Immersion Assembly

This terms topic is “Game On!” At assembly each team performed their items.

Team 1 played their movie. Their movie was about going for gold and achieving goals and trying your best in everything! Team 2s movie was similar to team 1s movie but slitely different.

Team 3 presented a movie about gymnastics. Their movie was really interesting to watch and their was a lot of flexible women in the movie. Team 4 made a movie about a new sport in the commonwealth games.

Team 5s movie was the best to be honest. Their movie was basicly just about how they went overseas and watched different sports that relate to the commonwealth games. It was fun watching team 5s movie and one of the teachers also got to see Kim Kardashian, WOW!


These holidays were boring to be honest. I spent the whole holidays in Mangere with a few of my first cousins.

My uncle asked us on the first week if we wanted to go watch movies and we all said yes, but then he said he was lying! We were all really angry because he played a trick on us.

All we did was stay home, clean the whole house and just watch t.v! Boring right? We would always get in trouble every single morning for waking up late. Like what? Its the holidays, we can wake up anytime or sleep anytime.

The second week of holidays was way better than the first week. We had more food and more fun movies came on t.v! On Friday night (2nd week of holidays) we went to Sylvia Park to watch movie. All the movies were too late so we just went to the food court and had butter chicken. We then went to ice skating but we didn't go in because the queue was too long. So we went to countdown and bought junk and went home.

I am really expecting a more fun and way better holidays next time!

Future Aspiration

Have you ever heard about future aspirations? Well, this morning three special leaders came to our school to talk to us about our future and careers.

We greeted them with a school waiata and then we had a welcome speech by Andrew Patterson. Andrew Patterson is a radio dj that talks on the radio every morning. He told us some really interesting things about himself.

He then gave it to Jason Sharma to do his speech. Jason Sharma is known as maths teacher at Tamaki College. Jason was talking about how he became a teacher and why he loved it. Jason said that he was really into maths and he studied really hard to become a maths teacher and he reached his goal. He made his parents really proud and also himself.

The next speaker was officer Fareka. Officer Fareka is a policeman. He said that his uncle inspired him to become a police. He told us that if we ever go to college and wants to become a police then we could always go to him and he can show us around the station and also take us for a ride around.

The final speaker was the ex head girl at Epsom College. Her name is Arizona Lega. She was the best speaker to be honest. She was really confident and she told us about her past years in primary and how she’d always get in trouble for talking to much. When she was in intermediate she became school captain and she kept asking the teachers if they were sure if she was school captain because she’d always get in trouble and they said yes. Every teacher told her that her talent was talking. She said that it was suprising news how she was head girl at Epsom and shes now studying to be a journalist.

These three special speakers really helped and inspired me into what I want to be in the future.
