Good Friends

Good friends like to laugh, talk and tell secret to each other. They are someone that we can share our stupidest and embarrassing moments. The one thing I like about my friends we have different personalities. We like to hang out every weekends and go places like swimming pools and each others house.

My friends are empathetic they help in different kind of ways. Always understand how I feel and cares for me when I'm sad. They act like their selves when they are around me. When I am upset I can always go to them because they always listen to what I have to say. Friends are mates that we hang around with on our spare times and go to birthdays or to each others houses. If we had no friends their well be no one to talk to and share secrets or hang out. Best friends are tight and shares stuff with each other.

Good friends can also be your cousin, Auntie or your mum and dad. Some of the people I know their best friend is their pet dog or cat so a good friend can be anyone. Its always fun to have a good friend around you so that you can have fun. A good friend trusts you and want spread rumors and will always be there for you. Its always have a person that you can trust and be your best friend.

We quickly got seated and everybody was silent. We started with a prayer and finished with Amen. Mr Burt start off with a Korero about future Aspiration , about what are we going to do in the future?and  whats our dreams!. So Andrew Patterson is here with some people who succeed.

Andrew Patterson  finished his korero and watched a short film about a year 9 in Manurewa collage. Ivana speaks and encourage's people to chase their dreams. He talked about how his school is doing good and his grades are getting higher because he has listened more. He never thought they he will be paid for speaking to people on stage.

There were three presenters Amelia , Anthony and Paula 
But one of my favorites was Paula. He talk to many year 7 &8 about future Aspiration and he told us a story about when he was in school. Back in school the pools will always be open on a very hot day.

He went swimming and he will always have races with his friends in the pool. They had to swim to the deep side and back to the shallow part. So they kicked off and they started splashing water and swimming fast as they can to win. As they got tired they started slowing down and Paula started walking in the water and won the race.

They picked him to be in the swimming team for there school and they went to the a pool near there school and got changed and ready it looked really fancy. There were different schools there and Paula was very sure that he's going to win because he had a special weapon.

He was all ready in his togs and waiting until the empire say's go" .He snapped the wood and they dived in. There were swimming as fast as they could back and back. As they got to the middle of the pool the swimmers started slowing down.

As they were slowing down he tried to walk but as he put both legs onto the ground he couldn't reach the bottom of the water and it was to deep and started drowning and lifeguards swam and carried him out. It was one of his embarrassing moments. And her friends were laughing at him.
As he was telling us the story he was doing funny actions to it. It was really cool listening to there stories about there future.

Rip current

In New Zealand we have the highest drowning rates so its important to keep safe in a Rip. If you are in a Rip the first thing is to don’t Panic. So never swim alone because if something dangerous happens and you also panic you can get dragged under that Rip.

Life guards put out the 2 flags for a reason so stay between the flags because its safe.If you are caught in the rip don’t panic because most people drown and even die from panicking in the rip its important to don’t panic.

Do you know how a rips for?
Rip is like a stream full of water that pushes water out and away from the shore. So if the rip pushes you away  and you're trying to get back to shore put your one hand up and wait for the lifeguards to come and get you. Rips are hard to get out of so you should know rules when you are in a rip.
How do you identify a rip?
When you are getting drifted away and you’re trying to swim back to shore thats when you know you’re in a rip.  When water are hitting the shore and on the same time water drifting away thats when you know its a rip. Rips are unsafe to be around so its important you swim near the shore and away from rips.

What to do when you are caught in a rip?
When you are caught in a rip don’t try to swim back just wait until someone grabs you. Don’t panic because you might drown and die from rips. If you are caught just wait until the waves finally stop and then you can swim back. 

If you go to a family picnic on the beach always swim when their adults close to you so they can pull you in. Its important that you swim where lots of people are. So you can tell your parents or someone who's taking you to the beach about whats a rip current.

Walking around the corridors of school I see a lot of unkind people pushing and saying mean things. Now its time people should show empathy.  It would be a good time for people to put themselves in other peoples shoes and know how it feels in life for them to come to school everyday with an unhappy face. Its important to be respectful to other people around and show kindness because empathy means understanding how someone else is feelings.

This is different ways that you can show empathy. Understanding someone having a hard time in school or someone unhappy about something bad happened. Sharing with someone there emotional secrets and feelings. Showing kindness in school and caring about how other people treat people around them. Helping a teacher out will really kind and showing how much you care about others.

Its important to show empathy. A world with out empathy is like walking into school everyday facing people that are  getting pushed around and teased.  If we had no one showing empathy in our school we will have bullies being not respectful to others. You respect others  and help them when there feeling down and be empathetic.  

In the meanwhile we all can show Empathy in and out of the school grounds. Treat other people as you treat yourself and friends. If a person is sitting by their selves go talk to them or ask them if they want  to play. So everyone should be empathetic and respectful  and kind and always put and it will be amazing if I see smile’s on other people faces at the end of the days I will have a big smile on mine.

people hardly heard of the word empathy but now you no what it means so its time we all show empathy. Empathy is very important word and its always good if you see people caring and being kind to each other.  So help people when there getting push around and feeling sad the end.

DLO Maths

Immersion Assembly

Light from The Breeze was shining into the hall making shadows on the floor. As we sat down Mr Burt announced, ”Guess what guys. Our topic is Art attack”.
We watched amazing performances with teachers jumping around and even watched their little short films about the beach and the primary colours.
It went on and on until it was time for team 5. I couldn’t wait to see their performance.

Team 5 teachers were dressed up in different costumes looking like famous painters. Walking onto the stage they were holding paint in their hands. They had a big paper pinned onto a wall. While we watched them gracefully painting their way around the big piece of paper, I was thinking to myself, “I’m confused.  This artwork looks rubbish.” . Lights beaming down on them, looking like a sun above their head, were making the teachers sweat.

As the teachers painted we watched an amazing artist painting one of his designs on the video. It was fantastic. I was still confused about Team 5's piece of artwork as it looked like blobs of white and black paint. When they were flicking blobs of paint onto the pinned paper I was trying to imagine what the artwork was going to look like.

Turning their piece of artwork around I was thinking to myself, "What are they doing?"
As they picture was turned we could see clearly it was Ms Jarman, Mr Jacobson, and Mr Burt painted. ”Wow” that's awesome," I thought to myself. Every one applauded for their amazing artwork.

At the end the artwork was not confusing after all. But we all had fun watching the teachers cool performance. It was a sunny and fun day watching team1 teachers to team 5 dancing painting and having fun.
