Mr Andrew Patterson

1/11/17 Around 9:30, Mr Andrew Patterson came to Team 5 to have a talk with us. The first thing he talked about was A + I = M. A is for Aspiration, I is for Inspiration and M is for Motivation. This talk was about how we'll succeed in the future if we aimed for what we wanted to do.

The second subject he was talking about was Grit. Grit is having the ability to carry on even if you're not feeling good about your life. The last subject was "Be a giver". Giving people is such a great thing to do because you'll actually make the other person feel great and you'll also be proud of yourself. This 11 years old boy who attends to Manurewa Intermediate. He gave his lunch money to this homeless man two weeks straight. The great thing about it was that Uili cared about the homeless man and not about himself. In 2 weeks, Uili changed the homeless man's life and now he's got a house and a job.

If you want to know more about Willy, here is a Link to it. I hope you enjoyed reading some inspiring stories. What Uili did gave me so much inspiration to be like him.

How to be a good role model

Good role models are everywhere around us, they usually help us with our work. We can talk to them about stuff that we are uncomfortable with and we can take notes and lessons from them about how to be a good role model.

The 1st way to be a good role model is to behave and do appropriate things in front of kids. If you do any rude or cheeky stuff in front of them, they’ll just copy you. That means you’re not being a good role model.

The 2nd way to be a good role model is to respect others and treat them the way you want to be treated. If you treat them with no respect then they will treat you the same way you treated them.

To wrap it off, you make sure that the words that come out of your mouth are kind and appropriate. If you say kind and appropriate stuff then your mind will start becoming positive.

For conclusion, I think that we just need to behave and do appropriate stuff in front of kids. Reason being is because, they are the future of our next generation and what they learn from us now, they’ll teach and show to those around them.

For our first week of school we started off with a explanation writing.

Special assembly

This week is the Niuean Language week to celebrate it, the niuean kids performed an item at assembly today. Some of the seniors said some speeches to start off the performance then they performed us an item that they created through out the week. After that item, we had some sad moments because our lovely Ms Vani was leaving P.E.S. We gave her some gifts and Talita finished it off with a prayer.Image result for niuean flag

Take Flight

WALT: Engage our readers by using precise language

I was travelling in the 'Radio-Flyer; when all of a sudden my grandpa and I were in a jungle. There were black monkeys with purple eyes that were screeching at us.  Long scaley alligators were all around us searching for  food. For a moment I wondered if we were going to be their next meal. Slowly, grandpa and I realised that the alligators were coming towards us, their long jaws snapping hungrily. My grandpa and I tried to escape but there was no way out of the jungle. Wherever we went, there were  deadly animals chasing us like they wanted to rip our skin off. Eventually, we came to a clearing and the animals were all gone. I guess they found a better meal with better protein!!!
This week, we're focusing on using precise language in our writing. Up above, is my
writing about the Radio - Flyer and there's a video you can watch. Hope you enjoy!!
