Prize Giving 2013


Sitting down waiting for the Senior Prize Giving to start I had thrills for what things people will get in. Thrilled to her that my brother Jordan come first in academic. seeing people smiling on stage made me fell great. Know that I will not be able to get a prize for 2013 at Prize Giving.

I have tried this year to become a prefect our a house caption for next year. That is my goal. How could you become a prefect for next year if you wanted to? Prefect's have to be responsible and to now what they are doing. I hope I get the job for 2014. Would you like to get the job?

Then the time was now to see if I could, but I didn't get it but I am a house captain. Yes I am a house captain for Tainui with Annilz. Next year I'm looking forward to cross country and athletics because I believe I can take Tainui to first.

Net-book Reflection

This year I have enjoyed the year with my Chromebook. I have liked it because we have Google Docs instead of pencil and paper. It helps me with my learning with movie making, writing and maths. The one thing that have learnt this year is knowing how it can change your life. It helps me access the sites that my Teacher (Mrs Lagitupu) let me view. I am still learning how to use it properly but I'm getting there. Typing is a hard thing to do but you can get really fast if you get use to it. 

I am solving out maths questions so that I may achieve my goal. For example 1/4 as a percentage would be 25%. The most special thing my teacher has taught me this year was to not be naughty in class and remember to finish it off properly. I have been learning a lot using my Chromebook and using sites like Math Whizz and Xtra-Math. They help me in maths and other sites help me in other subjects. 

The subjects that I like is maths because Math Whizz and Xtra Math they make my maths learning easier then what my learning was like with these sites.Thank you Mrs and Mr Burt for getting these Chromebooks for Pt England School.

Birthdays Happen

“Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday Dear Levi, Happy Birthday to you” The whole family singing for a celebration “ohh It’s my birthday today” I remembered with surprise. I’m twelve years old and almost a teenager. Isn’t that awesome???? I think it is. Twelve is a big number if you ask me. “Hurry up Levi and get dressed nicely because you are going out” Going out with my granddad and grandmother to Pukarua Plaza and went to different malls for things like clothes, toys, and my best bit is the food. I got myself a control jeep from the warfare (warehouse). Eating food like sweet and sour pork, noodles, egg  foo yong.On the way back to the car I felt that I had been spoiled like always.

Future Aspiration.

Future, Future, Future I wonder what I will be in the future? Am I going to be an All Black to score tries or maybe a firemen to help people? I know a Rock Star!!! Nahh. What do you think you want to be but before you know it you should dream it. Dream and dream big, when you may never know that it might come true.

All these questions where going through my mind while I was listening to the Future Aspiration speakers who came to Point England on Thursday. There were five speakers on that day and they all had good futures and they also dreamed big dreams and carried on with their future ahead.

Mosa was a very young man who followed his dream and he gave out coins to who ever got the question right. He told us that his life was not good and he two bedrooms but 12 people in the house. He had to work hard and still dreamed his dream and it came true. His message was you follow your dream but catch it.

Waka Ama Story


       Waka Ama


“Set them up!!!” I heard “Hoy!!!” again. I wonder what that sound is? Paddling, Steering. That is what Waka Ama is for. Do you know what Waka Ama is? I know the answer!!! The answer is Waka Ama is a summer sport where you paddle a canoe and it is good workout. Waka with a Ama is called Waka Ama. Other names for Ama is Outrigger, and Kiato and that is what keeps the Waka from tipping. In recent years, waka ama racing, introduced from Pasifika Nations into New Zealand during the 1980s and 1990s.


Feeling the wind so strong that it made me realise the challenge that seagulls face every day. It made me feel that I was apart of this bite of the sea. It was a challenge to get the Waka out to the sea. Do you know how it felt to carry the Waka to the sea? and how it feels like to be in one? It is very heavy to take to the sea at this weight, and it is hard to paddle but very cool to be in one. Do you know how much a Waka weighs? I don’t know because it has no information.


Wondering what place we might come so I look ahead and see that only one Waka is in front on us so we must be coming second and that is a good place for our first time doing Waka ama in a race. Do you know that at the start we were coming last and then we pulled our heads together and that is how we came second. My team was called “Ngati Tu Choice” Do you think that it is a great name?

I would just like to say a big thank you to Tamaki Outrigger, Aaron(Couch), Shannon(Manager), and to the Team for their effort, Team(Anthony, Frankie, Isara, Auri, Uili and Me Levi).

Where I'm From Poem


Where i’m from I see the waves bump up and down like hills
Dipping my feet in the sea I’m looking out for boats
I reach back in for shore and see birds fighting over scraps
All I hear is giant waves crashing into the sand
I smell smoky barbecue coming towards my face

Where i’m from i can see my mum making a lot of noise in the kitchen
I see my mum cooking us dinner in the kitchen
I see u my mum making us nachos for dinner
I see people enjoying themselves eating MC Ds
I see some boys on the playground eating some chip

Where I’m from I hear the crowd like they are cheering for WILL.I.AM has entred the school.
I hear my brothers playing on the trampling like they are Michael jordan doing a slam dunk.
I hear the birds like they are singing a song
I hear people saying happy birthday like they are the crowd cheering the all blacks

Where I’m from I am taste is my middle name
I taste the salty sea water in my mouth like i have never had water for three years
I taste the salt of the hot chips that tangles off my tongue
I taste the sauce that it dribbles down me that came off my hot dog

He used to be brown but he turned white and he looked different. My Movie was about Michael Jackson but in a drawing. the crayon that I had to use was a green one and it was a difficult.

Springbok Hamilton Games

Entering the stadium and hearing “1,2,3,4 we don't want racist tour”, “1,2,3,4 we don't want racist tour” was making me feel a bit nervous . When I was on the field Protesting I saw cans and bottles coming towards my way so I tried to dodge it. After a few minutes I asked my mum “why are they throwing cans at us?” and she replied in a light voice “well if we were here earlier you would know. Well one of the protesters said to the crowds of fans the game was cancelled so they started to be ANGRY”. And the fans were saying violent staff while the players were waiting in the locker room stretching and getting ready for the game.

Looking at the angry crowd they had posters with swear words . So we quickly got told to put on our gear. I was wearing a Police helmet and with it I had a bat I was scared to use it but I used it as a cricket bat to hit the cans away. After ten or twenty cans I hit I saw Police officers and security guards in the crowd shooting and arresting people. I felt very sad because the police broke up families and it was like New Zealand was divided and the New Zealanders and the South Africans we not united for a very long time. 
After seeing some blood on the grass and on the floor it was time to go home but none of the rugby Fans left so we got told to hit them to make them leave so I was feeling a bit sad and a bit happy at the same time. So as soon as we got home I went to sleep and it was over and done with.

Movie Reflection Bruno Mars Song


Auri,Uili,Tj Bruno Mars Treasure song from Team 5 PES on Vimeo.


Movie Reflection

In this movie is a very funny movie and there was a lot of funny bites. There was that Logan was a girl and Auri was Bruno Mars and they were making a MTV about the song treasure. Uili was as the cameraman and Tj was the  other boy who liked the girl and it was a fine movie and they asked me to do not get to her and they both danced around them.Fun movie to create  with cool guys. There was funny bites here and there.


In some bites of the movie needed some fixing. Auri needed to fix his ating by getting his timing right and should’ve learned who to learn the lyrics. We could’ve put five to seven more people in the background of the movie and make them dance with Tj and Auri circurling the girl.  They both wish that she was there's but she didn’t like neither of them. That is everything we have for today and see you later.

Reflection 2013

Yellow Hat - The things I enjoyed?
I enjoyed drawing my pattern that is a flower from the cook Islands and it is called au the hibiscus. It was a difficult pattern to to calf out. We had to print it out on a piece of paper. The first paint that we had to print is yellow.   
 
Black Hat - Which things didn't I like?
I did not like when we had to pack up because I was having a great time. We had to wait forever to make sure it was dry. I also did not like it when people steal my pencils and pens.

Green Hat - What was something interesting about this week?
I never knew how much fun you can get while doing it and it is awesome. It was an interesting tool that you had to use. They are very sharp tools and you can cut yourself.
White Hat - What did I learn?  I learnt Samoan languages and they are quite hard to announce. Like Fa’ a’ ali”ao is a starfish and Fa’aatualoa is a centipede. I also learnt Fa’atumoa and it is the banana pod.

Long Boarding Is Awesome!!!!!


Whistling past everyone, I was on a long board, and feeling like a racing car that was on turbo!!! Reaching my goal at the top of the ramp, I slid down on the solid smooth ground. Zoom zoom zoom through the skate park. Enjoying it. Zipping and zapping like a lightning bolt struck the Sky Tower.

Do you know what a long board is? A long board is a skate board except it is much longer. You will need to have great balance and speed with your legs. My family only has two and I like long boarding and can do it if I have spare time. Me and Jordan (my brother) like long boarding and ride on them up and down the driveway.

We even have races but not all the time. Do you have one? Would you enjoy one? I enjoy hanging on a long board with my family and we think that it is a great thing to do at the skate park. My friends enjoy it, and their names are Uili and Wyatt. You can buy one online or at a skate shop.

Maybe I might see you at the skate park with a long board sometime.

Ice Skating Rocks!!!


Skating on ice is so fun that everyone calls it Ice Skating. It was my first time on the Ice. Eventually I got used to it and it was so cool that I went so fast. I past everyone like a cheetah. Have you ever skated on ice before?

Have I told you that I was amazing at it? Well I am!!! All you need to do is hold on to the wall and pull yourself toward the end of the wall and you will get going in no time. How you turn is just to lean whichever way you want to go.

There were five of us Ice Skating and we were having a great time. My youngest brother Toby was very good even though he was just five. Noah and Jordan were excellent as well. They enjoyed it so much. Mum and I were helping Toby but mum helped him most and I think that we are the best at Ice Skating kids and parent ever. I love my family and they are talented!!!   

Ice Skating is awesome and cool!!!!!!

Rugby 2013

Rugby is a sport that you may kick, pass, score tries and tackle. It is a sport that lots of countries learn and play against other teams like the All Blacks, which is by far the best team in the world. They had just beaten France’s 3rd test match. It also keeps me fit. That is why I play rugby because I would like to play for a team like the All Blacks. I play for the U12’s rugby team  for Marist. I enjoy it a lot.

I sometimes score a try but it is hard because you have to be able to have the speed to run past them and it is so hard. Marist is a club team and it is a team that  has to beat other team’s like Varsity who are a hard team to beat. I also play for my school, Pt England, and it’s the best.

Last year we made it to the Auckland Champions and we were the Champions of Champions. We tried to make it in this year but we lost against Sacred Heart. They were good. I have to play in rugby boots and there are two types of rugby boots and I wear moulds not sprigs.  I enjoy it but I am still learning how to tackle with my shoulder but it always hurts and it is also fun if you play. I wish I could at least get a try.  

Enjoy playing Rugby!!!!!``

Are Lollies Bad For You


There are a lot of different lollies like, Bubble gum, Lollipops, Sour lollies, Pineapple lumps, Sour snakes, Razzo and a whole lot more.  


Children should not eat lollies. They can do horrible things to you like rot your teeth and give you diabetes and you don’t want it. They also make you hyper and you can go crazy. It can also make you  feel sick and make you fat and you won't be able to run or do exercise.   


Even though lollies are yummy and tasty, it has too much sugar and it’s bad for you.
They can make you happy, but only for a short amount of time. They are so cheap to buy, that is why people buy heaps of lollies.

Children adore lollies and there are many of them that do. Once you eat one packet you have to eat more and it is hard not to.  Children can get addicted from lollies like me.  Lollies make kid go weird.

Don’t eat too much lollies or you’ll get fat.

Obesity


In America, there is a place that sells enormous burgers that people love to eat.

There are some people in America that weigh over 500 pounds. Many restaurants in America sell fatty burgers. There is a lot of fat in it and that is how most of the people become obese!

Some people have to make over sized coffins and they even use them for young kids that are about 11 years old. A Lady hardly gets to go outside and when she walks in pain and she weighs about 750 pounds. She always eats and drinks junk food that is very unhealthy for her.

Obesity is growing in America. 1/3 of people are obese in America. Evansville, Indiana is the most obese state in America. Obesity can cause health problems like heart attacks, heart disease, shortness of breath, shorter life expectancy and much more.

This man was 29 when he died from being too obese and from eating more than you are meant to.  

Obesity is so not cool.
