Year 8 Camp 2012

Wow, wasn't that fun. On the 4th of december 2012 we year eights at Pt England school attended to Ngaruawahia camp. What a great experience we had, flying across the flying fox, swimming through the lake, diving off the pool edge. And also to never forget sliding down the mudslide.

It  was such a great way to end 2012. The laughs we had and the joy we had was really worth it. I think my favourite thing at camp would have to be the food, because it was healthy and most of we all enjoyed it.

Flying fox. all I can say was ‘It was fantastic”! it was pretty scary at first but I realized that its all to have fun and to enjoy the end of year camp.

Swimming through the lake, was pretty freaky because of the leches and ells. Just thinking about the ells and leches was really terrifying. But then we had got told that ells are scared of us and they are not a big fan for rough water.

Diving off the edge of the pool and making big waves, was exciting and really awesome.

sliding down the mudslide, well really to be honest I didn't go on it and so I don't know how it was but ,watching people slid down looked really fun and exciting but. but inside me I felt scared.

I wish I Could go again and hopefully get to go back and try the mudslide but till then don't forget to give me some feed back....

Manaiakalani Film Festival

This year we had the privilege to go and watch an to take part in the Manaiakalani film festival,
we also had to opportunity to sit in the X-Stream screen at Sylvia Park. Watching all the talented kids showing off their movies was awesome. Bravery to stand up in front off a huge audience Pt England school, Tamaki college and lots others..

They were all so entertaining, I love the way how they present it good, and presented it without a fuss. Laughing and cheering, for different schools. When it first started I was excited, and amazed of what we were about to see. lights went off and the introduction had begun, and we were all ready to see the amazing rooms and schools movies. 

 My favourite would have to be room 18’s movie from Pt England and Tamaki College, called One Direction,  Because they made laugh and made it worthwhile to go and watch. I think most people had enjoyed themselves and had a blast of a time.  I hope next year I could go again and watch all the fantastic movies.

Thank you Vanila for reading my work.

Dangers Of Smoking

The dangers of smoking includes diseases of your heart, lungs and brain. Smoking increases the chances of getting these diseases.

Smoking may cause diseases such as; lung cancer, heart disease, emphysema. Your chances of getting these diseases is greater. Smoking is very bad for you and it's also not good for your health.

When you are smoking constantly it will flow through your body and form a disease called cancer. How do you think cancer is mad?? well When you get cancer it over takes your cells and make new ones that affect your body, this will then spread and also cause other diseases. You also can get Heart disease this is one of the serious disease that may cause death.

Each day 3,000 children smoke their first cigarette this is a very intense situation having the risk to inhale a smoke and knowing the possibility to your future, For example you could die earlier and get badly delseas.

Now I have shown you the dangers in smoking and the likelihood on how you could get diseases, So for thoses people who have started smoking well rethink and “stop” well that was my advice for today don't forget to leave me some feed back.

Sarah Walker

The London Olympics is finished and we have scored 13 medals all together. My favorite athlete would have to be Sarah Walker, the great BMX racer.

Sarah Walker was born in Whakatane, New Zealand, and lives in Kawerau, New Zealand. Walker started BMX in 1999 when she saw her brother, Matt, riding one day.

Seeing her racing and competing with other countries was very scary. Sitting on the chair cheering for  the great athlete,“GO, you can do it!”. She came second, a silver medal!  I saw her standing and looking so happy and ecstatic. Great job!

As well as competing in BMX events around the world, Walker has also been a sports ambassador for Beef + Lamb New Zealand since 2008.

So, hopefully, next time Sarah Walker can do even better and get a gold medal.

 I believe that hard work, will power will bring success in sports, how you will succeed this? is that you have the desire and strength, and also believing in yourself,  just like all the athletes who are competing in the london olympic are also Striving to Succeed.

I think that both natural ability and hard work are important to an athlete, Why? because then they know that if they achieve that hard work, well then they all know that they are definitely moving towards a gold medal. It may be hard work, but you always say to yourself never give up, keep trying.

 Most good athlete are born with speed, flexibility and coordination. You have may not noticed athletes who have been swimming since they were in kindergarten, other people who has been lifting weights since they were in primary. It really doesn't matter who you are just keep it up strive to succeed, Kia Kaha.
