Pt England Reserve - Hokulea

In this picture It's shows St Pius sitting down, waiting for the other schools to settle down.
It was a very hot day, lucky the student came with their hats.

Different other schools walked from their school.My thoughts about this picture is that it looked like it was a special time for the Maori and also the elders, to see the Hokulea, their were also people talking photo's of the boat, and the crew.

During this time, I was excited because in the past few weeks my class and I has been learning about the Hokulea, we also saw picture about it too.

At the end, We got to meet the crew, It's was a honour to meet them for the first time.When I went to meet the crew, I took a video of them.I also felt better than excited, I felt overwhelmed by meeting them.

I also saw the boat, It's was beautiful and I also can't believe I actually saw it.

Level 3 addition

This task is about solving maths problem

A) Maraea is saving to buy a cat.  In 3 weeks she has saved $9, $56 and $72.
Show how to work out how much she has saved altogether.

200 + 100 = 300
300 + 30 = 330

C) Te Ao is saving to buy a horse.  So far she has saved $17, $160, $72, and $148.  Show how to work out how much she has saved altogether.

! Hokule'a arrives at New Zealand !

This morning was a very exciting day for all the school cluster.Everyone at school wore their jumpers, they looked very neat.Some of the teachers had their shoes on, for the walk.Everyone was so excited, they started to talk about it. Where we were going was to Pt England Reserve, because the  Hokulea, boat was there.It’s was also their 40 year of Voyaging around the world.

Their were 24 performers, from different other  school performed a haka to the crew. Then the crew, sang a beautiful song in their own languages.They sang beautiful, without the microphones, they also sang clearly and loud too.
When I saw the boat, I couldn't believe my eyes, it was just like in the picture, that my class was looking at it about a week ago.The waves were beautiful, and  the sun reflected on the beach.

At the end, all the schools got to meet the crew.First, it was Pt England to go, they took forever.Some of the schools, were so excited to meet the crew, so bad.So the schools had to run, while hi-fiveing their hands.They were so kind, they greeted their selves to us, when went go past.It was my turn now, I decided to go with one of the teacher phone to greet them while recording.I was happy because when I went past they join in and said “ Hi” or took picture with them. That was one of the best events, the school cluster has been attended to !

I Just can’t believe we meet the crew, plus we saw the boat too.
The Hokulea, is a hawaiian boat and it came to New Zealand 
on 25.03.15.

The boat was also launched on 18.03.1975.

My holiday recount writing

First, at church, the members from the chorus group, told everyone in church, that we will go and spend the day at, up north, since it was public holiday.They said there is this beautiful beach called” Orewa “.Everyone got excited about it.The next morning, we organise our stuff and food, cause where we're going is far and its going to be long.I definitely brought sunblock, and my glasses, because my eye was swollen and if i don't take my glasses, it’ll be worse, the next day. Anyway, we made it, up north, but it was really difficult to find my nena and the others.But, lucky my GPS was on...When we were finally at the beach. I jumped out of the van, i could see the beach...It was lovely, beautiful. I was so happy, that I was going to get my change.....But, then I remember, I still had my swollen eye.
Secondly, we sat down with the church members, and we had a blast, by playing cards and playing different kinds of activities.We were also facing the beach. I couldn't take it any more, i was thinking in my mind. “What do I do”? or “Should I touch the beach with my legs”?... So I thought, yeah I should. So I went away from where we were sitting, to the beach.
My feet were in, I could just feel I was in heaven, right now. So, I looked around and see, if anyone in my family saw me.Because, if they did.I’ll be in trouble and also be embarrassed.
I moved up a little and the waves was getting higher and higher.Than I thought, it not that bad, if I wet my legs and hands.

Furthermore, I did it, and I didn't know their was these kids playing with their surfboard.So they bumped me down... and of course I got wet... I panicked so I got up, and wiggled and try to dry myself by facing the sun. That took forever,but it worked.So then it was lunch, and that was good because I was starving.When everyone was done eating.They went back, to the beach.It annoyed me, because all the kids asked me if I'm swimming.So I told my mum, if I could go to where my older sister was.A few people were their,but it was way better than where my church members were staying.I stayed there until my mum, called me, and that was time to go home.
On the way home I fell asleep on the way.

Conclusion: I really had fun on my holiday and wished I could do it all again.

Welcome to my 2015 Journey
