Koru Games

Over the past 3 days all of the year 7 and 8's went to the Koru Games.

I am in the A team for Football  (Soccer) 

Over the 3 days something I enjoyed the most was competing against the other teams.
Because it was hard and challenging.

From the beginning of the year I improved on my control of the ball and my positioning of the field.

Something from the Koru Games I will remember is....
Having fun with my friends and making new friends.

Peer mediation distinction evidence #2 of 4

Peer mediation distinction evidence # 2 of 4

Peer mediation

Every Monday at lunchtime I have peer mediation.
I have peer mediation in the second half of lunch.
I do peer mediation with Honor.
Today for peer mediation Honor and I went around the field several times to make sure everyone was having fun and getting along and making sure that there were no problems.
Today at peer mediation there were a few things that went on, one of them was.... One of the juniors had hit another junior with a stick.
We went over to talk it through and get all sides of the story and to solve the problem.
It ended out well because we managed to get the true story and because the boy apologised for hitting.
Every one was happy and went on with their lunch time.
I showed leadership by... Setting a good example for others to follow, listening to the issue without judgement and letting everyone speak, offering solution, turning up to peer mediation, doing my duty well and keeping my eyes open and being aware.

CHOIR distinction evidence # 4 of 4

choir distinction evidence # 4of 4


On Friday we have choir, we have to get there early, not everyone does this which really holds everything up but I am always the first one there out of respect for the teachers and the whole choir.
We need to be there by 8.45 so I like to be at school by 8.20 so I can be organised and ready for the learning day and choir.
We went over a few songs and had to fix them a bit as from our choir trip to Avonhead School.
We practiced the Mexican wave, American child, ring of fire and our new song which is called ADIEMUS.

I showed leadership by turning up early, setting a good example for others and singing with pride.

Today at lunchtime I had this thing called code club.
This is a new club that has been set up to learn about program coding.

Choir distinction evidence # 3 of 4

Choir distinction evidence # 3 of 4

Today I had choir

Today for choir we didn't just have an ordinary practice.
We went to Avonhead school by bus to have a choir practice for the music Festival.
The bus left at 9.15 and as per the school rule we had to show respect on the bus, to the students, the teacher and the bus driver and the parent helpers.
First we went into the hall, which was massive, and found our seats.
There were heaps of other students from other schools there, I would guess around 250 students.
The first song was the national anthem and the leader of that song went through how to pronounce words and sing them a particular way which was really helpful.
We went through all of the songs in the red book and with each song a different singing teacher would go through how to sing and say how to sing until it was just right.
I found this really helpful and learnt a lot.
I showed leadership by being respectful on the bus to students, parents, teacher and bus driver.
And by singing my heart out listening to instruction and following through and by paying attention and leading by example.
