Last weekend my family and my uncle from Wales in the United Kingdom  went on a trip to the coromandel. When I woke up I didn’t really want to go because I wanted to say home and play minecraft but my dad told me it was a family outing so I had to go. I tried to take my time getting my togs ready but I had one hour to get ready.Once we had all your things together we left the house and got some drinks.

Then we left Auckland and I fell asleep in the back. But when I woke up we were outside the gas station. Me and my dad were wondering why there were lot of muscle cars. We asked someone that had parked outside the gas station and the man said because there was a beach hop so all the muscle cars go to all the beach’s in the coromandel.

When we got to the hot water beach we hired some shovels so we could dig a pit in the sand. Once we finished our sand pit the hot water came in.

When we were too hot we would go into the sea and we would cool down. Then we went down to Hahei and ate some lunch. When I finished my food I went swimming. When I was getting shellfish me and my brother saw a eagleray come towards us.

Tamaki College sports

Tamaki College, a place located in Glen Innes, and just down the road from Point England School. Tamaki college has a variety of cultures but mostly Maori and Polynesian. Some faces would appear familiar to others. That’s because some students from Tamaki college attended Point England school.

We go to Tamaki College because it gives the older students experience with younger students for other sports activities. We come down so were not stuck in the class all day. The tutors are Year 12 students that attend Tamaki College. They are teaching us P.E. skills. They help us learn about leadership  for N.C.E.A.

P.E. helps to us get fitter and it helps to train our muscles. It helps for long term health or even  we can become interested in sports or social activities.

Our experience with sports at Tamaki College is fun and can sometimes be exciting. It includes different activities like electric fence, blindfolded course (things like jumping on to things).

A cyclone is a big spinning collection of winds. Cyclones and hurricanes are usually named after women, thats why the cyclone was called Lusi.

New Zealand was lucky that it wasn't deadly. Cyclones in the past have been  deadly. Cyclones are a bit like tornadoes but they don’t suck things and they don’t come down to the ground but still can kill.

Cyclones are created by the winds from the southern hemisphere and  northern hemisphere come together and make a wind vortex. And it can move where the wind blows

Fia Fia

Fia Fia is a show that the school does every second year. There are groups like Tongan, Hip hop, Niue, Kapa Haka and more.

For my Fia Fia group I am doing ‘Precisely That’. Precisely That is a dance that our group have to do all at the same time or after. The tutors are Mr Barks, Mr Sommerville and last week Mr Goodwin. Some of my friend's who were chosen to join were Iisa, Jake and a couple of others.
We haven't learnt any moves yet but I think it would be easy to learn. There are videos of things that we are going to do like precise band marching. So far I haven’t been enjoying what were doing. I think that if I focus I would start to enjoy my group.

On the night that we perform there will be stalls. If you want to use a space you have to pay twenty dollars if you want to sell food. I am looking forward to the different foods that people are selling.
