Cross Country 2015

Cross Country Recount

“ Cheering, Motivation and tired people was the sign of this years SPX Cross Country”

On a spectacular afternoon our whole school was preparing for our whole school Cross Country. The weather had turned out to be beautiful for our whole school Cross Country.

Firstly slightly before Cross Country was about to start Misiotei, Frank, Seuati, Justin, Chris, Anthony, Manu and I went to set up the Chairs and all the other stuff for the parents and judges to sit on to spectate our cross country.

Finally the first race had started so Mr Slade and Manu announced that the Rooms 1 and 4 were going to be running first. Standing there nervous I was waiting for my race to be announced by Mr Slade and Manu. Finally Mr Slade and Manu announced that my race would be starting soon which was the Year 7&8. I was very nervous waiting for the sign to run, Finally Manu had shouted “Go!!!” so all of them had darted off were I just jogged at the back and paced myself.  

Later on in my first I was jogging alongside Hola, Lupe and Salote until I had passed them and was trying seize up to Justin. Suddenly I was just behind Justin and still paced myself into my Second lap. Just inside the second lap I passed Justin and was feeling the tiredness dragging me across the concrete.

Finally I had finished the Cross Country course (we did 2 and a half laps). I had come First in the Year 7 race, JT had came Second and Joshua had came Third. After all the weary moments in Cross Country for 2015 we all settled down to wait for the Points decision winner which was all combined from Organisation Points, the best chant and also the results from the race.
It was a awesome run!! it was more awesome because my Dad came to support me.

Revolution Group Visit!!!

“ We were in for a party when we heard that the Revolution Group was coming to our school”

After Lunch time on our feast day the Revolution Group came to visit us to tell us a few tips on not to bully each other. There were about 7- 10 members that came to our school to speak to us. Firstly they had told us that we were going to have fun and we did indeed. They had told us that some of the students that wanted to dance would get the chance to dance, so 2 students from our class Albert and Justin went up with a couple of younger students. It was fun watching them freestyle dance because they were dancing to the famous song “ Watch Me”. So after they busted a few of their dance moves it came to the actual reason on why they came to our school. One of the ladies had introduced herself and talked about her life as a kid. She had said that her life as a Kid was really depressing because being a Fijian herself she had said that most Fijian Girls hair will shape as a afro which her hair did. So she explained how everyday constantly she would be mocked and being called names just because of her hair looks. She had pointed that everyone may not look the same but actually we were created in the image of God and were choose to be the equal. She had gave us 3 steps when we see this type of situation. 2 of those steps was to say Sorry (Apologise) and to get 3 friends and not 3 friends to smash or beat up that person but to comfort that person that is being bullied or telling the bully to stop and think about their actions in what they are doing.

After that we were in for some more fun. They had sung us a few songs from artists we listen to such as Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and they had performed a dance to the famous song from Bruno Mars which was “Uptown Funk”. I was impressed in all their dance moves.

Sadly After that the fun visit came to an end and they gave away a few of their free stuff they had and then we all headed back to our classrooms.

What a great afternoon!

Respond to Sean

I think Sean really made a good decision to make shark finning an illegal thing to do. He was really passionate about sharks and loved learning about Sharks. Sean explained that Shark finning was cutting the shark’s fin off and pushing the rest of the Shark’s body back into the sea. Sean really didn’t like this thing happening and stood up for illegal Shark Finning. For a person Sean’s age it really shows how much passion he has for shark’s and to make shark finning illegal.

The Rainbow Fish

Thursday 6th August
Text: The Rainbow Fish
Opening Statement: I think the Rainbow Fish made a good decision to give her scales to the other fish.
  1. She made a good decision to give her scales to the others because she felt happier than she was we she had her scales.
  2. She made a good decision because she thought of the others before herself which made her happy
  3. She made a good decision because she actually was still the same as she was when she had her scales and just carried on her life underwater and was really happy about it.
The Message in the Story: I think the message in this story was to always think about others before yourself and also to share because your life will be happier as it was before.
