Reflection 2015

a. Write a quality reflection that shares my journey this year.  This includes reflection upon the years ahead.

Success Criteria:  
We'll know we have succeeded when our reflection covers the
9 guides that help me to reflect on this year and the year ahead.

How do you feel about this year?
At the beginning of the year I was a bit nervous. Then in term 2 and 3 I felt more comfortable being a senior because I knew everybody and was used to the morning routines. Now in term 4 I am feeling a bit sad because the Yr8’s are leaving.
What did you find especially satisfying this year?
Still having my same friends from year 6 and also making and meeting new friends. Another thing was that I trusted my home class teacher Mrs Tele’a.
What did you find especially frustrating/difficult this year?
Staying organised like charging my netbook every night and making sure I have pencils to do my work with. Another thing I found frustrating/difficult was finishing my work on time.
If you were to to give yourself a grade out of 10 - 10 being awesome…what would you grade yourself? Why?  I would give myself a 7 because I think this year I have become more confident and have learned more in maths like about pi, Algebra and much more.
In what ways did you contribute to team 5 in 2015?
I made and purchased a cake to help fundraise for our trips.I also came in to help sell food at the garage sale in term 1.
What would you change for yourself in 2016?
I would try to finish my work on time
What might you want next year’s teacher to know about you (things you’re good at)?
That I like to do art and design and create things.
What things might you want more help with?
Maybe art or maths.
What could you show your teacher from your blog to help her/him understand those things?
my thinkboards or my presentations.

I really enjoyed this year I enjoyed my classmates, our trips and espically my teachers. Thank you so much and all the best for the year 8's next year.

The warehouse visitors

Image result for The warehouse nzThis morning two workers named Gurpreet and Ellie from the warehouse come in and kindly gave us a check of 1094.46 dollars that's right 1094.46 but before we get into that I’ll tell you about our welcoming. We welcomed them by doing a mihi and karakia we also sang a waiata.

They had a surprise for our principal Mr burt and it was that he got the award for Community hero he got his own certificate to prove and a 500 dollars gift card.

One of our student Josephine said a thank you speech to the all of the warehouse for their generosity. Because did you know that they also help to pay for some of our trips and camps.

So thank you Warehouse for all of your help along the way we really appreciate it.
