2014 College AGGS

So its a new year and i'm preparing myself for college, going from the top of intermediate to the bottom of college is definitely gonna be a challenge but i'm sure i'll survive.

Nervous as I am to start at Auckland Girls there's actually a part within me that's excited. But I have to admit the sports AGGS has got to offer is unbelievably awesome!

I'm not even worried about who's gonna be my friend next year as long as I do my sports & school work i'll be alright. I've also made a promise to stay true to myself to keep my dream alive instead of falling off track and loosing focus.

Girls these days are so worried about what there face looks like if there's enough makeup on? and they try so hard to fit in, when you could just pin your hair up and go to school as the real you, because believe it or not make up is FAKE but as for your FACE its real. So what happens when that makeups fades?? I think that's the question people should be asking themselves finding friends isn't a job so why make it one??

Im only going to school for 3 reasons...
1 - To develop my skill through sport and to of course participate!
2 - To learn and actually do my work!
3 - Last but not least Have Fun!!

Thanks again to my parents for paying for me to attend this school, it really means a lot.
I wont let you down <3

My Highlights 2013

Learning with two teachers this year has definitely been a challenge, but it's good in a way because every teacher has different ways of thinking. Mr Barks & Mrs Nua are both very intelligent they both have different strengths like for instance Mrs Nua's strength is literacy and Mr Barks is stronger when teaching maths. Overall I've learned alot from both of them, they've motivated me all year to do my best and to accelerate and to aim higher.

But I guess, what im going to miss the most is my friends and my sports, the sports here at Pt England gives you alot of opportunities  to develop your skill in the any sport you wish to participate in and your friends are there supporting you not just that but they have your back through everything and anything.

Sports means everything to me, so I would like to thank all the teachers who have supported throughout the year with my sports. Your effort and time you took out to either Coach,Assist and even transporting us to our sports event was magnificent, without all of you doing the work in the background we wouldn't have gotten anything done or completed so once again, thank you.

My overall highlight has to be... spending the whole year with my friends, and enjoying each others company and even though we are all going our separate ways they will forever be my Year 8 Mains(:

Netbook Reflection 2013

For me personally having a netbook connected to the internet has made school work a lot easier, yes the internet may be loading slow one day or another but we can still access our Google drive and all our files even when offline.

I have developed a lot of netbook skills not only this year but over the years I've had my netbook. Like for example typing faster and using short cuts to find things when exploring on my netbook. My Laptop has helped me alot even when working with a partner on one project, because we can both communicate on one document no matter where you are.

Having a netbook has helped me to improve in my maths and to develop more learning skills. We are given sites to work on for example we use Maths Whizz, to explore all sorts of maths problems and Xtramath to help us with our basic facts eg. 2x3=6 We also have Next Steps which is what we use to improve in the problems we find difficult, it’s a independant site where we push ourselves to accelerate and to do better than we did before.

Having a netbook has made not only me, but other students as well feel so lucky and intelligent. Learning on digital devices at such a young age is awesome and to hear and see more people going digital in their learning is a huge success.

Camp Rotorua 2013

For me personally I had a lot of highlights etc, swimming in the blue lake, sharing a cabin with my close friends and staying up late gossiping. But overall my favourite hight light had to be the luge ride because you got to race against your mates, hitting at full speed.

To be honest the food was shocking but I guess it was better than nothing , the walking was alright it was pretty annoying seeing that the weather was pouring. Spending time with all my friends, creating memories that we we'll cherish forever. All the bus rides, long walks & gossiping at night are just some of the reasons why we are so tight.

Waking up early to go for runs was alright but then again we could have gotten sick running around in that weather. But us students were  totally grateful for the camp that was organised by Mrs Nua & Camp was cool you gotta admit it, it was way better than staying back at school (:

Friends (:

Our friends are made up out of 8. We have each others back like a wolf pack through thick and thin we are there till the end united as one win against. We are an active bunch, we collaborate when participating in sports so we can remain as number one. 

Sports means everything to each an everyone of us, its a dream were all chasing to be at the top as a champion and to never give up.My friends and I have our ups and downs just like any group of friends would, but we have a positive mind and we learn how to forgive and forget so we can all still remain as friends.

We will always be next to each other  until the very end ,  wiping all your  tears away as its our job as your friend , We will smile when you smile and feel all the pain you do and if  you cry a single tear we all promise we will cry too :’)P

Dedicated to the following…..

Rugby is 15 aside contact sport. The aim of the game is trying score on the opposition's territory ( TRYLINE) You have a back-line which obviously marks the back and makes sure that the opposition does not score, and you also have forwards who gain metre  they are like the workhorses in the team. But the back-line controls all the fancy plays & moves. Rugby is a highly paid sport for the All Blacks anyway. Black Ferns get paid heaps but not as much as the All Blacks.

Auckland vs Syria

Auckland ( BLUE )
Syria ( BLACK )

Waking up in the morning with nothing to eat, I laid in a tent waiting for a miracle to happen. Nothing but rain poured down on us.

After playing with my friends my tummy started grumbling. I ran inside but my mother had already prepared food for me and my mates. I thanked her with a hug then continued to play after the food had digested.

I stayed in the tent with no one to play with. Desperate for food my stomach was grumbling but I starved for two days straight waiting for someone to help us.  

Waking up for school, well rested I washed up and hurried downstairs for breakfast. Eagerly awaiting for my dad to come down, he took his time as the shine shone brightly through the glass window.

It had been a long day playing outside with my mates. We had lost track of time and it wasn't long until it was night so we called it a day. I strolled into the house, washed up, and got ready for bed. I laid there day dreaming. I looked at the stars as it took up most of the sky and slowly drifted off to sleep.

It had been a long day waiting for something magical to happen, as I laid there awake in the dark. I took a deep breath as I added another day onto my starvation dates. I wasn't sure if I was going to see another day so I prayed that night waiting to see what the result was going to be the next morning.
