A visit from the Warriors!!!

On Wednesday morning, we had a surprising visit from the Vodafone Warriors. We were all exciting to see them. We had to players on came along, there name are Ken Maumalo and David Bhana. First of all, we started the day with our school prayer. Afterwards, Ken and David introduce themselves. Next, we played some games. The first game we played were like “Who Am I.” When the game finished, me and the boys in Room 7 played some activities. I had lot of fun. After the activities, Ken and David gave us some prizes. Some had a ball and others got a Warrior's water - bottle. It was time to ask questions. Some asked about there career and about there likes and dislikes. It was sadly time to end the fun but before we ended it we got a chance to have a few photo’s with them.

A Visit To Taiwan

It was the end of the day at school, I and some of the students in my class went to go visit Taiwan, my friend, in the hospital.  We were all excited to see him. We got our bags and waited for Mrs Tui.  While we were waiting, we wandered through the hallway looking at the class photo’s.

Finally Mrs Tui’s meeting was over.  We squashed through Mrs Tui’s little car and off we went.  While we were waiting to get there, Mrs Tui turned up the volume and we all listened to music.

Finally we arrived to the hospital, we were feeling very happy to see him.  We went to the Auckland Hospital to buy balloons and flowers for Taiwan.  We brought all the stuff and went to Starship.

Once we arrived, we didn't know what ward he was in. We asked the nurse for his Ward and she responded that he was in Level 5, Ward 9.  Eventually we found the ward, he was so happy to see us. Christopher said a little prayer before we started to talk to him. We give him the flowers and balloons. We had a little talk to him about his legs.

Sadly we had to say goodbye. I was very sad to say goodbye to a good friend.    

My Holiday Recount

It was the last two days of the holidays and I spent the last week at my cousin house. It was a rainy and muddy saturday. We were going to see my cousin’s game. We all got up and got organised. My cousin was full of excitement because he was looking forward for this game all week.

We sprinted to the car with a towel over our heads. The rain was pouring down very quickly. My uncle raced to the game because we were late. The traffic was very busy. While we were waiting, we were listening to songs.
Finally we arrived to the game, but it already started. My auntie took him to his team, while I stayed at the car with my uncle. “ Who is Christian challenging?” I asked. “ Papatoetoe” he responded. We rush to the other side of the car park and watch the game from there.

We didn’t go outside because it was raining. The rain pour very fast and heavy. I couldn’t see the game probably through the window. From time to time the rain got heavier and the grounds got more muddy. My uncle and I was really proud of  Christian because he was running hard and was tackling strong. Finally the game had finish.

We were all proud of him especially his Dad. After the game, we went and had a feed.

The End

Lectio Divina

Today in R.E I have learnt Lectio Divina. Lectio Divina is a type of traditional prayer that has prayerful reading. Here is my Lectio Divina prayer.

Dear God,

I would like to thank you forgiving me for all the bad things I have done. I ask that you may help me to forgive those around me. AMEN

Lectio Divina is a prayer that helps me a lot. It has taught me a different way to pray.
