the end of the assembly we received our duffy books,given out by our special guest and Mr Coakley. Right at the end of the assembly we were asked to stand up and walk around the hall to show everyone our costume.

What I liked about today was looking at other people's costumes.One thing I enjoyed about this day was getting to know about more peoples characters.


My experience at St.Francis Retreat was Awesome, we had  time to look deeper into our learning to show leadership to the students of St.Pius X.

Once we got given our cards we went into 4 groups,my group was,Kalo,Rosrine,Paul and me.We had to find clues and do a Skit about it.It was rough for me because we had to hold a brown piece of paper that was weak.It started raining so my group decided to cover it with our jacket so that it wont rip.Finally we found our first clue underneath the fish pond.

Then we moved on to the next clue which was obviously on the big green paper bin.Our last clue was all the way down to the mail box was on the ground,we had to run for our lives because we were getting wet andour clues were getting wet.

Then we all rushed inside and took off our shoes where it was warm and dried.We sat on the chairs waiting until everyone had got back from their treasure hunt.

Te Oro Experience

Being in Te Oro for the first time was a good experience. When we got there I saw different art and also some different people. I was Amazed when I got there because I  could go anywhere in Te Oro and try out different things such as dance,paint & watch. The first  station I went to was  watching sommerville dance to a samoan song that I couldn’t  understand and didn’t know what the song was about.

I got mixed up with the hawaiian songs and the tongan songs because it almost had similar words.It was pretty confusing.I felt like getting hypnotized from a fan, and actually fan, well they took off the front and made it a spinning thingy for us to be able to paint, it was kind of weird but oh well.

It was almost time to go, I didn’t really knew we were actually going to go but I just remembered that we were going to go back to school in about a minute.Kalo and I went up stairs to the computer room and was playing music.Then we were called from J.T to come back because we're going back to school.

Whole School trip to St Patrick Cathedral

Last week on the 1st of July was a special day.

St Pius X catholic school  went on a trip to St Patrick’s Cathedral in the city, we traveled by bus to get their (as usual). Firstly we entered the door of Mercy, we were going to St Patrick’s cathedral on a Pilgrimage Journey. I was excited because we were going to Bishop Patrick, the Diocese of Auckland’s cathedral I was excited.  From the minute I walked in I just remembered it was the year of Mercy.

Once we arrived I was excited to see what it looked like inside and also what Bishop Patrick’s chair looked like? When I went inside with my class I was amazed of what I saw. We got seated in the front row. After 5 - 10 mins we finally began our Mass. Fr Larry welcomed us and began.

The first reader was a guy. Then we had to do the eucharist and we sang “Bread Broken”. When we finished the song we went up to get the Bread and Wine. At the end we took a school photo by Mrs tui and Viliamis Aunty.
Then we went and had Lunch. After Lunch we went back to the bus and went back to school.
