Making an Eye from from cylinders - Tech

Today for tech we learnt how to make an eye using one shape. The shape we made an eye with was a cylinder. We did this on Tinkercad. I found this quite useful because I might need it in the future. While we were making our shape we had to align and group the shapes.

Camp - Photo Story


Today we had to make a photo story reflecting on camp. These are the photo's of my activity group during all the different and cool activities. It also shows us participating and contributing. The activity I enjoyed the most was orienteering because I was reading the map properly and I was able to find all the cones in time.

Camp 2017 Collage


This is a photo collage of the 2017 camp that activity group 1 did. We added pictures of archery, high ropes, chariot building, chariot race, camp concert and adventure based learning. I really enjoyed the camp concert because our group was brave and performed a great skit.

Kokako - Infographic


Today Oh Hsen and I made an infographic on the north island kokako. There are two types of kokako birds the north island and the south island bird. We researched about the north island kokako because the place we wen for camp is called Kokako Lodge and we live in the north island. I learnt that north island kokako can be found in South Auckland and Waikato.

Kiwi sport - Tennis and Fustal


Futsal was really fun today because we went over to the riverside sports club and played tennis and futsal on the actual pitches. I found tennis a little hard because it was my first time playing tennis. I know I did not do that well at tennis but I learnt some new skills and had fun. After we had futsal. Everyone was split into one of the three teams Black, Red and White. I was put in the black. First up was team red vs team white. It was a tough game but the white team won by one point. Next it was our turn to vs the white team. We did lot's of great passes and a pass from Daniel to me made a goal when I blasted the ball and it went to the top right  corner. The next goal I scored was with the help of Ofa. He played a nice through ball for me then I smashed it to the bottom left corner. I was a fun game and we won 2 - 0. Then for our last game we played the red team. We all passed it around everybody got the ball and before we knew it it was 1 - 0. Daniel ran and struck the ball to the top left corner. Our team was really tired and right after Daniel's goal the red team scored a banger smashing it through our goalie's legs. It was tied up and there was 30 seconds remaining, I got the ball and blasted it to the bottom left corner.

Towering Stand


My heart was racing nearly as quick as light. I checked my harness for the one hundredth time before I decided it was safe for me to go up. Each step I took my heart beat faster and faster. Finally I reached the top. I wanted to see how high I was, then that’s when it hit me. My heart was banging and I stood there frozen like a mannequin.


I could not do anything, then I heard my friends cheering me on. After that I said to myself “I can do this!' Each step I took it got more intense than before I knew it I reached the other side. I was so happy that I made it! The instructor told me I had to walk backwards to the middle. I took one step after another and I got a bit scared but after a couple of steps of fear I got there.

When I reached the point of no return I spread my wings and flew to the ground. I was so happy that I could hug someone.


This is a recount about my favourite moment at camp.

People living in Auckland have been asked to Conserve water. Why?


This morning we started with inquiry. Recently Auckland was asked to conserve water. over 415 million litres of water was wasted. We had to find out why. We then had to make a DLO about Conservation in Auckland. We had to include why we need to conserve water, how we can do that and what are the consequences of wasting water.
