What is social media?


Social media is apps that you can post photos/videos that other people can see and you can talk to other people that you do or don’t know .Social Media is how people make trends/videos. It’s when they post a video on the internet and other people see it and they make the same video and it turns into a trend . 


Online shopping is really used to buy things overseas or just if you don’t want to go inside the shops . The scary part about online shopping is when you search for things that you want and it will come/pop up with things that  you want because they save your search history so they know what you want so they will recommend things that they already know. That’s how people know A.I is saving their search history. 


Why is social media unsafe/bad?


Social media can not be safe in so many ways , like lots of people blackmail. Blackmail is when someone threatens you to do something then you get so scared

 that sometimes you have to listen and that’s when we should get our parents involved not because you are scared but because they should know what is going on.  Sometimes it can be scary because people can post bad things on the internet that kids can’t see. That is why social media is not that safe for kids. People also cyberbullying. Cyberbullying is used A LOT, most people insult others for fun and others do it because they are not happy with their lives.  



Why can social media be safe/good ?


There are not really many good things on the internet but I know that if your kids go out or go missing and they have a phone on them you can go on your phone and see their location but at the same time it’s bad . If you’re in danger you can go on your phone and call for help and they can do their best to help you or get help for you .

Rippa Rugby

we started walking down to the gate and then we crossed the road and then we walked all the way down to @Dunkirk park . On Tuesday 29 of August we went to a Rippa rugby tournament down at Dunkirk park . 


We have been going down onto the field to play Rippa for the tournament for like a few weeks and we got better and better at it  . 


On the day of the Rippa rugby tournament i was so excited but a little bit scared, after i got change i went to school and after a few minutes when i was there  the bell ring when it ring all of the year 8,7 and 6 that signed up for the rippa  went under the canopy so Mr.Bell could sign us off , after we know everyone was there we went toilet and got our stuff ready to go .


We started to get into two’s and when we all got a partner  


When we got there we looked for a place to put our mat down. When we found our spot we went down to the field and placed the mat down so we could put our bags down . When we put our bags down we took our shoes off and started practising for our first game . 


When we were practicing pasting the rugby ball to each other Mr.Bell said to go to our first game and my team’s first game was on field 7 and we were versing Glen brae school . It was a fun game but we won but when we knew that the other team won we all ran to each other and started cheering and we were all just happy. When we all knew we won we all went back to our bags to go and eat and got ready for the next game .  

We started walking to our second and we were playing on the same field ( field 7 and 8 ) as the first game and we were versing  Glen Innes school . They were a really good team but sadly we lost but I didn’t really care because it was a good game after all. After the game we went back to our spot where our bags are , when we got there Mr.Bell said that we were versing each other .


We were walking to field 7 to verse each other , when were playing the game the sps 2 got so many tries and we lost there were a good team any ways  , we walked back to the bags and then Mr.Bell said that sps 1 was in 7 place and sps 2 is in 3nd place and that sps 1 only has one more game 


When we were walking to to our field Mr.Bell said that we were versing glen brae again it was a good game but i was happy because we won and then we all ran to the other team and then we knew that we won and they\all jumped like monkeys but not me I’m not a monkey (hehe ) .


And then sps 2 had their last game and this was there cas to go 1st place they were versing Glen brae school , when we were walking up to the field the glen brae looked like they were so ready it was like they knew that they were gonna win and sps 2 look so tired when they were playing glen brae was running so fast when they had the ball with them and that is why sps 2 lost and glen brae won i was happy for sps 2 because they were still 2nd place .


When the game was over we want back to our bags so we pack up , clean our mess and some people got pick up and went home when some people had to walk home ( one of them was me ) when we finish cleaning , pick up we started walking up to school , when we got to school i was so tried but it was so fun and then when the bell ran i had to walk home so i was even more tired but when i got home i went to sleep .



Tsunami is a wave but its a bigger one that damage buildings and thing

A tsunami can work by a volcano eruption underwater making the water go up making a bigger wave that can be called a tsunami and one the biggest tsunamis in history was in ”Lituya bay ,Alaska and it was 1,720 feet tall .

A way you know a tsunami is coming is when there is a warning sound and when the water goes into the sea and comes back to the beach as a big wave – tsunami

The Scary hole

My teacher put a photo on the TV and we had to write about it .

One day me and my friends went into the forest.

when we were walking around we found an abandoned lake and a big hole in the middle of it. 

There was a wharf to get on the boat, then we went on the boat and took it to the hole, when we got into the hole we went down the stairs, the bottom of the hole had water all over the floor.

When we were looking around one of my friends stepped on this brick and it went down and then the door at the top of the hole closed then we ran to the top and tried to open the door but it wouldn’t open.

An hour later we got hungry, lucky we had food in our bags we were in there for so long we were in there for hours, hours turned into days, days turned into months.

We started to run out of food. Finally some people came and we got out and went home .     

Ki Orahi

Ki Orahi 


On the 13th of June, St Patrick’s kids year 6,7 and 8 did Ki Orahi. We had to play with each other in our house colours and since we were playing in our house colours we got to wear Mufti. By mufti I mean we get to wear our house colour and I was Rata so I was wearing red.


 There were 6 games in total and I only got to play two games. My first game was at 12:20 and my second game was at 1:40. There was only one winner and the winner was Rimu and the second place was Totara and third and fourth place was Rata and Kauri because they were tied. Ki Orahi was so fun. I hope we do the same next term  .  

epro 8

On Monday May 8th Room 7 did EPro 8 . 

The first thing we did was called “Getting Started” and it was just like how to use the tools. When we were half way done the bell rang . After morning tea we took our project down when we were finished taking it down, went to the field and did “Throwing Weights” so we would no the distance of it when it was Full to not full.

After the Throwing weights activity we did our very first activity. It was called Blowing up a hut. It was so much fun and funny building it because one of my teammates was wearing the cardboard and making her look funny. We finished building the hut the next day.

 The next day, we finished the hut at morning tea after the hut we were answering questions. When we were finished we did one more activity and it was a Dump Truck. Our Dump Truck looked so cool and real because it could move because it was wheel and the back part where the rubbish goes could move. Then we did our last pack up. I was a bit sad because I wanted to do more EPro8.  

On St Patrick’s day my family and I didn’t really do much. We were just washing and packing clothes so we could go down to  Te Kuiti because my nana’s brother and my Aunty (My mum’s cousin) passed away and was buried there .


On Saturday my family and I woke up at 5:00 and got change and packed our bags into our new car . After

 that we got in the car and went on our road trip.


The road trip was 2h but all I was doing was just watching my ipad and sleeping . halfway there we stopped at Waitomo homestead to eat Breakfast I just got a fried chicken burger and chips but everyone else had pies. The food was really yummy.


After we ate, we went to New World to get some water to drink with the food and then we went to the marae . 

When we got to the marae, I was just playing with my cousin and then everyone went to the graveyard to go see my nana’s brother’s tombstone.


After that we went back to the marae and had some food. The food was yummy. After we ate we went back to Auckland the drive was 2h and a half back home .When we got home we unpacked and cleaned the car and washed my brother and I School uniform and hung it out and went to sleep .


On Saturday I had a shower and got changed and woke up my brother so he got changed so we can go to the church 175th Jubilee. After we got changed we waited for my nana’s friend to come and pick us up so we could go to church.


The fun trip

My teacher put a photo on the TV and we had to write a story about it .

One day my family and I went on a trip. When we got there the worker told us to do a maze and if we do it we can swim in this hole fill with water . We thing about it and then they showed us what it look like and it look cool so we went .


After talking to the worker we went inside the maze of course we took some photo’s . The maze was so fun because my uncle was telling a joke and one of my cousin was laughing to hard that she peed her swimming togs it was funny but she didn’t care if we laughed because we were her family. When we got to the big hole that look like a pool we went down the ladder and jump in the water when I jump in the water was so cold I started to moved around so I can get warm . It was so fun the best part was going on the deck and jumping of into the water
