Math Goals

This year in maths is to learn all my basic facts that I haven't quite nailed yet. Once I reach them I would like to learn about Interest, GST and money adding. Today I was learning about simple Interest and how much money you would make If you save.

Fia Fia Recount

My heart was pounding as I entered the gate.
“Is my hair alright...?”
Meanwhile all my friends were eating from the food stalls while my money was safe in my pocket. I had 20 dollars. My first choice in food stalls were doughnuts then toffee apples, Hangi, $5 plate of BBQ and drinks.

I had a mean feed. What to do next? I went to see some of my mates from other schools. And so the night continued.
“It is time!”
“Time to go to your holding rooms. My heart stopped for a moment... My friends asked if I was alright,
“I’m just a little bit nervous about the amount of people.” I left the stalls and walked to my room.

My costume made me feel pretty cool I wasn’t as scared as I was before, in fact I wasn’t scared at all. It was like my costume had some kind of superpower. It is only a lavalava, Sisi (grass necklace.), ankle sisi’s, and arm ones.⇩ I’m the one with the spear and all the yellow and red on the photo.

We walked out to the main stage hidden through our secret route. We anticipated a long wait, and sure enough it was. Then finally it was our turn. Our turn to walk on stage and give it our all.

On stage I could see everybody with their eyes glued to the performers.
“No mistakes.” I thought to myself.
“I’ve got thousands of people watching my every move.”
Everything flowed perfectly. My voice shattered from all the shouting and screaming, I was the underdog, My friend Lorenzo was the leader for the haka (Traditional war dance.) and intro. I lead everything else.

Exiting the stage I found myself grasping my throat. My voice was definitely lost.

It was an awesome night. I can’t wait to see what college Fia Fia has in store for me.

Fia Fia Rehearsal 2014.

Fia Fia Rehearsal 2014: Calvin.

I can't believe that Fia Fia is tomorrow. On the ground I found my self amped and really excited ready to leap on stage. Trying not to lose my voice before the night gave a tinge more worry as well, but that never slowed me down I still gave it 100%. My eyes opened up wide, as I heard my group get called to the stage. My Legs rose and my heart pounded with joy. This is going to be awesome! "From the smallest island of the pacific,The rock, please give a big welcome for our Niuean Warriors!"

Tiaki Taonga

Tiaki Taonga means caring for other people,  caring for things,  It is our school Motto for the year,  You can show it by being kind,  We show it lots at P.e School, It’s A Maori Phrase,  It Means Care for it,  People are using it to make other people feel special,  it means to me put yourself in someone else's shoe.  It means to show Empathy.

This Morning we completed a speed writing challenge. In ten minutes we were expected to Give Adefinition about Tiaki Taonga, Ten Things. Then We were Given 5 Minutes to pair share. Here is my result.
